Sounds normal, dampy spark plug wires. drive it a long time and hope the water dissapears. Washing the engine with a high-pressure hose is n ever a good idea.

SOURCE: bmw 316 ABS light stays on

Your ABS systems use a combination of electronic and hydraulic systems to modulate the brakes individually to prevent them from locking up. Antilock systems consist of wheel speed sensors, a hydraulic control unit (HCU), and an electronic control unit (ECU). Because of how complex the system is your computer does a self-test. If the check is successful, the ANTILOCK and BRAKE lights will go out within a few seconds. If one or more of the component of the ABS system fails to pass one or both lights will remain lit, the system will shut down and set a code. The code itself does not tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on.

Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

High possibility the maf sensor needs dervicing or replace. you can clea it yourself with electrical spray cleaner CRC brand. It is located inside the intake duct in a metal section. Do not brush or rub to clean. Use the spray to thoroughly wash off the sensor, It is sensitive and expensive to replace so be nice to it.
The spray will dry fast so don't use compressed air and don't physically touch the unit. Good Luck, Ned

SOURCE: i have a bmw 316

might be drain plug washer or could be a leak from higher up the engine. get it cleaned off using some gunk remover and low pressure hose then watch for easier indication of actual leak.

BMW 316 is jerking after engine washed


Was it a full steam clean? Sounds like you have water/condensation in an electrical plug? Its going to be a matter of, drying out all connections and coat with white electrical grease, can use a hair dryer to get warm air over the contacts, could be in the ECU, might have to undo case??? I have put ECU's in a warm area to dry out.
