Warning light brake light and abs light comes on BMW x5


Could be low brake fluid, or mismatched tires, or broken ABS sensor. Did you do any work on brakes or wheels lately? If so probably the ABS sensor.

ABS warning light comes on 1994 E36 318i BMW


Suggest you go to some of the BMW forum sites for more detailed responses. This could be speed sensors located at the wheel hub area or an ABS module. The wires run up near and along where the brake pad sensor wires are located. Sensors aren't too hard to change and aren't too costly, the module, on the other hand is expensive.

Abs brake warning light, bmw x5 2004


i would guess the brake warning light is the sensor telling you your pads are low. check the brake fluid and see what level it is, no need to add oil unless it is almost empty but then you would be hearing a squeek grinding noise from brakes. those only cost a few (i think $5) to replace when you do your brakes. but this is just a guess please make sure you have breaks before driving

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.

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
CLASSIC ABS FAILURE SYMPTOMS:
- 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
