Parts Required:

ABS wheel speed sensor, Molykote Longterm 2 grease

Hot Tip:

Check for fault codes before replacing

Performance Gain:

Repair faulty ABS sensor

Complementary Modification:

Properly route wiring, use new clips if needed

The ABS wheel speed sensor monitors road wheel movement and sends an electronic signal to the ABS / DSC module. This signal is used to calculate road wheel speed to help with ABS braking and stability control features. BMW E90 models utilize a magneto resistive style sensor. When an ABS wheel speed sensor fails, the ABS/DSC module loses road wheel speed for the corresponding wheel and sets a fault code for ABS wheel speed signal. When a fault code is set, the ABS/DSC warning light will illuminate. You will have to scan the module and read the fault codes to determine which speed sensor is the problem. Keep in mind, other problems can illuminate the ABS/DSC warning light, be sure to scan and read fault codes before replacing parts.

In this tech article, I will go over how to replace the front and rear ABS wheel speed sensors on BMW E90 vehicles.

Lift axle of vehicle you are replacing ABS sensor on. See our tech article on jacking up your vehicle.

Front ABS sensor:
Working behind front strut (yellow arrow), open plastic door (green arrow) for ABS sensor electrical connector.

If sensor does not slide out easily, lever out using a flathead screwdriver. Lever close to the sensor and wiggle it out slowly. Install new sensor with a thin coating of Molykote Longterm 2 or similar grease to ABS sensor and housing. Install fastener and tighten. Then route wiring harness as it was before and reconnect at housing.

Rear ABS sensor: Remove rear wheel on side you are replacing sensor.
Working at rear wheel bearing carrier, remove ABS sensor 5mm Allen fastener.

Comments and Suggestions:
CHris Comments: Nick,
no i didnt replace the sensors yet.
I just cleared the code and drove around.
Lights came just back on and i read all codes again.
5DB1 and 5DB3 plus now:
CDA7, 2FE4 and 2D5A.
Thanks for the help.

October 30, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Start with the sensor. If lights return, likely a faulty VANOS actuator. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Simon says Comments: I have CODE1 D382 No Message LDM 0xD5, receiver DSC, transmitter LDM.
CODE2 D359 DSC: F-CAN No message SZL,C9
CODE3 DSC: Control unit, overvoltage
I get the abs dsc an 4x4 wheel failure warning lights are any of them codes for a wheel speed sensor ?
October 29, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: No. Those faults are for the DSC module not communicating. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
CHris Comments: Nick,
I cleared the codes and they came right on again.
Under DME/DTC I get also codes: CDA7, 2FE4 and 2D5A.
October 28, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Did you replace the sensor? The fault came back after replacement? - Nick at Pelican Parts  
CHris Comments: 2011 E93 60k miles - Brake DTC and DSC/ABS lights came on together. 5 min later Service Enigne Soon light came on too. Stayed on since. Reader gives me 2 codes: 5DB1 wheel-speed sensor:plausibility, rear left - and - 5DB3 wheel-speed sesor: plausibility, rear left.
Do I only need to replace that one speed sensor?
Mostly i read about the E9x trifecta, but with the Service Engine Soon light, this is the superfecta. Thanks.
October 26, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: If you only have wheel speed fault codes, I would start by replacing the sensor. The DME may set a fault for vehicle speed if the signal is missing. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Hector Comments: DSC 4x4 comes on as soon as I start the engine, next the flat tire monitor comes as soon as drove a meter. Cleaned all 4 abs sensors, checked ac voltages min/max as I spinned the wheel but no luck. besides the turn signal does not go off automatically and also the auto cruise not functioning.does it have something to do with steering angle sensor. BMW x1 28i 2012
October 16, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: I would assume possible data bus or communication issue. I would start by checking the vehicle for fault codes. If multiple systems are not working properly, fault codes will be set. This will be your best bet when diagnosing. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
DrMike Comments: Replaced right rear speed sensor for 2010 bmw 328i with aftermarket sensor. It cleared abs fault code but now I have code P0503- speed sensor "a" circuit intermittent, along with P1775 for that right rear sensor. Did I loosen something along the replace. The fitment seems good although some of the plastic snaps on old circuit connector did break. Check engine light is only visible display.
October 3, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Possible it is the wrong sensor. I would check the signal to confirm it is faulty. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Vegasdrip Comments: My 2006 325xi sat for almost 2 years and I just put it on the road and had to change the battery. Now there are multiple things going on.. No speedometer, no wipers, turn signals do not shut off after turning the wheel, abs light and dsc lights are on, and occasionally I get a yellow steering wheel and lock fault. The battery has been registered at the dealer and nothing had changed. Please help.
September 23, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: A short may have been caused when replacing the battery, blowing a fuse or damaging a control module. I would start by checking the vehicle for fault codes. If multiple systems are not working properly, fault codes will be set. This will be your best bet when diagnosing.
- Nick at Pelican Parts
 
