I am not sure you can change the screen language, call BMW customer support. As far as the ABS light the 1st thing to do is run a ABS trouble code test on the ABS system module/computer, a dealer will have to do this, as long as the light is on the AHBS is dis-abled.

1997 BMW Z3 brake lights won't come on.


The brake lamp circuits on your 1997 BMW Z3 are pretty "old-school" and straight forward. Fuse #46 (15 Amp), located in the Front Power Distribution Box at the left rear side of the engine compartment supplies battery voltage to the brake light switch via the VIOLET/GREEN wire going into the switch. When the bake pedal is depressed, the voltage leaves the brake lamp switch on the BLUE/RED wire and supplies power to all of the brake lamp bulbs.

The brake lamp circuits do branch off and go to several control modules. This is ONLY for module INPUT to tell the module that the brakes are being applied. These modules include:
> Transmission Control Module
> Cruise Control Module
> ABS Control Module
> Slip Control Module

The ONLY way that any of these modules could be affecting the operation of your brake lamps is if there is an internal short to ground in the module that is causing the brake lamp fuse to blow.

If NONE of your brake lamps are working, the most likely causes are:
> Fuse #46 open (blown)
> Defective brake lamp switch
> Bad ground connection at ground G400 (Left side of luggage compartment)
> All 3 of your brake lamp bulbs burned out.

Yes, the BLUE/RED wire could be broken as well, but I would check all the other things listed above first.

ABS RED LIGHT HAS COME ON WHY


The ABS light comes on when a problem is detected with an ABS wheel sensor or the ABS module. The dealer can scan the ABS module and tell you what the problem is.

Which fuse in the fuse box is the abs fuse as there's no label telling me


Have you check both fuse boxes?
The abs relay/fuse is in the fuse block under the hood in the engine compartment. It is located on the driver's side near the battery. It is labeled ABS. There is also an ABS/EVO solenoid.
Hope this helps and good luck. Please let me know if you have any trouble finding it.

Why does my bmw 1997 318i abs light stay on all


a multitude of potential problems. Probably a bad abs unit or control box $850.00 Could be a sensor at the wheel---dirty or just quit working.

Either way.....lots of money.

Have replaced ABS module on bmw 525 E39 and ABS now ok, but the ASC lamp will not go off on the dash and fault code 23 (incorrect coding) will not clear from system? Everyone told us the ABS ecu does not...


ABS/ASC module is faulty
CLASSIC ABS FAILURE SYMPTOMS:
- Most of the time, the problem is the ABS module or one of the 4 wheel speed sensors (& sometimes the brake pressure sensor)
- In my 2002 BMW E39 DSC, three orange (warning) cluster display lights lit, ABS, Brake, & DSC
- The 3 warning lights reset when the ignition is turned off, only to repeatedly reappear within minutes of normal driving
- The fault is often intermittent leading you to falsely believe you've resolved the problem (proper diagnosis is important)
- Sometimes the fault only appears when the engine is hot; other times only at speeds over 40 mph
- Carsoft may erroneously show a rear speed sensor failure; but just replacing the speed sensor may make no difference.
- All the work is in correct diagnosis of the problem; parts replacement is trivial (from 1 to six bolts in a few minutes)
- Hence, this BMW E39 ABS 3-warning light DIY will concentrate on understanding and diagnosis of the problem

Speedometer, RPM, ABS, and Brake light


It's not the fuse. You need to jump start the diagnostic cable. First you need a battery of 9v and short the + and - terminal to the diagnostic cable. Then you will see smoke. After that it should work fine.
