This happened last week while driving back from office. I love to drive my linea more as it already covered 40k on the odo and the engine more free than my punto 90hp which had run only around 6k even though both of them share the same mechanical heart. 3-4 days before the front brakes started to make a strange GRRR.. sound from the left side. Acts fine when the pads are cold ie it starts to make sound after around 15km drive with normal braking in between. No warning sign have come up till now or am I wrong thinking that there is some WARNING SIGN to show that the pads are nearing replacement?. Anyway.. while driving back I was slowed down due a due to a small pile up of the cars in front of me moving slowly over the “continuous small humps”. This road is having a lot of them and usually I don’t slow down for it. But tat day I had to slow down and when I was about to start over the humps one bike fellow over took from the left and was about to cut to the right in front of me and abruptly slowed seeing the humps due to which I too had to slam my brakes. As tat humps were having little sand in between them, the braking was not smooth. The tire was locking and moving in between and I got a bit scared too and that @$$ rider also got scared hearing my tyre sound. Luckily nothing happened but the MID suddenly showeh “ABS unavailable” warning. I pulled over waited to check if it will go by itself. Then I switched off and restarted 2-3 times and still it was showing. But when I restarted again it went off. I called up one service executive and he told something weird which I cannot DIGEST. He told tat “Tat warning will come if the rear wheel bearing about to go kaput”.. Plz shed some light on tat guys. What I believe is tat Either the ABS sensors have been disabled sensing that my pad is already worn out. The ABS sensors got some false input when front tires was locking and releasing abruptly and the rear wheels were acting normally. The car was acting fine when I checked with some hard braking(not too hard to activate the ABS normally) later. Anyway I am going to change the pads soon. I want to know if linea got “PAD WORN OUT” warning light also.. Thanx..
