sounds more to me like an ABS sensor failure.

 

HAve you done the dashboard trick and seen any particular errors on there?

turn your keys to the off position, press and hold the trip computer "reset" button if you have one. then turn your keys to the electrics only position, do not take your finger off the button. You should find that this leaves your miles traveled, but may reset the miles.

 

Then when it goes through and does its self tests, press the button to cycle through. You may find DTC's in there (random codes like D9001 or u9000 amongst others you may have P codes.

 

If you find any - let us know and we could help identify the problem...

Very odd, normally I would expect an error of some type to be there, but then again, the on board only queries certain codes.

 

Have you got / do you know of anyone who has a code reader? are you in a hurry to get the car fixed? if not, you could buy a code reader, which should give you more of an idea whats going on!

Hi Andy,

 

Well it depends, if you were to get bluetooth for your computer, you may benefit more, as the bluetooth would be useful for transfers from phone, or other enabled devices, its more portable and you can sit the laptop on youir driver seat, and move freely, or drive around with no interference.

 

The USB are also good, but you are limited to the length of the cable, and hoping that the cable doesnt get in your way whilst your tinkering!

seems like the issue has been resolved, if its not happening now, but I would expect the ABS light to be lighting up, not a system malfunction.

 

Have you got your code reader yet?

the c1288 is a circuit failure, that will illuminate at best a warning light when the error occurs, so if it was active, you would have an error light (either ABS or brake light). so I would guess its OK, but once you get the code reader, you can clear the codes, and check them regularly and see if the code comes back
