Morning everyone, does a lateral acceleration sensor require calibration once swapped out?, have access to Bcables lead and software if needed, thanks

No no need to recode. Worth plugging in just to clear any stored codes

I didn't know the Z3 had one of these!

What does it do? Back off the power if it thinks you are going to spin out?

It's part of the DSC system
includes 4 wheel speed sensors
Steering wheel angle sensor 2x Brake pressure sensors
Lateral acceleration sensor
Acceleration sensor
DSC pump and control

More complex than the ASC system.
