SOURCE: ABS and anti skid tracking control lights stay on in my BMW 523i

Unfortunately there are several possibilities that are common to causing the light to come on. I would suggest taking the car in to a dealer and having them read out the fault memory. Such possibilities are a failed speed sensor, a binding DSC/ACS actuator cable, or faulty DCS/ASC control unit. If you know how, you can disconnect the speed sensors, and check for voltage output across the the terminals inside the connector going to the speed sensor while rotating the wheel. A dealer should charge you about an 1hour fee to check out your system. Due to the cost of parts involved, I would recommend having it checked before just guessing.

SOURCE: reset the wheel sensors on BMW e46

If you took this in and had BMW do the work to fix it and it is not fixed why do you not return to BMW and get it fixed, If you have paid for a repair and the repair did not solve the problem have them refund your money.

SOURCE: abs brake light dsc on 2003 bmw 325i

many reasons for this. A bad relay can do it, or a wheel speed sensor can to. Also the relay may be at fault. You can have the codes checked for free at any Auto Zone and they will tell you what part is bad

SOURCE: BMW 2001 X5 has intermittent ABS light


FAULT: ABS warning light comes on intermittently. Normal troubleshooting procedures find no defect.

Possible Cause: If car has recently had two new tires, or snow tires put on. Sometimes when the car is driven over 50 MPH.

Solution: Check all four tires on the car, make sure they are the same brand, style, and size. Check if
any of the new tires have substantially more tread than the rest. These differences may cause enough
variance in rolling diameters to confuse the ABS control unit, which in turn, gives a false signal to the ABS
warning light.

If that is not the issue, it is most likely the ABS control module failing.

SOURCE: bmw 530d how to change fuel filter

You do not need to bleed it it just unscrews as it is a spin on type whichh is on the R/H side of the engine near the Wing and easy to see as you will also see the inlet fuel lines to it.
Just unscrew it slowly then carefully lift it out, not dropping any fuel. You do not need to fill the new Filter up with Fuel, just oil the outer large ring rubber gasket and the inner little one before placing the new one on. Just switch on the ignition to prime it for a few seconds and then start the car. It should stall on the 1st go or 2 but then will be ok. Just check for leaks and job done!!

99 bmw 540i 6spd. Tach and speedo quit. Works sometimes. Sometimes not. Affects numerous things. Throttle, a/c blows warm, DSC light, temp gauge etc. You think its speed sensor or abs module?

most likely speed sensor. the fronts are the same, and the back 2 are the same. but the fronts are not the same as the back. I believe it's the right front for the above problem.

I have a 2005 BMW x5 as soon I start driving, my abs light, my brake light and my 4 by 4 light are on and also the dsc is not active

Hi This sounds like a DSC fault more than anything, have you any fault codes? have you fitted anything new to your vehicle recently that is made by someone other than BMW?, you could try unplugging the DSC unit and having a look at the plug for corrosion on the contacts, ( this is the same as ABS module located on left hand side near head light on normal car under bonnet/hood should be same for yours) also you can have a look at the throttle body connector for same thing corrosion on the contacts, just clean and see how that goes, but check to see if you have error codes in the ECU/ECM just something for you to look at please contact me for anything else...good luck

I have a 530d BMW with 191,020Km 2005 model on the clock and is regulary serviced at an approved BMW garage. Very nice and stable vehicle to drive but now the computer keeps reading errors Tyre pucture,...

This I believe on your description seems like it could be a sensor problem, like maybe the 02 sensor that is part of your emissions (Cadillac converter) I am disappointed that BMW did not see this come up on there codes, as it would of if they put it on computer. The fact that cut off, would have nothing to do with the breaks. And believe it or not, sometimes the sensor bad, will cause the other stuff mentioned to come on, and breaks could of been fine. Hope this helps,Mike.

I have bmw 530d and abs asc and other 1 its on after 2 miles i been on service and mecanic sed presure sensor interference,i change presure sensor and delithed all cods but its on agan.

Hi.The problem of your car sounds like a faulty ABS/ASC control unit. It is the common problem of this model cause the Control Unit is too close to exhaust manifold resulting to dammage internal parts of ABS/ASC control unit. But although this is the common problem of your car, I still suggesting you to re-hook up diagnostic tools and double check the condition of wiring harness, plug connections and power supply of related fault codes you will retrieved and if the problem still existing then I recommend you to replace the ABS/ASC Control unit and do Coding for new control unit.
I hope this tip will help you to solve your problem.

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
- 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

ABS and ASC warning lights stay on 2000 530d

Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the car

Yellow DSC and Brake light on... recently changed brake pads

Abs and dsc are related and with the light on these won't work. It is possible that you need to go back to where the work was done to look this over.
