Hi,
I've heard of problems being caused with the ABS on BMWs because of battery problems. Sounds daft I know but it seems that unless the battery is 100% there can be many odd electrical gremlins. Easier to check than having to replace parts of the ABS kit.
Good luck.
Stan

SOURCE: how do i take out air from bmw r 1150rt abs brake?.

Hi, the procedure for bleeding the brake lines on this motorcycle are really beyond the scope of the home mechanic, it involves removing the tank to gain access to the abs module, and the process is very involved and must be done in a very strict order. I would suggest that you entrust this to your local BMW dealership.

SOURCE: abs fault on 2004 r1150rt

I would take it in to get the ABS system serviced - you may have introduced air into the hydraulics or moved the ABS sensor out of position. If oyu have the power-assist brakes, you will notice that there isn't any - assist, that is.

SOURCE: anti lock brake lights flashing simultaneously

I would check the brake pads first to see if they are worn badly, spent a lot time once learning that will cause ABS lights to flash!
Grounding the middle pin on the ABS diagnostic plug , turn on the ignition and mash both brakes to see if the bulb checker light goes out! Very important, left out of procedure on IBMWR, if the red bulb checker light doesn't go out you have a blown tail light or stop light bulb and the ABS won't reset!
Or you have a bad bulb checker module underneath the seat. If the red light goes out then the ABS lights should go to flashing then push the ABS reset button and hold for slow count of 10 or so. Release and try it. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: bmw 75s. the battery light comes on very faintly

Sounds like one of two things(assuming your batery is healthy), regulator is on its way out or/and check the supply cable going into/out of the unit, also check the earth lead. Best way to check is using a multimeter, check voltage on idle should be between 13.5 &14.5 v, turn on lights it will drop momentarily before rising again. Rev the engine and voltage should start to rise again, if not regulator is suspect.good luck

2003 v star 1100 brake light running light problem


Here is your solution. The assembly you replaced likely used a double contact bulb, like an 1157.(very common brake light bulb) and the after market you got is only a single contact. If you look at an 1157, you will notice 2 filaments inside. One for full time on, and 1 for bright side switched(brake). If your new light only has one contact, then it is either going to be light full time on, or switched light. The bulb might not be compatible with your bike. Hope this helps.

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
