2000 BMW 540i V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 162, 00 miles
I have had the ABS and traction control and the other sensor light for stability control came on one warm day then went out after a cold day then stayed on until a rainy day. It went away for the day. I get the P0500 code only my speed gauge works so does the computer speed and the cruise control. I tried to look at the diode test with home built test leads that fit the 2 pins but never get anything from all 4 sensors. I changed one rear with new and it fell apart took a few hours to remove all the plastic in the hole. I just don't understand how to test the sensor properly. DO I use the line with arrow for testing with my meter or OHMS set at 20m and if so what should be the right reading for each speed sensor? I'm not fixing the unit until I test each wheel speed sensor. I also see that there is a sensor under the drivers seat.
have the same problem?
