My 1997 E39 535 is doing the same buddy, have been told by a member on here that my module could be dead?

Hope it's not that and it's just a simple fix (yea right!!!). Hope you have more luck, keep us updated.

get a scan done to see if any codes are present, could be just a wheel speed sensor gone bad.
