    Hello,first post this for me.
    I finally bought one of my must have cars and I love it.(E28 M535i).I have been working through the things needed for the MOT and they are all done except for the ABS light,or to be exact the lack of an ABS light.
    With fingers firmly crossed I removed the instrument panel hoping it might just be a bulb.There is not even a bulb in the hole.There is one brown and red wire hanging loose with a little green connector on it,is this for the ABS light?

    They had ABS in 1986 ?

    I kid I kid

    Start by putting a bulb in the holder and see what happens.
    Swap one over from the fog lamp just to test it.

    Great minds think alike,that is just what I was going to do but the hole is not the same at all.
    The idiot lights look as if they get their readings from the instrument binnacle but this ABS hole looks like it has a seperate feed.

    Not too familiar with the E28 setup - Can you get a photo of it ?