Bill Comments: I purchased a 1999 E46 sedan and the ABS/ASC lights came on soon after the purchase. I ran the codes and got 95-Connction to DME/DDE to Can Bus; 11 Speed Sig Front LFT: and 71 ABS Pump Motor Fault. I replaced the front speed sensors just before taking the readings so I am surprised I got the 11 Speed sensor code. I don't know where to go from here. I don't want to parts chase. I did note that when changing the sensor the plastic connector fell apart just as you warned. Would that cause the fault? What do you think I should do from here.
September 7, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: The speed sensor fault can be due to a faulty signal or reference voltage from the module. My advice is to check the signal from each sensor to the module. Start with a known good one. Use a dvom and back probe the sensor terminals. Rotate the wheel by hand, record the voltage change. Compare that info the wheel with the fault code. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Gemma335 Comments: I brought a 2007 e92 335i Saturday on the way home the abs light went on and then off again. However on my drive home tonight it came back on.. any ideas what this could be? Any help would be great!
July 27, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: It could be many things, from a sensor to the control module. I would start by checking the vehicle for fault codes. If the system is not working properly, a fault code will be set. This will be your best bet when diagnosing.

Paul Comments: Got my abs warning lights come on after a few mind of driving a.. I took passenger side wheel off and it seems it has 2 sensors in the little box that they connect to . 1 wire goes to sensor in back of hub but the 2nd sensor wire just hangs down . Like it's been cut.but I can't see where it goes to .and the drivers side only has 1 wire to sensor..where does the 2nd wire go to on passenger side
July 22, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: That could be for the brake pad sensor. May have been disconnected at some point. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Keirtan Comments: I have a 320d 2007. For a few weeks now been getting intermittent ABS light and occasional loss of power. On one occasion the tire pressure light came on but no pressure loss. The lights go off after restarting.m the car. I took it to my local garage today and they said no fault codes showing. They said both rear abs sensors have been worn down by the reluctor rings and both sensors and reluctor rings need replacing would this not show up a code. They suggested driving for a few days with DTS off and if no abs lights show on the dash then it shows it is the sensors and reluctor rings that need replacing. Same garage changed a tyre 3 weeks ago and problems only started after this.
July 21, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: How were the sensors worn down, what caused it?

If it were the sensors, there would be fault codes for them. - Nick at Pelican Parts
 
Rosler Comments: Just bought 320i m sport 2008, on way home car lost power, ABS Light and Traction Control Light appeared on dash. Any ideas what this will be?
July 9, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Could be a speed sensor issue. I would start by checking the vehicle for fault codes. If the system is not working properly, a fault code will be set. This will be your best bet when diagnosing.

