DSC Brake ABS Lights are On-Same old story

I have a 2000 528i that these lights have come on recently, with the speedometer intermitently stops working. We replaced both rear wheel sensors: nothing. I took it in to a local garage who does work on foreign models and they thought $1000 worth of work "might" fix it - by replacing the control unit. Please, just tell me what I should do and how this can be fixed. If they can't guarantee that it will work, I certainly am not going to invest that kind of cash. Thank you so much for your advice.

Control unit failure is very common on this year and model. If you search the forums you will find many posts on this.

I'm having this problem also and am wondering if having the module repaired requires it to be programed by the dealer and if so what was that cost. Thanks
