Help! ABS light on

Hi guys,

I left my 335 in an open car space for a month without driving while I was on holidays ( in between moving houses, so had to park it outside ), came back to start my car today and the yellow ABS warning light is on, went for a drive, turned car on/off and still there, there were no problems before I left, any ideas? Also parking sensor seems a bit off, its going off even while im stopped at red lights (bit too sensitive).

Similar for my case, mind 3 yellow lights comes together, ABS, DTC, Run-flat.

Go back to BMW HK and they found out it was senor error, they replaced the speed sensor on each wheel and now is ok, luck the car still has warranty.....

But make sure your warning light is red or yellow........if red.........mostly your ABS pump and ABS/DTC computer gone.........

I would suggest you go back to bmw hk to do a computer check first.......their charge is very reasonable........

This is likely due to ABS module failure which is a well known problem with our E90s. Go back to BMWHK for it to be checked. Is your car still under warranty? It may cost up to $30,000 to fix, but let them know that you are well aware of this problem from our forum and they will likely reimburse up to 80% of the costs depending on your car's mileage.

Check out some former posts in this forum for more information.
