SOURCE: BRAKE WARNING LIGHT

I dunno if this will work on your BMW, but on my BMW Z3 and M3, it was....

Turn the ignition key to position 2, but do NOT start the car. Wait for about 45 seconds and the brake warning message will be reset.

If it doesn't reset, then the brake sensor was damage. You will need to replace the brake sensor. It sounds like you replace the brake right after you saw the warning, so the brake sensor should be okay.

SOURCE: asc light comes on and engine cuts out

When your ASC light is on this is to let you know your Automatic Stability Control system is switched off press the ASC button Till light is off /ASC is on this works with your rev limiter and should stabilized your idle. If the problem persists have your throttle control unit checked as thi can trigger the ASC light as well and may also activate the ABS light if not fixed

Warning lights what do they mean, a triangle with a line in the middle


This is the Traction Control Warning light. Traction control is device added to the engine/gearbox sytem, and is designed to help minimise wheel spins when moving away, particularly on a slippery surface. When the system detects the wheels starting to slip and Traction control starts to cut in this warning light shows.

Traction control cannot do much to help in severe ice or snow though, so you can expect to see this light showing or flashing if the conditions are extreme.

If this light shows when the conditions are not extreme, stopping and restarting the engine will often reset it.

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.


If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

My 1998 BMW traction control warning light is coming on regularly


Yes definitely check the tread on your tires, they are slipping around corners that's why the traction control comes on. It could like you said be low tire pressure but they would have to be pretty low and you would notice if they were that low. The traction control is sensitive in the bmw's that's what makes them great.

How do i shut off the traction control in my 2001 BMW 3-series coupe when there is no switch on the dash?


To turn off the traction control, you need to press and hold the traction control button. Normally this is located on the centre console above the gearstick and you should have one of the following;

ASC or ASC +T
DSC
finally a button with an exclamation inside a triangle with an arrow on the outside in a clockwise direction. You'll have one of these 4 buttons.

Simply pressing it once will partially turn it off - (depending if its dsc, if not dsc but asc then the system will be turned off)

If you press and hold however, the system will be fully turned off and a warning light will appear on the dash. Again this all depends on the system you have and if you need to press and hold until the light comes on the instrument cluster,or just to press once!

Hope this helps!
