Aloooha! I'm new to this BMW site and couldn't find any postings of anyone else having these indicator light problems.
I have a 2000 BMW 528i, and the yellow indicators lights (Brake, ABS, ASC-T)
have all come on. Another weird thing is the same time these lights came on the speedometer and the odometer are not working either. I just recently did an oil change and I reset the oil change lights, could I have done something wrong to trigger this?
I unhooked the battery for a couple minutes and then the indicator lights went away and the speedometer and odometer where working again. What is the issue? Help!!! Is it something I can fix myself?
When I started the car this morning everything was back to normal with no indicator lights on. But when I drove home from work, the same problem happen. Do you think I need to replace the ABS computer module? I read that it's typical for those to go out in the 2000 5 series. What do you think?
I realize I'm picking up this tread over a year later, but I'm having the same problem with the same car ABS and ASC Indicator lights go on etc... what resolved the problem? what was the problem? if you remember, please tell me. Thanks
HELP!!! I have a 2000 323i with ~142,000 miles. About three weeks ago, my transmission won't go in reverse. I took my car to a family shop, they said my reverse gear is wore out. So it cost me $2,300 to rebuild it.
I picked up the car and drove it the next morning. As I was waiting at traffic light, I felt like someone push me from the back, this would happened intermittently. Also, when I was cruising at approximately 30mph to 40mph, I felt the gear slipped off intermittently. So I took it back to the shop and they recommended to replace wiring system. But then I have another problem, gear 1, 2 and reverse won't work. The shop ran the diagnostic and they said it is my ABS system. I do see the ABS warning goes on and off sometimes. So they claim that when ABS warning is on, gear 1, 2 and reverse won't work.
Please HELP if you do have advice on how I can get this repair correctly. All reply are much appreciated!!
The OP's issues I believe is the DSC module needs to be rebuilt(Which is a VERY COMMON e38 and e39 issue!)
To BMWBumper: this is a 5 series section you will have better luck in the 3 series section(your's is an e46 chassis)
your car might be going into "limp home mode" where it locks in 3rd gear....when was that last time your batery was changed(Please start a new thead if you havent alredy in the proper section and awnser there)
