The flashing LIM light comes on in my 320d BMW and speed reduces significantly. Why and how do I stop that?

Asked by Dec 20, 2014 at 07:51 PM about the BMW 3 Series

Question type: General

While driving my new 320d the car suddenly slowed tonight and a flashing LIM light appeared on the dash. After about 20+ seconds speed resumed and the light stayed on but stopped flashing. This occurred at a few roundabouts. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Showing 3 series in question, is that right?

You should check for stored codes in the cars computer, although it sounds like a bad ABS speed sensor.
