Your calipers are seizing up, have them rebuilt or chnaged. Jack car up and see if you can spin the tires to test. They may turn when cold but seize up after heating up.

Abs light is on . brakes work just fine and the fluid is full

Hello, lets test that BMW M5 ABS braking system, OK. First, drive down a street with no traffic. Speed up to 30 to 40 MPH. Then slam on your brakes hard, if the brake petal is pulsating and there a noise like clunk,clunk,clunk,clunk noise. Your BMW ABS is working. If not, then the BMW ABS isn't working.

ABS system and what it does to your BMW. All it amount to is it doesn't lock up the braking system. It just applied the brake and release in micro seconds. This keep the vehicle from sliding side ways on wet roads, snowy roads, icy roads or even on dry roads. In other words, it keeps the front of the BMW in a straight line.

If your BMW ABS isn't do this, you'll need to have the ABS braking system serviced. GB...stewbison

That's your anti lock brake modulator mis functioning. You need a BMW dealer or a competent shop to look at it. It could be a simple as a defective wheel sensor to the control module.

Rear brakes on my BMW Z3 2001 have locked

It sounds like you drove it in the rain and parked for a while. I doubt you have damaged anything but why be so bold. Remove the rear wheels and hubs so you can inspect the brakes.

Your brakes have seized. Remove the wheels and inspect. A firm blow with a rubber mallet to the calliper or a little penetrating oil may free them up, but not adviseable to drive until looked at after freeing up.

Transmission program light

Sounds like the transmission tourgue converter lock up is engageing.....I solved this for a buddy of mine However you are going to need the assistance of a computer and the BMW interface device. (you can buy on E-Bay if you plan on keeping a BMW around then it's a good investment) using this device and your laptop you need to clear the code that is being stored in the computer. actually you should read the code first. If you wish to try it the "Poor man's way take off the battery Neg lead for 10-15 min then put back on and see if your error comes back. If so then go and get the code reader or go to someone who has one to read the code.....

Good Luck
