Angry

Have you tried feeding it today? I've found that when mine gets cranky if I feed it worth something around $1K it feels better and no longer cranky. <grin>

I feel your pain. I had my module repaired, now my timing chain tensioner is on the fritz. I put in a new windshield and last week it got blasted in a sand storm and is all pitted so I'm working on a solution for that. My telescoping steering column has started to make a noise. Lastly, in 110F heat I decided to open the "vent" on my moonroof and now that broke. It won't lift the back of the glass and now it rattles. So, I would say that mine has gotten a case of gluttony as it's been well fed recently. LOL.

Anyone have a pic of the back of an X5 4.6 ABS Module? Trying to see if this one will match up... Another video of the same issue.

Read your chassis errors. Mine had the same behavior when a wheel speed sensor stopped reporting. Lost the cluster, trio of dash lights, etc. You can bring up a menu to read all 4 simultaneously, and slowly drive it. One of them was reporting nothing.

They do a good repair, the ABS module needs to be coded to the vehicle if a unit is swapped.

So I removed the E53 ABS Module and it appears to be slightly different than the spare rebuilt e38 e39 module I have. I believe the 2 prongs the e39 one has is for the pre charge pump which the x5 doesn't have. I installed it just for testing purposes and sure enough I couldn't program it to the car due to a coding index issue of the module. With the e39 abs module installed, I still have the trifecta and no speedo but the X doesn't go into failsafe and everything else still functions properly. I will just send my original module out for repair. Attached is the E39 and then the E53 module to show the differences between tje 2 and the measurement of the screws that it uses. I think they are T20 torx?Name:  20200711_234932.jpg

I ended up going to the hardware store and buying M5 Allen heads to replace the aluminum originals. My Indy asked me to replace them but BMW doesn't list them as a part number. The M5 had the correct thread and diameter and I was able to match the depth easily.
