STALLING AND YELLOW BRAKE, ABS AND TRACTION CON

2005 BMW Z4

Electrical problem
2005 BMW Z4 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 35000 miles

My car has been acting " wierd" as of late with the yellow brake, ABS and traction control engaging from time to time. This usually happens at idle or at slow speeds.

Do advise why I need to look out for, my hunch tells me it could be a electrical module that needs to be replaced but then I'm not a mechanic. This could be caused due to a variety of reasons. Having explored forums online, it seems this is a very common issue among the same model range and with BMW post 1998. I'm hoping for a solution that doesn't break the bank.

You dont want to break the piggy bank, I can dig it. To be blunt about it, you should have considered a jap car, BMW stands for Break My Wallet. The first step is to have the car scanned for fault codes and report them back here, we will go from there.
