BMW (1996) e36 318i ABS fault. The ABS fault light stays on which means that the ABS system is deactivated. The diagnostic check when the car was serviced was that the front left brake sensor was faulty and so we had this replaced however when the fault is reset on the onboard computer it comes back on after driving a short distance. The workshop (not BMW) says the ECU is at fault. Could this problem not be one of the 2 ABS relays in the fuse box?

After that point the abs brakes are inoperative for the rest of the day. Before that point they work perfectly (tested in the snow). The garage has already replaced a wheel sensor but to no avail.