Yang Comments: Hi, I have a 2011 e90. The ABS lights are on and the mechanic said I need to replace a sensor. Oddly, when I am in sequential mode the car auto shifts from 1st gear to 2nd at around 3000 rpms and won't let me downshift from 2 to 1 even at 2000 rpms. The auto shift occurs even in sport plus mode. Is the car auto shifting as a safety precaution until the sensor is changed?
July 1, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: If the fault was for a speed sensor, likely in a default mode. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Nic Comments: I have a 2006 3 series. The dsc warning light flashes constantly making the car judder, at first it used to do it on corners if the road was damp but now it does it in dry conditions when I'm driving in a straight line. The abs light sometimes comes on but turns off after several seconds. I just keep turning dsc off and it drives fine. What does this mean?
June 4, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Could be an issue with a sensor. I would check wheel speed using a BMW scan tool. If one of the wheels doesn't match, the sensor may be faulty. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Mike Comments: Thank you for the excellent ABS Sensor replacement article above. I have a 2005 320d SE E90 and I was wondering if it had the same ABS wheel speed sensor. The DTC error code I am getting is 5BD2 Left Rear Wheel Speed sensor with ABS/DSC/Tyre deflation warnings on the dash.
February 27, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: it will have similar sensors. Give our parts specialists a call at 1-888-280-7799. They can figure out what part or repair kit you need.
- Nick at Pelican Parts
 
Bodine Comments: I have a 2011 BMW 328i sedan. At 66,000 miles the ABS Check Engine lights came on, and Speedometer quit working. I checked and wiped all speed sensors and reassembled. Same status... Should I take to dealership, or should I give it a few days to see if everything begins to work again? Is there a fuse or something else that I can check before spending "Shop Money"?
February 19, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: You will check the vehicle for fault codes, It could be a sensor or wiring issue. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Alex Comments: Hi Nick,

