ABS light always on!

My ABS light is always on and I am guessing abs doesn't work. How can I fix this problem? can I do it myself or would I have to sent it in to the dealer..

hey there! how are you liking the rims? It's probably a dying ABS wheel sensor. You'll need to have the car scanned to find out which fault has been thrown. I recommend Cross Avenue in Oakville, or use Charlie @ Bimmersport in Mississauga. Apparently everyone on the forum uses him.

Wheel sensor is probably gone as 98Dinan3 said.
If you noticed your ABS was not kicking in, THEN the light was coming on.. then the ABS pump is gone.

Also a very VERY slim chance the ABS computer has problems, though I've never ever heard of an ABS computer needing replacing...
