ABS/VDC System Failure jammed brakes on!
ABS/VDC System Failure - a common fault with a variety of resolutions that I have read.
I get the fault on my 147 JTD sporadically and usually turning off the ignition and back on again tends to reset the system and temporarily resolves it.
However this morning when the warning beeped through the dash at me whilst traveling at about 40mph the brakes/ABS kicked in totally unexpectedly...hard, real hard!! and I was so unprepared that had I not been wearing my seat belt I would have definitely chinned myself on the steering wheel.
Now I've read about the fault but never have I read that the brakes came on by themselves???? Scared the bejeasus out of me. Anyone got a clue as to what/why this happened?
