Hi I have a 1995 bmw 740IL the egnition won't start and the ABS light,lights up along with two other lights. Noticed the symbol pop up after getting stuck in the snow and forcing my way out but it worked fine until I parked it up and tried to start it up again later that day.
when applying the brakes the front end drops and makes a funny noise ? As well as going over speed bumps -does it sound like front suspension bushings that have worn out ?
