I'm not getting any error codes or warning lights on the dash.

I suspect it is either the membrane travel sensor and / or the brake booster. Is it possible to replace just the travel sensor? Anyone have the correct part #?

Obviously, this is dangerous and I have unplugged the BAS / EPS module. Any ideas where to start trouble shooting? I think these cars also have yaw and steering angle sensors that are inputs for the BAS / EPS?

Thanks in advance!

Will do. Thanks for the tip!

E55 BAS Problem

I have a 2001 E55 with 124K miles that seems to be randomly activating the BAS at highway speeds when lightly touching the brakes. This means I am getting full brake when I am only applying very light brake pressure and it momentarily triggers the ABS to prevent the front wheels from locking. It releases brakes and deactivates the BAS a second after I take my foot off the brake pedal. I have no BAS / EPS warning lights in the dash.

Obviously, this is dangerous and I have unplugged the BAS / EPS module. Any ideas where to start trouble shooting? I think these cars also have yaw and steering angle sensors that are inputs for the BAS / EPS?

Thanks in advance!
