My 147 goes mental if left parked on an incline.
After work yesterday I was about to drive home, I turned the key in the ignition and the computer display displayed 'ABS Failure' and then 'ASR Failure'. I switched off the ignition and switched it back on but the same failures came up. Once I started driving and hit the brakes both of the failure warning lights turned off. This happened to me last year as well and the only thing that the two incidents had in common was that the car was parked on a slight incline. Has the ABS/Traction control system have some kind of gravity switch for want of a better word that monitors the angle at which the car is at and adjusts to suit the conditions??
