99 bmw z3 2.8l.. Have a hard fault that will not reset. The

Hello...99 bmw z3 2.8l.. Have a hard fault that will not reset. The ABS light is on and the traction control symbol is on. I have code 71 on my Autel Maxidas scanner. All the wheel speed sensors are responding properly and the brake light switch active properly. Id like to check power to the ASC pump as i hear this could be an issue with the control module not giving power to the pump. This could also be a bad pump. Can someone help with this problem and is this something that needs recoding after repair?

25 December 2016 09:55Well Chad I made the 70+ mile round trip up to the 330i and did just what you explained to me and nothing happened, took my time & in about a 2 hour period did the same thing just as you instructed. The only thing that happens when you put the key in everything light up on the dash, push the start button & you can hear the fuel pump kick in, the code on the dash comes up is a symbol of like a clock ( yellow) with cogs around the out side with a thicker cog on top. Dose that tell up anything ? Thanks.One moor question, where do I rate your service at on this page ? Thanks, Ted.

Story short, I shorted my battery out to the body/frame of

Long story short, I shorted my battery out to the body/frame of my 2005 BMW 745. Now my dashboard randomly lights up like a Christmas tree. The stabilization, parking brake, traction control, etc, all goes out, but not all the time. A an indie BMW shop said a regulator probably got zapped but they'd have to test to see which one. I'd let them have a shot at it, but the last time I took my car there they had it for 1 month. I don't want to go to the dealer, they do a half ass job and I always end up going back. I can do better work myself. Any pointers on what most likely needs replaced? Used parts are cheap and I think worth a shot. I've put too much money into this car and somebody just rear ended me, so I'm replacing the taillight and bumper damper, seeing how cheap the used parts are, why not try to fix this other issue too.
