Cry Like A Baby vdc system failure car brakes itself

Hi my gt jtd brings up vdc system failure and when driving along car brakes itself!! Not good! recently took it to a garage who connected up to computer and code it brought up when it was checked out apparently yaw sensor connected to abs system. Told this could b a 4 figure sum ouchAny ideas, read a bit on form re battery being changed but think could b beyond this n serious!!! sigh.car is only 6 years old too.

Firstly hows the tracking, if its out get it tracked.
Once its tracked you'll need to recalibrated the Yaw sensor, this can be done using fiatECUscan.

Or pop yourself over to GUS at alfatuner in st.helens, he might be a little trek away but he knows his stuff... Hes also a memebr on this forum...
