I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
The problem is either a failure of the abs module or a wheel speed sensor. A fault scan with a BMW scan tool will confirm. The abs system is what provides speed info to the speedo and that system is failed taking abs offline and the speedo as well.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
