Dreaded ABS-ESP-Brake dash light
Quick question to the group: I picked up an '08 451 cab 38k miles late last December with what I assumed would've been a quick easy fix ESP-Brake-ABS-lights on issue. The rest of the car looked and felt great and the price reflected the fault (I thought, at the time). Fast forward to today I've gone through (from what I've gathered on the interwebs) a checklist of usual suspects: ABS Reluctor rings (good condition), Brake Light switch (working), ABS/ESP module (scans were pulling low voltage errors so in went a reconditioned module), steering wheel angle sensor (replaced) and finally a light cleaning up of the speed sensors/hubs. I'm at the point now where the ESP light goes off but returns momentarily. Currently, there appears to be static or noise from the wheel speed sensor (either the hub or sensor itself) so I'm looking into replacing those as well.
Is there anything else I should be considering? Anything I may have missed? It's really turning into a head scratcher. The rest of the car is in tip top condition and have been driving really well.
TIA, this is my first post here. In past years, Iíve been active on the BMW boards. I really love the 451, best personality-to-weight-to-value ratio on the market!
