    brake lights on and abs on, what could be the problem?

  • mutluakin Feb 15, 2009

    I have BMW 528i and same problem. In addition today service engine lights on. The repairmen told the service engine lights due to speedometer however, for other lights and problems we are still trying to find a solution. BMW dealer put the car in the machine and tolda us the problem is (ABS+break lights+tracking DSC lights on and speedometer stop working) ABS modulator.
    We are not sure what the problem is. Shoudl we trust what the dealer told us?

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.

Assalamualykum.

Bro I had the same problem and the car is under repair now.

Check three points. 1) FUSES 2) ABS MUDULATOR 3) SPEED SENSOR

In most case it is the ABS MODULATOR, due to heating.

BMW X3 speedometer not working. code p0500 , p0503


code p 0500 and 503 both refer to the vehicle speed sensor(VSS)---circuit malfunction or intermittent/ errattic high input====causes wiring-=--VSS---ECM--wiring poor connection--other connected system---instrument panel---VSS---communication control module
to have the abs light on I would be checking the communication control module or the ECM

Why are abs, oil, brake lights coming on, speedometer stops working, ac stopped cooling?


That's still under warranty, is it not? Take it to the dealer - let the manufacturer pay for the fix.

Abs light on dash, brake lite on dash, speedometer not working, jumping in and out of overdrive.


You have multiple problems. Make sure the brake fluid is at the proper level. Most of the time when I see this and the fluid is correct with no other mechanical issues it turns out there is a short due to an after market alarm that was installed incorrectly. Make sure you don't have a caliper sticking on one of the wheels which will cause the ABS and Brake Lights to come on. You'll also want to make sure your emergency brake isn't stuck. The ABS module malfunctioning would explain the ABS light and the Brake Light but not the speedometer issue. I have given you a lot of things to check because you need to be sure those are all working correctly. Because you added the Speedometer issue this is most likely going to be a short somewhere in the circuit or a possible issue with the ECM. It is possible a faulty ABS module could cause this, before you go get a new one though, try locating one in a local Junk yard and switch it out. If the lights go out you know that is the problem and you can go get a new one, I don't recommend using junk yard ABS parts for anything other than testing. With those lights on you can go to Auto Zone or Advance auto and ask them to connect the code reader to the vehicle and get a better idea of where you need to look.
