It could be a faulty sensor on a wheel assembly, the dealership would be able to scan the abs system and give you a fault code, a local auto parts store may well be able to do the same.
I'm sorry for asking, but did you check the fluid level and bleed the brakes? just a thought
hope this helps.

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

I have a 2005 BMW x5 as soon I start driving, my abs light, my brake light and my 4 by 4 light are on and also the dsc is not active


Hi This sounds like a DSC fault more than anything, have you any fault codes? have you fitted anything new to your vehicle recently that is made by someone other than BMW?, you could try unplugging the DSC unit and having a look at the plug for corrosion on the contacts, ( this is the same as ABS module located on left hand side near head light on normal car under bonnet/hood should be same for yours) also you can have a look at the throttle body connector for same thing corrosion on the contacts, just clean and see how that goes, but check to see if you have error codes in the ECU/ECM just something for you to look at please contact me for anything else...good luck

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.

BMW x5 DSC indicator lamp stay on and no power.


When the DSC Dynamic Stability Control light is ON your traction control is OFF. It will sometimes trigger the ABS light and the Rev Limiter it is an engine protection FAIL SAFE mode.
Check your brake switch on the brake pedal, this sounds like the problem wen replaced it will reset the Rev limiter, if the ABS light comes Check the wheel sensors

Just had the battery replaced. The 2001 BMW X5 brake and abs lights are on. Is this a Battery problem, fuse or what?


This sounds like a low-brake-fluid-pressure symptom. Check brake fluid. Next check for leaks.

More info?, let me know...

ABS light come on intermitenly on my S10 Chevy


The ABS and parking brake lights kept coming on in my boyfriends 2001 Chevy s10. We took it to the Chevy dealer and they ran a diagnostic on it determining that the ABS module was shot (common problem for them mechanic said). The cost to have it fixed at the dealer was about $750. I found a place in Moscow Idaho that rebuilt the module for $130!!!! YAHOOO! You have to pay about $35 in shipping costs but they returned it to us in 3 days.I was able to remove the module myself and didn't need to mess with the brake lines/fluid--it was simple and took about 10 minutes to remove it. The site steps you through removal/installation if I can do this so can you! Go to www.modulemaster.com to determine if you have an ABS module that they can rebuild. It's guaranteed for 5 years and if we had the dealer replace it they would only guarantee it for 1 year. So go to the module master and save some cash!!!!
