The ABS and traction control lights are continusouly on, on my 95 325is. Being new to BMWs I wasnt sure what exactly these are telling me, and was hoping for some advice before taking it to a mechanic. Also there is a contionous squeaking in the front left wheel well. I was told might be a stablizer pin, whatever that is. Anyone know what I should do or what is wrong? KC

As for the ASC, there is a malfunction with it and you need to have it checked out. It could be a number of things.

the ASC light is most likely in conjuction witht he ABS light because its not properly able to monitor wheel spin to kick the ASC in so it maybe a ABS sensor problem.

I have a button to turn my ASC on and off. When I turn it off, the light stays on...I would have it checked out to make sure it is working properly. I can't imagine driving my bimmer in bad weather (snow) without it!

On my 94 325 the Brake Light Circuit warning was showing up on the Multi-information Display. In the owners manuel it says it could be a bulb, fuse or circuit defective. What I found out is there is a brake pad wear sensor that tripped the warning. I need new brake pads, thats all. Sensors are located on left front and right rear. I've had this car only a week so I'am no expert by any means with BMW's. But maybe this might help you out. Good Luck
