    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...

    Good morning community I recently bought a 2003 325i for a steal of a price, off some kid who didn't know too much. He stated that it was having battery problems, draining after a couple days with a new battery, in other words the car was sitting for a couple months. Started the car up...

    Hello to you all. I have been learning from all of you over the years and have been able to keep my baby on the road thanks to all of your great input, experiences and sharing. However, this time I am having a problem that I can't seem to find anywhere, so I thought I would throw it over to...

    Hi all, After almost 220,000 miles and 10+ years of ownership my DSC module seems to have given up the ghost. This has been an intermittent issue for quite some time and now the DSC/ABS fails with both the DSC light and the yellow brake lights on permanently. The shop I am using claims the...

    Hi, I've got famous lights for a (longer) while now and I've been trying to find out what's wrong but I can't connect to the ABS/ASC module in pa soft 1.4.0. Usually the codes are red or yellow but mine are grey :/ I've tried disconnecting the abs module, replacing and reprogramming the module...

    Hi, I recently purchased a 2001 325ci. I love the car so far, but it has the ABS, Parking Brake, and Traction Control lights on. The digital MPH readout is also always wrong, but I think the regular speedometer reads close to correct. I did quite a bit of research and found that this is related...
