    Instead or before rebuilding module check all four wires on wheels...
    BTW, visual check is not enough... if replace one of the wires, must replace the others, too. CAVEAT: wires may appeared to be all right but the shield is weak and crack...

    It works when it's cold most likely because of a "cold solder joint" in control unit. Before I shelled out any money I would open up unit and investigate. Your looking for small rings/cracks in solder around the heavier components. Output transistors,relays etc..

    I've sent my module out to Module Master - $300 +

    shipping. Got it repaired and sent back to me. No reprogramming needed as I got my original module back. 5 year warranty. I couldn't be happier with the deal. Installation and removal was very simple.
    Good luck!Gene

    Circle BMW was $499 for the part.

    It is a very simple job to r&r the part. Then you must have the car re-programed.

    I wish I had a good answer for that but I do not all I know is that was the problem with the car I had here and yes I pulled my hair out before I figured it out.

    why would it work when temp < 35 degrees

    That's mysterious! Whenever it's freezing outside... both speedometer and traction control works... ?!?!?

    Re: Help! ABS/ASC/Traction Control Mysterious problem

    It is in fact the ABS/ASC/DSC control computer which is on the front of the ABS pump. Delt first hand with that and that is exactlly what it did.

    Re: Help! ABS/ASC/Traction Control Mysterious problem

    The speedometer issue would seem to point to a bad sensor, but it is extremely unlikely that multiple sensors (especially 3 or 4) are bad. In my case, the computer said a sensor was bad, but actually the control unit itself was defective. There is a repair kit available (about $800) if this is the case for you.

    Help! ABS/ASC/Traction Control Mysterious problem

    I have a 1999 740i with teh following diagnosed problems:

    -- three ABS sensors were bad

    I replaced all four sensors but am still having these problems:

    -- ABS/BRAKE and AST symbol are lit permanently
    -- Speedometer no longer works

    EXCEPT

    (1) when it's really cold in the morning (2) for about 10 miles or so then it dies.
    -- occasional loss of power steering..

    I had the system reset by my mechanic many many times.. but to no avail. I have 4 new abs sensors installed (properly.. cleaning before installing and what not...)

    Where do I go from here
