i have an R reg 97 323 E36 coupe and my traction and abs lights are constantly lit on the dash. i have been told there is a good chance that its one of my speed/abs sensors. but, how can i test which one without going to diagnostics and havin my pants pulled down over the price? i work with electronics so i'm pretty handy with test meters etc apart from a megger tester which i dont have or know how to use...
could it be done with a multimeter on resistance or anyother setting? also, once fixed, would the lights on the dash go out straight away or would it need turning off by diagnostics?
i assume because the lights are on is the reason why my traction doesnt work and doesnt turn on.
my airbag light is also on but ive been told that its a common fault on the E36 and E46. they can come on by themselves or if the steering wheel has been removed for any reason(which mine has). apparently that needs turning off by diagnostics but i've also heard it can be turned off by shorting out a series of pins in the diagnostics socket? any ideas about my problems?
any help appreciated.
