Another Motor control System Failure, but with a twist
Lately I have been having random warning messages coming up on my 147.
“Motor control system failure” on about three occasions in the last few weeks, which seemed to be triggered when I put on the headlight main beam. I have also had “VDC failure” and “ABS failure” messages also at random. Strangely the VDC message is most apparent when I turn right over a slight bump into my drive??.
Even more strange is the central locking; with the fob it occasionally refuses to do anything (same with my spare key) and I have to lock or unlock the car manually.
I had it checked by my local Indi, but apparently it did not show any problems. They suggested it might be one of the Lambda sensor rear of the cat or possibly the ‘body computer’. I suggested the battery as has been indicated on this forum, but they didn’t think so. They thought the central locking problem was unrelated.
Can anybody tell me what single item is likely to link all these problems; the only one I can think of is the battery, but the indicator on it is showing green and it turns over ok?
