suddenly, this morning, several warning lights came on (ASR, Parking Brake, Tyre Deflation and Eco) and cruise control not working. Ran diagnostic and it said repairs needed.
The Parking brake works fine but no indication on the touch screen appears.
The ASR button lights up and stays lit.

Car starts fine and runs well apart from no cruise control/speed limiter. Thought it may be something like a fuse or just the sensors but no details of a fuse in manual.

Sounds like a faulty ABS sensor .Should show if diagnostic scan carried out . Not a major job if sensor at fault but needs identifying which one is causing the problem .

Thank you. My local garage should be able to sort hopefully. As long as I don't have to go to main dealership. They charge the earth.

Local independent garage should be able to handle it fine and avoid dealership prices .

Taken to garage. They ran diagnostics and it came up with ABS Sensor which they replaced but still no joy. Still trying to fathom it out. Thought it may have been wheel bearing but cancelled that. It's causing quite a problem.

You may have a fault in the wiring harness . This explains the faults similar to what you have and the cause on the same car but may be an earlier model , not sure but best I can find at the moment . It might help your garage ,

Thank you.
Maybe have better luck at Auto electrical guys and hopefully not be expensive. I can live with it for a while if I have to or til I can afford to get it in .
Found a good one on you tube about resetting the ecu too.
Thanks again.

Rebooting SOMETIMES works , hope it turns out to be something fairly minor . Cars used to be relatively easy to fix but with todays components , not so without the proper diagnostic equipment .
