HELP!Updated car software now i got two fault codes, "Steering Wheel Heavy" and "DSC"

Hi, I got my BMW F20 updated by someone because I had older firmversion he said and he updated it to the latest with an "Autel" item.

But I have a problem now, I get 2 fault messages.
First being "Heavyier steering" (yellow light on the dashboard and get message)
Second being "DSC" (yellow light on the dashboard and get message)

I can't contact that person who updated my car now so that's impossible.

First of all the steering isn't heavy but it's not correct (not right calibrated or how to say, no feel to it).

I have tried driving around a bit, it didn't help... tried to remove plus from the battery for a couple of minutes, it didn't help either... and now I have removed the plus pole from the battery again but for a little longer time I figured. Hope that helps! I need especially the DSC now during the winter, and ofcourse fix the Steering Wheel problem because I think they are related.

This happened as soon as the update was finished. And their were no interruptions during the process.

I have a ENET cable and ESYS, but i have never used it before.

It might be an initializing thing? Becuase he who updated said drive around and it will dissapear by itself but it hasn't sadly...


If anyone can help me solve i would be so grateful!
Thanks in advance!

Is it possible with Esys and the ENET cable? I can get ISTA program also.

I also have Delphi (autocom) program maybe it's possible with that?

First of all, I used Delphi and I initialized the steering wheel which worked, the dashboard lights disappeared even the DCS went away.

So it needed initialization but because this was caused by software upgrade it bothered me that it didn't go well.

After all, it wasn't impossible to find the guy with the Autel that programmed it the first time. So we reprogrammed the car and every module was coding great so there were no errors. So now I have the latest program in the car.

I really don't know the differences but one thing I noticed was (if it's not imagination) that the sound quality was better and louder (i have HIFI).

if you do a softwareupdate of the EPS ( not coding) you need to initialise the steering
