These units are fairly easy to replace, you just need to get it coded to the car once you do, driving it would hurt but i wouldnt rec. doing it. The trans needs speed sensor inputs to work right, if it does not see that you may go into failsafe mode in an extreme case.

Having the same, ABS/DSC unit + 2 speed sensors + lights as you are gone.
Been 2 months now, been diagnosed by BMW, got the part number but have not done it yet. So been driving 2 months like this, no pb.

I am using my GPS to let me know the speed cause it is easy to lose your foot oj the pedal...

ABS/DSC unit is about 700 USD.

Well the only problem is that the mileage counter has stopped working, so I hope it is still saved somewhere and it will show off again when the car will be fixed.

On the front of the ABS/DSC hydraulic unit, six t15 or t10 (cant remember) bolts. The black plastic portion with the connector, no bleeding required.

Bring it to a mechanic/shop with the proper diagnostic software.

There is a company online that will rebuild the unit for like 120 dollars. Go on an e39 forum and there are tons of threads on it
