On my drive into work this morning my brakes decided to apply themselves a couple of times :confused:. My foot was nowhere near the brake pedal at the time and the brakes just cut in for a second then released.
Has anyone else had this problem before or have I found a new fault :cheese:. None of the ABS or ASR warning lights came on (just the breaks).
Any helpful insights would be gratefully received.

Cheers
Dave

Sounds like VDC kicking in.

There was a specific pothole on a bend in a road that
almost always triggered my 147.

Hi Nev, Thanks for the info. Now of course the next question is what has gone wrong to start triggering the VDC? I have been happily travelling these same roads for ages and never had this problem. At the moment it is just a bit inconvenient but if it decides to do it while the roads are greasy life might get very interesting :)

Just had a browse upon the wonderful wide web and it appears that the VDC system was introduced in the facelift version. As my 147 is a 2001 model does it have actually have VDC or am I not reading the stuff on the web correctly?? :confused::confused:
