Question about BMW 318

2 Answers

Reset the wheel sensors on BMW e46 because my ABS/ACS/handbrake light comes on together and doesnt go out even when i'm driving. I recently took it to BMW to get a diagnosis done on it. It came back saying I need a wheel speed sensor. Got that fitted, but the lights are still on. How do i fix this? Please help. regards Darren Walsh

If you took this in and had BMW do the work to fix it and it is not fixed why do you not return to BMW and get it fixed, If you have paid for a repair and the repair did not solve the problem have them refund your money.

Replaced the disc, pads and wheel bearings on the front. Now ABS and handbrake lights are on as well as when I drive the D light flickers


Check the speed sensors on the bearing hubs you replaced. Did you damage the wire harness when you changed out the hubs. Did you reset the abs system. You got some work to do & if you don't have the equipment to do it, bring it to a mechanic who does. This may lead you back to the dealer, sorry. Several abs systems are specific to a dealer.

Hi guys my abs, esp, handbrake and stop lights have just come on. My diagnostic tool reads P0500 and vehicle speed sensor "A". On a renault megane 225. What is the meaning of this. Is the code referri


The ABS (anti lock braking system) requires wheel speed sensors to operate. When one of the wheel speed sensors fails you will get an ABS warning light appear and it will not disappear until you have fixed the problem - in this case replaced the faulty sensor(s).

It is not a DIY job so do not attempt to do it yourself when you do not know what you are doing.

Dsc warning light on , bmw e46


Dynamic Stability Control....a derivitave of ABS / Traction control. The control unit that monitors the dynamics will most likely be sensing a difference in the measured wheel speeds. Possibly defective ABS sensor, wiring, ABS exciter ring, ABS module or steering angle sensor. Can also be triggered by wheel spin.
Have a diagnostic scan done ( cost £30 - £50 approx at good local garage) to read the fault codes first. If you get a fault code relating to "ABS module pressure sensor" the module requires replacement (common issue). Used to be a £1400 job, but repair kit now available from dealer for £180 ish and 2 hours to fit.

Hi, x 2 warning lights came on tonight on my 2001 bmw 3 series, e46.. Dynamic stability control light remains on and also a yellow (!) where the handbrake light is. Car test due tomorrow, typical


These lights indicate you have an ABS fault as the DSC needs to see a signal from the wheel speed sensors, One of the wheel speed sensors will have failed, find someone with a scanner to determine which one, then replace faulty sensor and reset light

On each wheel, there is a sensor with some wires attached to it just behind the wheel assembly. Odds are one of the wires is worn out from the elements as they're all exposed.

Please don't just pull the bulb because a faulty abs system can cause serious injury

Warning lights on dashboard


Had a similar problem on older BMW. The ABS/ASC sensor in the wheel hub is apperntly prone to this if something has been changed like brake, shocks etc or got some dirt in it. The amber light could indicate a loose wire connection on the brake system or perhaps a damaged elec cable. can only be reset with diagnostic computer or special tool.

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

ABS and anti skid tracking control lights stay on in my BMW 523i


Unfortunately there are several possibilities that are common to causing the light to come on. I would suggest taking the car in to a dealer and having them read out the fault memory. Such possibilities are a failed speed sensor, a binding DSC/ACS actuator cable, or faulty DCS/ASC control unit. If you know how, you can disconnect the speed sensors, and check for voltage output across the the terminals inside the connector going to the speed sensor while rotating the wheel. A dealer should charge you about an 1hour fee to check out your system. Due to the cost of parts involved, I would recommend having it checked before just guessing.