I have a 2006 BMW 330i and I have three lights illuminated on my dash - 1. Yellow Brake light 2. Traction control triangle circlelight and 3. Tire pressure light. The cruise control also does not work. My wipers and turn signals work just fine. I took to BMW dealership and they said possibly the steering angle sensor which would cost approx. $1,100. Since my wipers and turn signals work fine, wouldn't that indicate that steering angle sensor unit is good? Would it possibly be an abs speed sensor because of the cruise control not working? Thanks!
January 27, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: No, it wouldn't. Part of the circuit can be faulty. I would go with their diagnosis. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Easy-pd Comments: I have an Alpina D3, which is based around a 320d. When I get speed sensor errors, it is erratic but the speedo goes mental too 70-0 4 or 5 times sometimes the error lights stay until I turn off ignition, sometimes they go immediately. Is this speedo thing normal? I think from memory I get p0500 code. By the way, I've used several of your guides, they are the simplest and clearest photographed I've found. If you were uk based, I'd buy all my parts from you guys out of principle. Thanks a lot!
January 16, 2016
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: The P0500 indicates a speed sensor fault. You will have to scan the entire vehicle to get the fault code and location for the sensor causing the issue.- Nick at Pelican Parts  
mke Comments: hi nick, do you know the resistance value or ohms value of this FTM WHEEL SPEED SENSOR.
THANKS, MIKE
December 28, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: No, resistance is not a good test for the sensor. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Alan Comments: Hey Nick, I have a 2007 330xi e90 manumaticauto/manual tranny and ive googledand searched everywhere but cannot find anyone with the same problems... so when i turn my key on, dash lights come on supposed to my ABS light DOES come on, when started it goes off like its supposed to, but when i run a dash cluster instrument test to test warning lights they all come on EXCEPT my ABS light...? why would that be if i know the light works cause it comes on when I turn key on? but goes off when car is started?
November 22, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: What are you trying to fix? If just chasing a cluster test, where you expected a result that didn't occur, I would ignore the light not coming on. Unless there is an issue with the ABS / DSC and fault codes are stored. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Skinny Comments: I have a 2000 bmw 523i it had a fault code for rear right speed sensor, I changed the sensor I leave the car parked over night go out the next morning start the car all lights off drive 4 miles and lights on dash come back on leave car for 2 hours start again lights go off then 1/2 a mile come back on any help would be appreciated many thanks Chris.
November 15, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: I would confirm the same code is stored. If so, the wiring may be damaged. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Kev Comments: I forgot to add this tidbit to my previous thread. I can disconnect the battery for say 15 minutes and the lights go away and sometimes they come back on for a minute or two and then go back off or sometimes not come on at all. Very intermittent. If it was a true failure on part of the pump and module then shouldn't they come on all the time?
November 14, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: No, only when the fault is present. Intermittent is just that and I have seen your issue act this way before. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Kev Comments: I have an 07 328i convertible. Only owned it for a year and never owned a BMW in my life and I'm 52. I went to the mountains a week ago, no issues. However in my home area I went around a sharp curve daily. And the abs lights, DSC and brake light came on. I didn't hit a pothole or anything. Take it to my local Indy shop where they are highly recommended and trouble codes indicated faulty abs pump n module. Price to replace 32-3500. Car has 110k miles. I hate to put so much money into this. Shop guy told me used ones can't be coded to the car and research I've done says coding can only be done once so it's important to get same model and year if swapping for used and then it's a gamble because used ones might not work. I'm going to go to another shop for a second opinion and possibly a third. Can you gentlemen give me any idea as I'm brand new to the BMW world and I'm in dire need of info for the most part. Thanks. I live in Wilmington, NC in case you guys know of anyone in this area or Myrte Beach, SC
November 14, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: If you have a faulty pump, most time the entire assembly has to be replaced. As far as coding, you can try a used unit from the same model / year. Worst case you end up needing to buy a new one. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Neil m. Comments: Hi Nick, been getting abs, DTC, brake, tp monitor failure, lights intermittently for months. If I tap the abs module pump housing and reset the tyre pressure monitor I can lose the faults for a while. Had a scan done by local garage, 5df0,5df1 abs pump &plug fault read. Can a bad wheel sensor cause pump to stop working temporarily.
November 9, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Not likely. The module is probably seeing a fault in the pump circuit. You can run the pump using a scan tool to see if it fails or stops when commanded on.- Nick at Pelican Parts  
joshuar152 Comments: i have a 2008 bmw 328i recently had coilovers installed and abs, dtc traction and brake light are all on. checked the speed sensors and one was cut. i replaced it with a beck arnley one that read abs sensor left right. does it need to be side specific or oem? its still not recieving signal from the new speed sensor what would you think it is. it says wheel speed sensor front left so im not sure thanks
October 11, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Could be the wrong sensor type. Only way to know is test the signal and circuit. You may have damaged wires further up, or a faulty sensor. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Davey Comments: Hi Nick,

Do you have a guide, to replace the water pump on a E90
320D model 2005.

I have noticed a grumbling noise.

Regards

Dave
October 8, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: We don't currently have that tech article. If we get a chance to perform the procedure, we will be sure to document it.

I would grab a repair manual. It will have the procedure, special tools and torque specs.

Give our parts specialists a call at 1-888-280-7799. - Nick at Pelican Parts
 
Bimmer1305 Comments: Hi, I have the DSC, Brake, and the ABS lights illuminated on the dash. I get the fault code: 93FB No Message vehicle Speed from DCS, ACSM receiver / MRS5, DSC transmitter. Do you think this is a speed sensor issue or possibly something else? Thanks
October 7, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: That fault is from the DME complaining about a missing speed signal from the ABS module. i would check the ABS for fault codes and see if the speed signal is present. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Matt Comments: Hello, is a scan tool required to remove a fault code even after a new ABS sensor has been installed? Thanks
September 17, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: To clear the fault yes. However, with ABS codes, if a sensor, the light should go out once the good sensor is seen to function again by the ABS module. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
bechan Comments: I have replaced the sensor, but the problem continues, can you suggest any more reasons for this fault.
Fault: Speed Sensor Front Right Code: 5DA0
Fault: Brake pad wear VA Code: 5DE0
Fault: Rear right direction detection Code: 5DC6
Fault: Speed Sensor rear Right Code: 5DC2
Fault: Speed Sensor rear Right Code: 5DC1
August 12, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: This could be a wiring issue. Check for the sensor signal to the module. Confirm it is present. If not, the wiring may be faulty. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Cvega Comments: How do i know which sensor is broken? I try scanning it and it only says dsc-abs , "fault, 3" im not sure what that 3 means
August 11, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: I am not sure either. That code may be the way your scan tool describes it. I would check with tech support for your scan tool, they can help you determine which sensor the code is referring to. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Dave Comments: Hi Nick,

