Hi just read your posting.Unfortunately in my manual it says that error 104 is Comms. Error Time-out.This means that there is an error in the communications between the Display module and the Motor controller. Now to rectify this fault the manual says to 1st change the Display module, and if this doesn't rectify the fault change the Motor controller. And lastly if you have changed both these parts and it still faults the manual then says change the Rotor Position Sensor.There is no way to check which part is actually causing the fault and the recommended way to rectify this fault is to change parts until it works correctly.I am sorry for the bad news but on this fault you might have to obtain the service of a technician.Unless there is a place you could send the motor controller and display board and get them checked out for faults.I am in Australia and there are a few places here that do this service but maybe you could ring your local Fisher and Paykel agent and see if they know of anybody that could help you in your area.Please reply for further help and to tell us how you got on.

90 104 on bmw x5 4.4i sport

90 is an 'Intermittent System Down' code, meaning the system isn't always staying online.

104 should be a right-rear (passenger) wheel speed sensor failure. If a sensor fails the system shuts itself down, so this is likely what's causing the first code.

How did you test your ABS sensors? They normally should be checked for resistance to be within specifications and they also need to have the waveform checked on a graphing meter or have one person check the sensor signals with an appropriate scan tool while another person is driving.

Also check the tone ring (notched ring the sensor reads) for broken/missing teeth and check the wheel bearing for play, as both of these can disrupt the readings, even if the sensor itself is good.

Hope this was helpful to you.
