    update: lights still on

    Cleaned the front wheel sensors, the lights still come on after a few minutes of driving (ABS, brake, DSC, tire pressure monitor). I'll clean the rear ones soon and see if it clears things up.

    great directions!

    Pulled and cleaned both front sensors, hope that will do the trick. They were indeed gunked up with metal shavings. Thanks again Snook.

    Checked my Bentley's, no info on multiple lights

    Might just be an electrical bug? Or like snook says maybe?

    Sorry I didn't have anything more.

    does it need to be on jacks? thanks!

    no worries, when you have time, thanks.

    I let you down and did not check.

    I got carried away in my remodel project at home and forgot. I will pull the manual tonight and report. Sorry about the delay.

    could be a wheel speed sensor up front...

    they get clogged up with tire junk.....

    simple allen wrench can take it out...attaches to the back of the'll see it....allen bolt.

    I will try to remember to check my book tonight

    I recall that multiple lights at one time actually does mean something. If I remember, I will try to look it up tonight. I'll post back tomorrow if I find something or not.

    Weird dummy lights are on...what's the deal?

    Over the past 4 days they've come on twice. Usually if I turn off the engine for an extended period they don't come back. It's the ABS, traction control, brake, and tire sensor light, all at once. Any ideas? Perhaps a sensor or fuse? No loss of power. Any input appreciated. 2001 E46 M3 coupe, 83xxx miles. Thanks.
