Our BMW 118d is sometimes putting up ABS and DTC warning

Our BMW 118d is sometimes putting up ABS and DTC warning lights. Sometimes they just flash up and go away, sometimes they stay on until I stop and switch off when I restart. It happens about once a week, doesn't matter if the road is wet or dry.Any idea what is wrong?

Have had a bmw 55 plate 120i petrol for a few months,

Hi! Have had a bmw 55 plate 120i petrol for a few months, firstly traction light came on and then ABS light came on but car seemed to run fine. Sent to mechanic he said it needed a new ABS sensor and changed it but traction light came straight back on. Since then the tyre pressure light has come on and also red handbrake light.He said it was probably the ABS pressure sensor and not to worry about it! I've driven it for 2 months since and it's been ok.However since then the car has completely lost revs and “died” a couple of times, after petrol was run low, turn off and on again and it goes!Mechanic did diagnostics and it said pressure sensor needed changing and “bad way detection”Could you shed some light! Haven't done any work on it yet as reading forums there seems to be lots of possible issues. We looked at a new ABS pressure sensor from BMW who wanted £1800 quid just for the part as it's built into the pump! But I can purchase a second hand one for £150!

I have a 2013 f20 125i manual and for the last week has been jerking at roughly 3-4 revs. Doesn't do it all the time but pretty often and not in neutral only under load. Have had local mechanic plug it in but stored no codes. Feels like it's being starved for fuel that's the best way to describe it

I have a 220d msport I was driving on the motorway today at

I have a 220d msport I was driving on the motorway today at 70 mph approx when the car braked on its own down to about 40 mph!! No warning lights came on. After about 10 seconds everything returned to normal and I could once again accelerate normally. After about 2 minutes it did it again. And a minute after that it did it a third time. Quite scary! The car then returned to normal and I completed my journey. At no point did any warning lights come on and at no point did I touch the brake pedal. Any ideas????
