ABS Problem



Wife is going to the gym
Comes running saying the all the lights are on in the car
WTF
It appear the brake, abs ,ACS lights are on
So the wife takes the truck to the gym

Brake fluid level is fine

The book say the ABS , CBC , DSC system has failed
Has this happen to anyone else?
The car is out of warrenty
IN Cobourg, I do not believe there is anyone who works on BMW, the close shop that I know of is Durham BMW
I guess I have phone the sealer tomorrow

Before you do call anyone, check the battery may be the battery is dying, if that is not true then call RMP motors instead of the stealership.

Why would it be the battery?

Would love to go to RPM but it is about 200 km from where I am.

I've got this problem on the X5. Lights come on after a lot of rain. They disappear when things dry up. Wheel sensors are probably due for replacement.

Sounds like a dirty wheel sensor is all, nothing to panic about.
Take the 200km drive out to an independant shop when you have a chance to get it all fixed up. Save yourself the money, and the hassle of dealing with the stealer.

I have an e46 99 with the same problem it happens after it rains, sometimes it just happens even if it doesnt rain always goes away after a few km of driving I would say its nothing to worry about just a picky sensor
