Interesting. I have been through 2 batteries to double check that wasn’t the issue. The latest one is directly from bmw and shouldn’t be the issue. My motorcycle doesn’t actually have a vds specific sensor where most do. I will try moving the battery and moving the white device as in the video to see if I have any success with moving it. Question - can you see the vds error come and go on the dash as you move the white device? Any more information about the ignition switch?I also had this VDS error code on my 2012 bike and some people mentioned that incorrect voltages from the battery can cause this error code, I load tested my battery and it failed the test in cooler conditions so I replaced the battery and the code went away.
I was also dealing with another issue at the same time which i think wan't related but ti was sue to the ignition switch being faulty.
I have other videos explaining the other issues
