Mein Auto: 2000 BMW 528i
Question ABS and ASC light, no BRAKE light.

Hie all. I'm new on the forum and this is my first post. I own a 2000 528i with 117k kilometers on the odo. My dashboard shows two lights that will come on every time I start the vehicle and will not go off at all. I've searched the forum for similar problems but most of what I get refers to THREE lights (ABS, ASC/DSC and BRAKE) likely indicating a problem with the ABS module or wheel speed sensors, or all of the above. Is this possibly a similar problem that can be addressed using the same methods suggested in these posts? My ABS is not working, cruise control works fine, while pressing the ASC button does nothing to the light. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

The E39 ABS DIY seems to be the same diagnostic procedure whether you have the trifecta or the bifecta.
