Hello,
I am new to this forum. I live in Germany. Bought my Emira 2 weeks ago. It now has 1500 km on the speedometer.
When I went on the "Autobahn" in rain suddenly yellow light went on ABS, ESC and the yellow Alert triangle. It's already in the Lotus garage in Hamburg. Has everyone else similar problems with the electricity? The Emira has got all new software prior to delivery. Thanks for any hints...
Thomas

Hamburg is well-equipped to deal with this and had much time getting to know all the quirks with the help of my car :D
Probably will just end up in a reset.
Should you need a new ECU you can have mine. It's scheduled to be installed next month, so enough time to get a new one

Thanks a lot for your answer? If I need a new ECU, then I can refer to you? Do you have your car in HH too at the moment? How can we both get together? Can I call you by phone? Greets Thomas

The "in the rain" part may be more relevant than you realize. Could be water in the wiring loom. Make sure you have the dealer check the wiring, particularly to the junction box under the front hood.

Thanks. Yes, I already told him that I was driving in heavy rain when the issue started... I hope he will check the wiring as you suggested. He told me, they are not allowed to do anything by themselves and have to ask lotus in England for orders. They seem to be very upset about their relationship to the lotus company... 😏

Thanks for your comment. I hope lotus will find the problem on my car. Unfortunately the garage cannot do anything without involving Lotus/England. This takes time... I try to stay optimistic...

Hi Tom, what was the issue in the end? I’ve the same now.. sticks around even after a battery disconnect. No DTCs thrown either.. :(

Hi. My Emira was brought to Sportivo Leipzig in october 23. They immediately found the reason for ABS and ESC issue. It was the magnetic ring for the ABS sensor at the left rear wheel that caused failure... It was replaced and from there on I never had problems again, but to tell the truth, in winter I don't use the car. But I hope the problem won't arise any more.

I’m glad you got it fixed quickly Tom and all issues help build a data base for faster repairs.
I’ve only had mine 3 months and it’ is always raining when I want to drive but so far no issues.

I figured or was probably a wheel sensor since the issue stuck this time.. had it in my early kilometers once bit vanished on itself.

Did you get your problem fixed?
It reset on my way to the dealer :cautious: Still went to get sw updated and errors read, but dealer hat internet troubles. Without internet Lotus Insight tool won’t do anything, not even read codes. Didn’t have time to get it checked again since
