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.

Brake and abs light on,came on when a line burst,abs has been unplugged for three years,that light i can live with,the service brake system flashing on dash,is a pain,2003 2wd,silverada

You need to put a scanner on the ecm/computer for the truck and reset or delete the code in the computer. This is all assuming the broken line has been fixed and the lines bleed. The abs light is for the brake system and there is a valve in the line that when the line breaks it shuts off the line in the front or rear of the truck that has a break in it. You need to be sure the valve is shifted to the center position again and this will usually happen when you bleed the fluid after fixing the line or you will need to replace the valve in the brake line. Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 r1150rt bmw motor bike .. The anti lock brakes do not work to their full potential. Press ******* the brakes and the brake lights flash till you shut her down and turn it back on

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.

How to reset abs light on crv 2003

The ABS system means the Antilock Brake System. If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.

Speedometer not working

Make sure the differential and auto box are not short of fluids. Many ABS systems take a sensor reading on the differential. If there is evidence that the pinion oil seal has been leaking (diff wet with oil and permanent oil drip at bottom) then it is very likely that the diff is in need of replenishment. The heavy shifts are probably unrelated and are due to low transmission fluid: should be able to refill via the gear fluid dip stick tube

My BMW 1150RT battery light came on. I replaced

This looks like a regulator or alternator issue. If you have access to a volt meter start the bike and check the voltage going to the battery. Needs to be 13.5 or 14 volts. If not time to take the Beemer to the shop.
