Ok, life goes on..
Today I jacked up my ride using my certified BMW car jack on each corner of my bim to take my wheels off one at a time to wax them and also to check out the rotors and pads to make sure everything's ..But I think it caused a fault in one of my sensors 'cause when I was finished I started her up and the ABS sensor light came on and stayed on..
I did a little research and came across this post on another forum..
I recently has the same problem. It is the ABS sensor probalbly on one
of the front wheels. Eventually what will happen is that the light will
stay on every time you will turn ignition on. ABS stops working in that
case. While reading this digest several months ago, someone suggested to
clean the sensor, however, it is ridiculous and stupid suggestion. IT
WILL NOT HELP, whoever gave that suggestion had no idea of what he/she
was talking about. The only way is to replace the sensor, the sensor for
the front wheel cost $95, or at least that is how much I paid for it on
You can test the sensor by
disconecting it from connector and attaching ohmmeter to it, if the
resistance is infinite, that means that the sensor is bad and needs
replacement. The proccess of replacement takes about 15 minutes. You can
find more material on replacing the sensor from Chiltons Book.
Defective front wheel sensors is a very common problem in BMWs.
I'm calling the dealer on Monday and will post up!!
