There are two relays assciated with the ABS. Both are in the fuse box on drivers side. One is grey and one is red, they have ABS printed on top.

The best thing to do if you have an ABS problem is to take the car to an indy mechanic and have them read the error code. There are many different sensors that can fail. The system has wheel speed sensors, ABS pump, pedal travel sensor, ABS brain,and relays. Fortunately I had the codes read, and it was the pump and pedal travel sensor in my case.

BTW more than likely its one of the wheel speed sensors (they get dirty) just google e36 ABS and you will find a bunch of good stuff

Oh and a peake tool won't reset ABS lights