Am getting the code CC-ID 42 on mine E90 320D, on the dash for the ABS fault. I have replaced the sensor as well as the Abs ring on the drive shaft, can you suggest any more reasons for this fault.

Cheers
May 8, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Do you have the fault code description? I can't find it in my info. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Davey Comments: Hi Nick, the Abs light is showing on my 320d. I have replaced the sensor from eBay for an E90 but the light is still on, I had the code read see attached picture. I had the code reset which cleared the fault but it has come back on. Any pointers if after market sensor work, or do they have to be genuine.

Thanks

Davey
May 4, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Fault says not present. I am not familiar with your scan tool, but that usually means the fault is no longer present. if the fault will not clear, I would check if you installed the right part, double check the number. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
zubi Comments: Hi Nick, I have ABS, BREAK, and DTC lights on my dashboard. I took it to the dealer for a scan and they said I have fault codes for wheel speed signal R/F and L/F, steering lock, and power management. Do you think these lights are triggered by sped sensors.
April 23, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: maybe the speed sensors codes, but not the others. However, I don;t usually see two speed sensors go out at once. I would check the signals to the DSC unit. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
newunborn Comments: At first it was giving this tugs while driving like if the car was getting cough on something on first and second gear third to six gear it drove well and that when the lights came on I did some searching but no results on what I was looking for
March 31, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Check the vehicle for fault codes. Looks like there is one stored.
- Nick at Pelican Parts
 
Steve Comments: I have warnings of right&left side light failure and right and left secondary brake light failure on dash I have had it checked all lights work connections good and no error codes just warning lights every time you start car the car is bmw 325d November 07 3.0 litre auto m sport ??
March 12, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Check if the sockets or electrical connectors for the tail lights are burned. This is a common issue. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Javier Comments: The rear right ABS speed sensor fault was what the shop said and I saw the scan tool. If you are asking about the specific code numbers, I don't know.
February 23, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: The code would be helpful.

Generally wheel speed sensor faults will remain stored once a good signal is seen, but the warning light indicating a fault will go out. - Nick at Pelican Parts
 
Javier Comments: I scanned the car and I replaced the rear right abs speed sensor in my 335i 2007 sedan but lights still on, do I need to reset/delete using the BMW scan tool?
February 22, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: What was the fault code? - Nick at Pelican Parts  
dave4 Comments: Nick, I didn't have any warning lights on the dash but I scanned the car with the new bmwhat app, and it found a code in the DSC module. C998 DSC wheel tolerance control failure F-CAN. Do you think changing the ABS sensor would fix the shadow code? As i said I don't have a check engine light or ses light on. Thank you.
February 19, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Shadow code? I am not familiar with that term.

