Apologies for not replying sooner but family thing NGS got in the way, I am afraid that I have accidentally deleted the history. But I did take a photo from before I did it.

The engine mgmt light came on when everything lit up. When I scanned it in ISTA the light went off, that was before I cleared it.

Surely if the issue was still present it would come back on and show in the scan.

You are going through the typical stage of denial! I already told you I went through the exact same, the issue and what the fix was. After my first experience with this I blamed the battery, changed to a new one and all was well for about 6months! Then it came back, seems like it’s a progressive decline until the module just stops, I have experienced this with each and every module I’ve had to replaced.

Thanks, I need to check this out. I don't have a multimeter but should be able to get hold of one.

My problem is time, weekdays are not good as I don't have a garage. Weekends are a blur of family stuff.

I am biting the bullet and going to replace the ABS Module. The symptoms are becoming more frequent now and looking previous posts and some other YouTube videos it seems that this is my issue.

Just a couple of questions to anyone who has changed this module themselves. Is this a simple part to replace? For someone who is not by any means a competent mechanic. Happy to give it a try but is it something that I should leave to someone more experienced? I have seen some quotes into the thousands.

Also it is difficult to find a new one and the ones I do see are very expensive. Is it advisable to go for a used one (usually go for new due to the chance that the used one could also develop a fault). Would you recommend used or should I go for a new one?

Sorry for all the questions but I desperately want to use the car but at the moment I can't trust its not going to break down.

Thanks B21

Seems I was not looking in the right places as the new ones I found were about £350

Just noticed that these are repairs.

A refurb will be much cheaper…I believe it’s the MK60 abs fitted to E89s but you / they will check…

Yeah I guess you are right, unless I get a used one from eBay (refurb will be a much better option).

Are they easy to remove/replace? Will look on YouTube as well.

FWIW I’d do a refurb ..your call..by BMW DIY standards pretty easy to do..need a programmer to bleed the system afterwards eg ISTA/Protool..

I don't think I have the ability to do my own refurb. Removing and installing I can possibly cope with though.

You misunderstood me..I’m suggesting you get a professional organisation to refurb it..not to buy a used eBay part…
