Computer that controls ABS and stability on my BMW after several years fails as it is located in the engine compartment next to exhaust manifold/ cat converters. As a result the ABS/stability system no longer functions. It is known issue on BMW five series 1997-2003. Many computers fail after years of service or high mileage. Brakes still function but without ABS and there is no stability control (called dynamic stability control by BMW). The internal components fail because of heat in engine compartment.

The ABS / dsc control module on my 2000 528I BMW failed. When this happens the odometer and speedometer both stop working. I would also think that the ABS safety feature for stopping the car and traction control is compromised.
