I have some simular problems with my e39,
my speedometer gives about the double of the actual speed, so according to the speedometer i can drive 240 in 3th gear
my abs & asc warninglights are on. and my OBD doesnt work, only temperature is given, when i press the obc button nothing happens.
is all of this possible because of the wheelspeed sensor?
My LR sensor snapped at the neck and it stuck in there lol... I'll probably have to drill it out or something... be careful when working with old plastic parts people.
Hey, I have a 1998 E39 - 528i with a dead front passenger speed sensor (checked with a Peake Research Code Reader and that was the fault that came up). The ABS and ASC lights pop on and off intermittently and have done so for about a year. I ordered a new one and when I received it, I realized it only had one bolt hole rather than two bolt holes as the current one does.
I did the install and it didn't fix the ABS and ASC lights, so I am now thinking that the one bolt and two bolt speed sensors are not compatible (I was told that they were). Has anyone tried replacing a two bolt speed sensor with a single bolt one and had success?
First post and any help would be amazing!
I am having an issue that seems like the ABS is being activated when it doesn't need to.
When braking a little harder than normal, and I hit a bump, the ABS seems like it kicks in and the car starts bumping in the front left corner. Anyone know if that is a wheel speed sensor issue? I plan to do these tests when I replace my wheel bearings soon if so.

It IS the sensor issue, soon your ABS/TC light gonna turn on. I had the same issue.
