I am new to BMW and to this forum. I have a 1997 BMW 528i has 110,000 miles on it. It runs perfectly, the only drawback was I recently had to replace the alternator and battery. The day after these were replaced, I drove it home and all was well. Now, the ASC light has turned on and will not go off. I am not familiar with this engine, but am willing to learn. I have read some threads saying that a broken cable could be the culprit, can anyone else shed some light on this situation? I am willing to try the repairs myself if it is nothing too invasive.
First double check all the wiring for the battery and alternator and your ground connections. Then I would check all your fuses to make sure they havent blown. After that, if all the connections and fuses look good, I would replace your ASC relay in the fuse box. Mine is orange and says "ASC" in white lettering on it. Yours may be different. When my ABS light was on for a bit, replacing the relay fixed it. They do wear out eventually.
So, the fuses are all fine, light is still on. I've read some stuff about cleaning the speed sensors or some sensor in the wheel well, any thoughts? Gas mileage is ok, took a trip this weekend and its still giving me what I had pre light
