These have a lot of problems with the ignition coils. In darkness look at the coils for any signs of stray spark. If stray spark is present the coils need to be replaced. Note- Use extreme caution around moving engine parts! Do not attempt this if you cannot do so safely.
Give me an update and we'll continue as necessary.

You said you changed the ecm module, is that the ecm or the ignition module. Do you have access to a scanner to check cranking rpm? That way you can test the new crank sensor and the wiring and the ignition module.

SOURCE: bmw 316 ABS light stays on
Your ABS systems use a combination of electronic and hydraulic systems to modulate the brakes individually to prevent them from locking up. Antilock systems consist of wheel speed sensors, a hydraulic control unit (HCU), and an electronic control unit (ECU). Because of how complex the system is your computer does a self-test. If the check is successful, the ANTILOCK and BRAKE lights will go out within a few seconds. If one or more of the component of the ABS system fails to pass one or both lights will remain lit, the system will shut down and set a code. The code itself does not tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on.
Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!
