Once I turned and started the vehicle again, the module and sensors did a reset and the lights and messages then disappeared.

He recommended to drive the coach around for a while and see if it occurs again, then to bring it in.

He didn't say anything about it possibly going into limp mode.

Dealer is 90 miles from my location so we plan on going camping next week close to the dealership just in case it happens again before we venture out farther away in it.
Sounds right - most temporary problem lights/conditions will clear after the third restart.

Default ABS Warning

I just purchased my 2014 ERA Sprinter it had been sitting for several months when I picked it up and I noticed the ABS warning lights when I was driving it home. My mechanic told me the sensor on one tire was showing 4000 RPM while sitting still. I have also read in this forum that a firm brake can reset and correct the warning.

Well it happen again, ESP, traction, ABS warning messages and cruise control not functioning. Called service department and got her in. They replaced both rear wheels sensors. When the service advisor informed me that was the issue, I mentioned to him that the wheel sensors were covered under the emission control warranty and he said he didn't think so. Told him it was in the emission control warranty book and he said he would check it out.

When he brought out the Era and gave me the keys, he stated he didn't know it was covered and didn't understand why it was; told him I didn't either but was sure glad it was.

Another example of the value of these forums which gives us the information we need and helps us make sure we don't pay for something we are not suppose to pay for.

Thank you all!😃👍
