BMW has highlighted the brand’s obsession for quality and advanced designs throughout their history, all the while forcing the opposition to keep up with their vehicles. BMW is part of the German big three of automakers, along with Audi and Mercedes. Together, they make up the three best selling luxury vehicle producers in the world. Their credibility speaks for itself and follows into their products, especially their ABS parts and components. The primary responsibility of your BMW’s sensors is to keep the on-board computer or electronic control module updated on what is going on in your BMW on a consistent basis. Your anti-locking braking system (ABS) speed sensor is a magnet that picks up on a cogged ring that is on the spindles of the wheel. The ABS speed sensor allows your computer to be informed of how quick your vehicle’s wheels are spinning. To get to your ABS sensor, first elevate the rear of your BMW in a secure position with an auto jack and put it on jack stands. Position wheel blocks around your front tires and take off the rear tires to in order to test your ABS speed sensors. Next, find where your engine's electrical wiring harness connects to the sensor's electrical wiring harness. This is commonly close to and secured around the strut housing, in the wheel well, in the front area and around the shocks in the rear.

You can now take off your BMW’s ABS sensor using a quarter-inch ratchet with an 8 to 10 millimeter socket, which is usually found by the heat shield on your vehicle’s caliper. Inspect the end of the sensor. If it looks like a large hairy ball at the end of it, then too much debris is getting in the way of the sensor. You should spray the sensor with some brake cleaner and wipe it down with the rag to take away all of the debris. Debris on the sensor can send bad signals to your BMW’s on board computer. Detach your engine harness from the sensor harness. Set the voltage meter to ohms and link the positive and negative terminals of the voltage meter to the input and output on the sensor. If the voltage meter is reading at infinity, then the sensor is broken and has to be replaced. Switch the meter back to volts, if you do not see an infinity reading in the ohms setting. If the voltage meter reads above five volts, it is beginning to fail and can bring about consistent issues. If the voltage meter reads below 5 volts, examine the knock sensor for any decomposition and inspect the electrical connections leading to the knock sensor.
