Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the traction of the car if not fixed it can effect your rev limiter slowing performance

What does this codes means 2781 & 277f & 2782 & 27BB


You need to read the standard OBD2 codes, use a code reader and read the codes at the diagnostic port under the dash. OBD codes start with a "P" then four numbers 0-9

I have a 1999 BMW 323I five speed, but when ever I shift to 3rd gear the asc light comes on and the car will not pick up speed


ASC light is part of the ABS system. ASC means slip control system.When this light comes on because it is integrated with the DME or for a better term ECM (control module) It commands trottle reduction. The ASC uses the wheel speed sensor your only fix is get the ABS or (brake inspection) look at The computure engine management thinks you are slipping.

Have replaced ABS module on bmw 525 E39 and ABS now ok, but the ASC lamp will not go off on the dash and fault code 23 (incorrect coding) will not clear from system? Everyone told us the ABS ecu does not...


ABS/ASC module is faulty
CLASSIC ABS FAILURE SYMPTOMS:
- Most of the time, the problem is the ABS module or one of the 4 wheel speed sensors (& sometimes the brake pressure sensor)
- In my 2002 BMW E39 DSC, three orange (warning) cluster display lights lit, ABS, Brake, & DSC
- The 3 warning lights reset when the ignition is turned off, only to repeatedly reappear within minutes of normal driving
- The fault is often intermittent leading you to falsely believe you've resolved the problem (proper diagnosis is important)
- Sometimes the fault only appears when the engine is hot; other times only at speeds over 40 mph
- Carsoft may erroneously show a rear speed sensor failure; but just replacing the speed sensor may make no difference.
- All the work is in correct diagnosis of the problem; parts replacement is trivial (from 1 to six bolts in a few minutes)
- Hence, this BMW E39 ABS 3-warning light DIY will concentrate on understanding and diagnosis of the problem

When your ASC light is on this is to let you know your Automatic Stability Control system is switched off press the ASC button Till light is off /ASC is on this works with your rev limiter and should stabilized your idle. If the problem persists have your throttle control unit checked as this can trigger the ASC light as well and may also activate the ABS light if not fixed

How do i shut off the traction control in my 2001 BMW 3-series coupe when there is no switch on the dash?


To turn off the traction control, you need to press and hold the traction control button. Normally this is located on the centre console above the gearstick and you should have one of the following;

ASC or ASC +T
DSC
finally a button with an exclamation inside a triangle with an arrow on the outside in a clockwise direction. You'll have one of these 4 buttons.

Simply pressing it once will partially turn it off - (depending if its dsc, if not dsc but asc then the system will be turned off)

If you press and hold however, the system will be fully turned off and a warning light will appear on the dash. Again this all depends on the system you have and if you need to press and hold until the light comes on the instrument cluster,or just to press once!

Hope this helps!
