Steering angle sensor

Have a 04 325i that has 2 yellow lights on the dash, one is a triangle with a circle and the other is the brake light both are yellow. Can worn control arm bushings cause this? Someone mentioned it can be recalibrated, is that true?
Thank You!

Hello and welcome to the forum! The triangle with the circle around it is the traction control OFF light (DSC). The brake light can be due to the dynamic braking system or a need for additional brake fluid.

Thanks Dmitry
These two lights come on simutaneously and are both yellow. The brake fluid level is right on. I have read on bimmer forums.co.uk of owners having the same problem and it is the steering angles sensor. Do you know If it's possible to be calibrated? Local BMW shop also diagnosed this as a faulty steering angle sensor.

From what I've read it can be done - there are a few YouTube videos on it; but it seems like an alignment shop should be able to do this.
