    My E38 735 failed its MOT because the ABS light doesn't come on 'in sequence' when the ignition is started, but it does, but only after it has first been unlocked, but the MOT station still wont pass it. Can anyone offer any advice please!!!

    What do you mean after it has first been unlocked?
    and which MOT station did you go to?

    If you unlock it then start the ignition the abs light comes on in sequence, if it has been left unlocked when start the ignition it doesnt come on. I take it to my local one where I have taken all my cars before and where my parents take their car

    Have you got an aftermarket alarm fitted?

    I have seen some where first stage is regular electrics, second stage would be dash lights on, run stage etc, but that circuit can be cut by an alarm until you press the fob unlock button.

    I would ditch that MOT station for now anyway, they sound like they could be a lot of hassle