That code doesn't ring a bell to me. It could be a sensor fault, however it is not identifying a certain wheel, so I don't trust it. Any chance you can have someone with an advanced BMW scan read the faults? - Nick at Pelican Parts
 
BMWSouth Comments: Hi, Driving to work this morning on the motorway at 70 mph ABS light started flashing the power of the car stuttering. I switched off the DTC and kept switching DTC back on for 10 miles drive with same problem. Switched engine off and plugged in diagnostics at local garage. Car has no error codes? Anyone had similar happen to BMW E90 320d 55 plate?
February 16, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: If there are no fault codes, it could be a charging system issue. Check the alternator. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Rob Z Comments: An animal chewed through some of my wiring ... In need to replace the wire that goes to the sensor. But I can't find the part
February 12, 2015
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: You'll need the individual connectors and the wires with terminals. Give our parts specialists a call at 1-888-280-7799 and they can help figure out which part or repair kit you need.
- Nick at Pelican Parts
 
ARMANI Comments: THANKS NICK , I WILL CHECK THE INPUT
December 19, 2014
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: No problem. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
armani Comments: Yes only when the abs light appear the gages and some times the wipers start acting up and the car becomes heavier"?
December 12, 2014
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: OK, this may be a speed sensor or signal fault. I would check the speed sensor input into the DME. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
armani Comments: Ryan: my vehicle is a 2006 BMW 325i 3.0 engine
December 12, 2014
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Is the speedo working normally? - Nick at Pelican Parts  
armani Comments: my abs light turn on and the speedometer gage goes up and down I used the tool scan C110 for BMW the code is AB05,I replace 3 speed sensors but not the one in the front left side what can it be ?
December 12, 2014
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: what vehicle are you working on? That fault code doesn't show up in my information system.- Nick at Pelican Parts  
Ryan Comments: So I am getting a check engine light, not an abs/traction control light, that says the "Vehicle Speed Sensor "A" is Intermittent/Erratic/High", would this be the same problem? Also if you knew what the "A" meant that'd be much appreciated?
November 25, 2014
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: This would likely be a speed sensor in the transmission. You didn't mention what vehicle you are working on. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Jt Comments: Hey nick I replaced rear brakes on 2006 BMW 325 reset the brake light but I have service soon light on I check and abs it's orange but reset the brakes light and all the component there said its OK how can I reset the service light or is other problem the I don't know thank for u help .
November 8, 2014
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: There may be an issue. i would check the vehicle for fault codes using a BMW scan tool. At the minimum, you will need to the scan tool to clear the codes. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
jakes Comments: hi nick its jakes here I have a bmw 320d e90 I disconnected the battery now my abs,traction control light is on and my hanbrake light is orange when handbrake is down what can I look at to try and get the lights of.
September 18, 2014
  Followup from the Pelican Staff: You will want to read and clear the fault codes using a BMW scan tool. If the faults will not clear, you will have to repair whatever the fault codes indicate is wrong. - Nick at Pelican Parts

Johnny Comments: Do you have to clean the Inside of the hole out that the speed/abs sensor goes in ? If so what do I need to flea it out with ? Thanks

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Not usually. If you do have to clean it out, use a rag with brake cleaner on it. DOn't spray anything into the hole. - Nick at Pelican Parts

Kevin Comments: Nick, please help. I replaced back breakers and rear wheel bearings. The bearing are in the correct direction but abs/ dsc/4x4 and brake light are all on. Scanned and reset, drove car and scanner graph is telling me no abs signal from either rear sensor. I tried ohm ing the out but both show ope. The front sensors are showing 1.5 on meter. Should front and rear have the same reading. I purchased two new rear sensors but I teat them here on the bench and they show open. What the heck is going on with this hunk of junk.

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Did you transfer the tone ring for the sensor from the old parts to the new? This is the first thing that comes to mind.

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: The grease prevents the sensor from corroded and help to prevent moisture build up. I would suggest adding grease to the sensor. - Nick at Pelican Parts  
Tony Comments: The DSC/ABS light came on in my 06 330xi. Is there only one ABS sensor for the front and one for the rear? I looked where they plug in in the front on both sides of the car and on the drivers side there were 2 sensors and on the passenger side there was only one.

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: Your vehicle had a sensor at each wheel. I would check for fault codes, first. - Nick at Pelican Parts

  Followup from the Pelican Staff: The wheel speed sensors could be unplugged or damaged. I would check for fault codes using a BMW scan tool. - Nick at Pelican Parts
