Piece of black tape. I believe you need a scanner to erase it. If you still have abs trouble, it will come back.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.

isn't there a way to use a wire from one of the pins, in the place where you put the reset tool, and clamp it to a ground and turn the car on (position 2), not start it,and after a few seconds it'll go away?.... that's what i heard

That is for the "service interval" light. It will not work on the "abs" light. And you're talking about a problem with the braking system. Important system! Really need to have it fixed!

ABS light is a common problem to show in e36
Replace the ABS relay, and it should fix it, had the same problem on mine, it would come on and stay on, and chances its not a fault
