D36 ABS Sensor - Which One?

Hi folks.

I have the ABS sensor light on my dash lit up. How can I figure out which one it is?

Cheers

The ABS light on your dash doesn't necessarily mean there's a bad sensor. The most common reasons for the light to be on are 1) a faulty wheel speed sensor, 2) a bad ABS relay, 3) a bad pedal travel sensor, 4) a stuck/clogged solenoid valve, 5) a faulty ABS pump motor, or 6) a bad brake light switch.

In regards to the m3forum.net DIY posted above...you do NOT need to remove the glovebox to access the ABS computer. Just remove the kick panel below the glove box.
