SOURCE: speedo and abs light on bmw 5 series

I've had the same problem twice on my 1999 528. The problem is your ABS module. (Bosch 5.7 to be exact.) The failure mode is temperature sensitive and shows up after driving. To test this, turn off the car, get a can of freeze spray and cool down the module. Inverting a can of compressed air used for computer cleaning works too. Give it a healthy freeze, then start up the car again. If the lights are out, then you know your problem. 
All sorts of things don't work when the module is bad. Speedo, windshield washers only give you one speed, fuel gauge drifts back and forth, cruise control,  check engine lights, airbag lights .... and so on, you get the picture, basically anything connected to the computer. My new (great) mechanic calls this the BMW christmas tree. 
You can either replace the module with a new one from the dealer, very expensive, or get it rebuilt. There are a number of rebuilders out there, so take your pick. I've used ModuleMaster in the past and they've been great. $300 and works like a charm. Google them to find their web site, and good luck.

Speedometer not working on ford escort 1999


speedo works off one of the front wheels depending on your country, the signal goes to the abs unit then out of the abs unit to the speedo. the speedo could be at fault. or the sensor but if the sensor is at fault the abs light would be on so first i would check the single wire from the abs unit, clean the connections, the signal is a pulse. the faster the pulse the faster the speedo goes..

On my dashboard the abs, handbrake and service light are constantly on will not go off.


Hi
You need to have a diagnostic scan carried out to read the relative fault code, which will give you an idea of what is needed. Clio common for split ABS ring on front driveshafts. Scan at a good local garage should be around £30- 40 ish

ABS Fault? Renault Megane


Hi Liz, I am in exacty the same position as you although I just had the new abs pump fitted and I still have the same problems??? I am going crazy with this, my garage's diagnostic machine won't commuicate with my car and my speedo is not working? My mechanic reckons the abs memory is stuck in a loop and that is why the lights ain't going out, but without a diagnostic I dont know, I guess I will have to take it to a dealership to be ripped off!!!!

Speedo sometimes failed to work


I had this exact problem on my old focus. Its nothing to worry about and its not expensive. Your car has a speed senser underneath the gearbox and a common fault on these cars is for the gearbox to slightly drip oil. When the oil drips it drips right on top of the senser and blocks the speed readings.
The good thing about this is your milage on your car wont go up when the speedo stops working, so when you come to sell it!!!!!!! you get my point.
to fix this problem it cost about £20 if you do it yourself.

Speedometer wont move


You probably have a broken speedometer cable. Was the needle wagging back and forth and making strange noises periodically before it quit working?

Speedo fault with a Renault megane coupe 1998


Check fuses because the one that controls ciggarette lighter can often blow and this can be a sympton of that,could be loose. Looks like a bad connection from one of the speed sensors which control the abs, do you get abs light stay on. Could be wiring under the bonnet,check all visible wiring too. Failing them it`ll have to be an auto electrician.
