"Gino" is selling me a remanufactured one for $275 plus shipping and tax (when I got the invoice the shipping seemed a tad high and he charged me LA County tax rate which is also high, but I'm not going to argue over a few dollars, total came to $317.13). He does seem to know what he's talking about.

He says that with the six cylinder there is a 75% chance that it won't need programming, only steering angle sensor calibration. If it does need programming he couldn't say whether I can do that with BMW Scanner 1.4.
I haven't tried on BMW Scanner 1.4 but I've read that it's not possible. I also didn't see it as an option on my schwaben/Foxwell. I read that BMW DIS is the way to go for programming the ABS module.

Hopefully I'll be part of the 75% that doesn't need to program it (but my luck so far with this issue hasn't been running in that direction).

He said that after I calibrate the steering angle sensor the lights should go away on their own, otherwise I'll need to program. I guess I'll be learning about DIS if that happens.

I believe my 02 4.6 recalibrates the SAS by moving the steering from lock to lock and back to center.

I have now read that the following procedure works:

TURN YOUR STEERING WHEEL LEFT TO RIGHT AND RIGHT TO LEFT THEN BACK TO CENTER , SHUT CAR OFF FOR A MINUTE AND RESTART,

Sounds simple enough, I thought i'd have to do it through a scanner. Hope the coding goes as easy!

Thanks for all the tips.

I got the replacement ABS module from modulerepairpro and installed it. Did not need to code, all I had to do was the steering sensor calibration which I did without a scanner, there's a good description of the procedure here.

Trifecta lights went off immediately, CEL went off after a brief drive. And my speedometer works again! I did clear the codes afterwards with the Foxwell.

Turnaround was quick from module repair, I was a little disappointed in how filthy the case of the "rebuilt" module was, not that it really matters, the internal parts that I could see looked quite clean. But I had cleaned my case before I sent it to them and it just seemed a bit unprofessional.

Mostly this is a sigh of relief to have those problems out of my way so I can get back to work on the suspension (on this one) and the cooling system on the 2005.

Sounds like your ABS module went well !

I'm on my second ABS. 1st one was replaced around 50K-60K if I recall....

Second one was around 130K-140K if memory recalls. I sent to BBA and I have zero clue WTF was up, but they shipped it back out the same day they received it and when I called them saying u guys repaired it that quick, they astounding said YES . Their rebuilt was not fixed, time wasted . Got a refund and I just sprung for a new one.

I guess I've been lucky, that was my original module I sent in at 218K miles. I have done a couple of wheel speed sensors, but that was all.

module repair pro seems serious about fixing the stuff.

I got mine back from Module Repair Pro and installed last week. No faults were found in my ABS Module. I also have a brand new Bosch transversal-acceleration sensor installed. I put it back in the X5 and after recalibration of the SAS and transverse acceleration sensor I still have the errors for:
54 DSC: rotation rate sensor plausibility
6A DSC: transversal-acceleration sensor plausibility

It's at least nice to have the ABS module back in so I can have speedometer and cruise again. Working with Gino at repair module pro was great. He was honest and tried to help me troubleshoot over the phone. I will use him again for future module rebuilds.

Now I get to keep going on my stupid trifecta witch hunt.... Gino suggests a bad wire or loose ground.
