Possible cause of traction loss warnings


Feb 19, 2016
United States
I've seen a lot of you have problems with loss of traction control warnings, along with loss of EAP, loss of regen, and loss of emergency braking. I've had it happen to me several times myself, and it always goes away after parking the car and letting it sit awhile.

I've determined WHEN it happens, but maybe y'all can help figure out WHY.

During some recent renovations at my house, I had to park on the lawn. There was a slight, very slight, lip coming off the driveway onto the lawn. When I retrieved my car, I had the warning messages. Then yesterday, I was at a small parking lot and I saw that my front left tire was slightly off the blacktop, onto the grass. Sure enough, when I started the car, I had the warning messages. What is it about parking on uneven surfaces that could cause this? Surely the car is more robust than this, right? How can a little bit of off-road parking cause such a fuss?
