Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
I have a 2000 323i i have abs light on and my stability control lights on it cam on after i replaced my lower control arm on the front drivers side
The suspension height is stored and read in the cars ecu and as you have replaced the lower arm, the ride height would have changed. Assuming you have driven the car, slacken of the lower arm locating nuts and bolts and bounce the car on that corner. Re-tighten the bolts/ nuts and drive the car. If the light still remains on then the ecu will need to be re-set. BMW charge approx £45 to do this and prviding that you have no other faults with the car this should then be ok.
