Sporadic ABS Light on Brera 3.2

After driving a friends Brera, I decided to bite the bullet and buy a Brera of my own. I came across a 3.2 automatic in excellent condition and virtually brand new. It's a 2007 model and has only 5000miles on the dash. Needless to say, I love it.

Problem is now though that every now and again the ABS light keeps coming up (usually after accelerating from the spot every morning). The light stays on all the way to work. Happens as well when I drive home but less common. I also get a electronic brake distribution warning. Funny thing is, my friends Brera had the exact same problem!

I know it can be fixed under warranty so not too worried but should this be happening on such a newish car with low miles? Does anyone know what is causing the fault?

Re: Sporadic ABS Light on Brera 3.2

For any of you out there with a similar brake problem on the V6 Brera/159/Spider, I just discovered there is a Brake Booster problem which affects several models.

brought my car into Mangoletsi and they fixed it. the official fault is known as the "Brake Booster Recall Campaign 5338" as stated on my receipt.

what they do is they change the Electropump, Brake hose, Electro Cable and Control Unit.my brake pedal no longer crashes back violently when coming to a standstill and the ABS light/EBD warning no longer comes on. The brake pedal also no longer feels stiff on cold start-up. All these symptons are associated with the problematic brake booster.

just thought I would pass on my experiences to help anyone else with a similar problem in the future.
