Any number of failures can cause the light to come on, the most common is the individual wheel speed sensors, u can have the dealer test the system and get a trouble code out of it that will lead them in the right direction to the faulty circuit or sensor.
As long as the light is on the system is disabled.

BMW 2001 X5 has intermittent ABS light illuminating. I have changed brakes and brake sensors. The service people are unable to tell me what the problem is via diagnostic computer. What should I be...


BMW MODELS AFFECTED: All with ABS

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.

Bmw 520i 1999 abs/asc lights on diagnostic


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

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.
