BMW E39 ABS Malfunction is becoming more common as these vehicles age.
If you own a 5-Series between 1996 and 2003 you may well see these symbols appear on you dash during your ownership.
These symbols indicate that your vehicle’s ABS and Traction Control system has shut down due to a fault.
So what do we do?
We plug our BMW diagnostic equipment into your vehicle, allowing us to diagnose the fault, usually the fault can be one of two things.
- Internal ABS control unit failure.
- ABS wheel sensor.
If the fault transpires to be a control unit that is faulty (pictured above).
We remove and replace the ABS control unit.
Code the new unit to the vehicle.
Read and clear all stored vehicle fault codes.
