Nev, that is also a possibility, I agree, though TBH I must confess I don't actually know how to deactivate it. I'd have to go look in the manual again. Never having been faced with having to fit snow chains, I've never bothered about this. Maybe I accidentally hit a button somewhere, but that would be a major coincidence that this should happen at the same time I just happened to have the deep water issue. I guess I'll never know for sure!
If you were "home" last weekend, you'll have experienced the awful weather we had down in the south of France last long weekend. I was in the Aix-en-Provence area with the car when this incident occurred. That's my current home base (where the car resides): I'm in Paris during the week, for work.
