    I think the relay's are a PITA to get to - they are behind the plastic shroud, behind the coolant overflow tank on the fire wall. I'm trying to get in there to get to my fuel pump relay, it's like fort knox - They look like this:

    >>>>> Edit: Wait, I'm not sure where they are located, Bavauto says that they are under the dash. Hmmm.

      nope, the main, fuel, and purge valve relays are behind the coolant reservoir. the ABS relay (if equiped) will be found clipped to the ABS ECU just left of the steering column

      since you have an '88, you should have the relay. i do not since later wiring harnesses eliminated the relay

          There is a fuse wire in the relay which 'blows', common issue.

            and another fuse wire in the ABS ECU as well (Martin H found that after a loooong time of searching)!!


            Goodbye M3, you served me well.

                You might also want to check and clean off all four sensors at the corners. Its pretty common for them to clogged with magnetic schmutz and trigger an error light.

                  I think there is only 2 sensors and did replace them when i did the brake job

                    oh really? i figured there is one in there, since on my car BMW eliminated the external relay, and it would surprise me if BMW powered any ECU directly off the batt. did he repair it?

                    nope, there are 4 ABS sensors. maybe you're confusing those with the 2 brake pad sensors?
