    Hey everyone! I have a 2003 325xi I just purchased, its a great running rig! Except the ABS, DSC, BRAKE lights and airbag light is on. Before I bought the car it was sitting with a dead battery, I since bought a new battery for it and it starts up and drives fine! Except the lights have yet to...

    Hey guys, new to the forum. I've got a 01 325i with trifecta brake abs and brake lights on. After 30min of driving the abs system starts acting up, grabbing and pulsing. I've done brakes and rotors l the way around and replaced both front wheel speed sensors. Recently took it to the shop abs...

    Hello all, recently I purchased a K+DCAN cable so I can bleed my ABS using INPA, I’ve installed everything correctly multiple times and everything seems to be working until I click on my ABS modules under chassis, or even any other option, I keep getting this error Group file : D ABSKWP...

    Hi, I have a 2002 330ci Auto Convertible with the trifecta lights. I've plugged into INPA, read codes from engine and transmission, but i am unable to read the DSC, just an error code everytime. Codes from Engine after clearing then going for drive: 8 luftmassenmesser 118 TPS-MAF...

    For some reason, don’t know what exactly, but the abs and traction control light stays on (325ci). I replaced the brake fluid and made sure that’s all good, but some times the lights go away, very rarely tho. It seems that the only time it’s ever been off is when it’s rained, probably...

    I have an 01 m3, my rear brakes are intermittently locking along with DSC pressure sensors 1 & 2 codes. Did some research and its seems like the code dosnt cause the problem im having. What could be causing them to stick if it isnt the pressure sensors? I attached a pic of my brake circuit...

    I've tried a lot of things, hammering a bigger hex into the hole, spraying a looooot of WD40 and waiting some hours, using an extractor kit, various pliers, cutting off the sensor top with a dremel to get more room, etc.. But it still won't budge, it seems impossible. Here is a picture: I'm...

    I've read a lot of posts here about this issue possibly being as simple as a corroded connection, but I am curious as to what I should do to troubleshoot it, if at all. I am using Inpa and I got a lot of codes, for basically all of the sensors, but I cleared the codes, went out for a drive and...

    Cleared all the codes using OBD fusion and a generic ELM327 scanner. My engine light is gone but my ABS and brake system lights are still on? I checked for new codes and I only had one for the coolant sensor.

    Today driving my 2000 323i the ABS locked up while coming to a slow stop. Road was completely smooth and dry, and I braked slow. No idea why it locked up but the traction control light started flashing like crazy and now DSC wont turn back on. I just changed my control arm bushings the other...

    Hello everyone, I’ve just purchased an e46 325Ci. The car has 111k miles on it and has been decently well maintained. The car has 1 issue with pretty aggressive shaking under acceleration that feels like it’s coming from the front left drivers side, almost if something is slapping around in...

    Hello I have a 2005 320i and the dashboard is a bit of a christmas tree. The DSC light is constantly showing yellow, the ABS light is also constantly yellow. When standing still with the engine running and the handbrake engaged the handbrake light is red as it should be, disengaging it makes it...

    Hey I have a 2004 facelift 320d touring. I was driving it for about 1 hours, when I heard a "beep" sound, and the DSC and handbrake lights were yellow. That day those lights were still there. The next day those disappeared for about 30 minutes of driving, then came out again. I bought an OBD...

    (Auto) 2004 325i M54 miles I've made multiple discussions on now three different forums on the same issue. This is my most updated one thus far. Something is wrong with my ABS, and crankshaft sensor (brand new VDO). THE INCIDENT: Here's how this incident happened. I was in a target parking...

    Hey everyone, I have a 99 328i that’s throwing abs/traction lights at all times. Problem started intermittently and then turned into them being on as soon as i start the car every time. I put aftermarket wheel speed sensors in which just caused the brake light to come on as well, decided to...

    Hi I'm new to the forum but have worked on "Foreign" cars since 1970. Recently acquired a nice 03 325i that needed a fuel pump, filter and starter to get it running. Former owner says the speedometer worked before it died and sat for several months. Here's what does not work on the cluster...

    I recently put in a new battery but now a new problem has come up. The abs, traction & red brake lights stay on when i start the engine & drive. I drove around for 20 minutes to see if it goes away & nothing. Any help would be appreciated. 2002 330ci

    Here is my solution to the DSC/ABS/brake warning light issue. It began with the DSC/ABS/brake warning lights suddenly turning on, along with the speedometer and mileage counter not working. And the ABS rattle in the brake pedal would come on at low speeds. After doing some online research...
