The last three days I have had a strange one while coming home from work, It has happened in exactly the same place on all three counts, Radio goes off and voice says there is a problem with the sensors and warning light on dash saying sensor fault, also shows the wheel as missing on the other display.
Five miles down the motorway it corrects itself
Hasn't happened on the way to work just on the way home, Strange coincidence or what
What is the cause for this problem and is there a cure.
I have read here that the sensors are located outside the car under the wheel arches; because of that, they take quite a bashing if you drive hard through big puddles or flooded roads. Obviously, they may return to normal after a while but if you look at the tyres and they are ok, then just ignore them for a while. They may call them a safety feature but are they really? If you check tyres with an old-fashioned pen-type guage, you know they are ok.
As someone said above, if it tells you your wheels are missing but the car is going well, there is a fair chance it is telling you fibs
