Genuine BMW ABS Main Relay - Tomatenrot - 61361393404 - E36 & Z3
Genuine BMW # 61361393404, replaces the original Tomato Red relay
This part is listed by BMW as BMW part number 61361393404 (61 36 1 393 404) and is described as Genuine BMW ABS Main Relay, "Tomatenrot", which is a very German way of saying "Tomato Red". That's the color this ABS Main relay was original. The replacements are likely not red now (they were black most recently) but the Tomato Red is likely what your orginal ABS relay is colored, if your BMW uses this part number.
This relay was used on many E36 3 Series models, including the E36 M3 as well as the E36/7 chassis Z3 roadster/coupe models (except the S54 models, which this relay is not used on). This relay can be found on 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999 E36 models as well as 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 model Z3 - **Note: not for S54 MZ3 models.
This is the main relay of the ABS system, and its purpose is for over-voltage protection for the ABS. When this relay goes bad, it can take down your BMW's ABS system, causing an ABS fault and the traction control / ABS light to come on in the instrument cluster. The fix for a faulty ABS relay is to replace with new, and this original BMW relay makes for an easy fix as it's located in the main fuse / relay box.
