Sounds like fuel pressure drops off, fuel pump is weak, you would need a fuel pressure gauge connected when it stalls to check this

There are two types of tire pressure control systems. The simpler and cheaper one compares the average rotational speed of all four wheels, which is already measured by the anti-lock system. If pressure is low on one tire, the tire will bulge and sit a bit deeper on the road. The effective radius / circumference is smaller, and so the average rotational ...

A knocking noise when braking (or during less noticeable maneuvers) can be attributed to worn front suspension parts - especially control arm bushings. The image below is from some random heavily worn lower control arm bushings. As you can see, the rubber wears out and the connector in the middle is free to wiggle and knock around. Using your brakes puts ...

It is unlikely to be caused by a rotten brake dust shield, if the knocking is repetitive with a frequency that alters with speed, that would suggest that it's source is something that is rotating. Perhaps a badly warped brake disk?

According to the OP's last comment, the rattle was due to a broken crankshaft. I will add one thing though. When I was a kid, my father had a '91 Mitsubishi Pajero that suddenly had its crankshaft snap in two. He was able to drive it to the dealership with a rattling noise that was present regardless of clutch position or RPM. With regards to the OP's ...

You need to read out the ECM/ECU for the trouble codes from the OBD interface. The ABS light will go on for the following reasons: Defective ABS module Defective ABS sensor on a wheel Low battery power(this will cause the weirdest error codes) Brake pad sensors defective or worn brake pads Wiring harness problem. Corroded plugs Read error(probably fixable ...

If this is an E39 or E60 chassis, you should be able to use GT1/DIS or INPA to probe the computer and figure out what is setting the ABS light. There are a bunch of possibilities that might cause this, including: lack of wheel speed sensor signal failed seals in the ABS unit failed solders (usually microscopic cracks) that prevent the solenoids from ...

The ABS light is an indicator of an error caught by the ECU. It usually is an error for a defective ABS sensor or a related brake issue. It's difficult to tell what exactly it is without reading the error code. Some specific problem might be fixed by reprogramming the ABS module, others won't. Depends on the issue and the year of your 528i. Once you get the ...

Kaseys answer sounds right to me. There is a sensor, that indicates the vehicles inclination relative to the road (I don't know how to call it either, in Germany we simply call it "headlight leveling sensor"). That sensor needs to be replaced probably. I'd just like to add two pictures, so you can see how the sensor looks like: Image source: ...
