Post subject: Dashboard, lights.....Action

Here it goes....

Last week I was working on the front suspension, had the front end up for 2 days, before I put the car down I swapped the tires front to rear, etc. I start the car and the ABS/ACS lights are on now...

Btw its a E39 540i with 189k miles/ auto, pre-vanos. I did the first thing that came to mind...searched online, most common culprit is the ABS module.

I am just curious if anybody here had to deal with the issue and what they did to resolve it.

Also if anybody has one of those fancy scanner tools that maybe can narrow it down to if perhaps its a wheel sensor gone wild.

Thanks

try the simple things first. Make sure your battery is good to go. Sometimes when voltage drops low enough after sitting the modules will lose communication with each other especially this steering angle sensor and you will have to reset it by driving steering wheel lock to lock a couple times. If that doesn't work then tell us which codes you find.

Driving around a bit, how many miles is that, I put at least 80 so far and both lights are still on.

what were you doing on the front suspension? You might have left wheel speed sensor off or unplug something else

I replaced the front struts, the only thing I don't have connected is the front break pad sensor.

Over the weekend I had some time to search around the car and found the culprit, a broken wheel sensor wire, once i spliced it back together dash lights are gone. Thanks to all that had responded swiftly.
