2000 528i Computer Help

I am looking for help with my car. My computer does not work anymore and I want to fix it but I do not know exactly what I am looking for, so if it possible if someone could tell me what part I need that would be greatly appreciated. My traction control does not work(which makes it fun in the snow but bad for my car), the ABS light is on as well as the Check Engine light is on. I want to make my car run great again. Thanks for the help.

No I haven't but I don't think that it will have to do with the fuse box. I have had a diagnostic test done but I don't have the paperwork anymore, so I know that the computer is the problem.

If the problem with the computer then, you can only replce it. I dont think it is repairable. My advise, go for used one & save your money.

Do you know where it is located?

Well, I actually figured out that its not a computer. My traction control does actually work. But I went and got the error codes read at auto parts it came up with three codes: P1421, P1423, and P0500.
