    Got lucky with being in a good place to stop both times. Made it happen a third in a parking lot. Curious to know if others have had this happen.

    Wait, you made these alerts happen? How? By cutting your brake lines?

    No, unless there's something not weird going on, like you know what's up, this is a 'call the rollback (flatbed)' issue.

    Wait, what do you mean 'both times'?!!

    So, it is on the way to the SC and I'm waiting for them to call me. The alerts would go away and car would work fine, but come back after around three presses of the brakes when driving. I made some small circles in an open parking lot without cars near me. I got it to come back and that's what made me decide to not drive it. I'll keep you all updated... I was hoping someone out there knew something in the meantime as I was waiting to get it towed.

    Good luck! I might have seen that in a thread where it turned out to be a loose ground? But who knows how long it takes them to figure that out!

    I had the same thing, turned out to be a fully ABS sensor that they replaced.

    I guess that is supposed to be "faulty ABS sensor" - but I would think such a sensor problem could cause these types of messages (but without necessarily making it unsafe to drive); still, to err on the side of caution, a tow is probably wise...

    I have seen this type of error problem in other cars when one component of the traction control system fails to report within range to the computer. If you stand hard on the brake pedal and it doesn't sink I would drive the car. It's usually a simple fault that prevents the automation from performing the stability control function. Our BMW lit up the same way with a list for errors when the car lost drive power to the front wheels. The car was safe and once repaired the computer was happy and the error messages went away.

    I have multiple videos of this happening. While depressing the brake pedal, it would shudder like ABS. The harder I pressed the quicker and more intense the pulses. Lots of sounds coming from the front dash too, like an electricity hum.

    That stinks that the ETA is that far out. Stay safe. I'd ask them to give a loaner.
