If your getting a ABS malfunction, "drive to workshop" you definitely need to take the car in, if the ABS light is on, this means that the ABS (anti-lock braking system) is not in operation. There should be some codes that a dealer could pull out, but I would not ignore this issue. However, the S-Class Mercedes from 92 to 99 (140 chassis) has a computer that if it senses a short, or grounding problem, can turn on the ABS check light as well as the Engine or OBD (On Board Diagnosis) check engine light. If this is the case, you can stop the car, turn off the engine, and restart the engine. If it is an intermittent fault code, the light will go out - at least for a while. However, if it is an ABS failure, the light will come back on immediately when you turn the key and not go out when the engine starts.

The average lead time for a tornado warning is 15 minutes. Sometimes you get more warning, sometimes less.

It all depends on the exact security warning.

You need to find out what the check engine light came on for. Have the computer scanned for codes. When certain errors occur that could damage the engine, sometimes the computer will just shut down the engine to prevent damage. That may be what happened to you.

Random web addresses and requests to go to websites could pop up, sometimes, it will just not turn on and also there may be a warning; another sign is your computer going slow or getting continaully frozen

The term "warning light" tells you that you need to check something out.

BEcause the Computer is generally programed to ignore the readings from the Lambda Sensor (Oxegen Sensor in North America) untilll the engine and the sensor warm up. Once this delay passes the computer realizes there is a fault.

Just have a quiet word to them and insure you are alone. Dont acuse them of bad driving.

It usually is an 'exclamation point' ( ! ), but also sometimes a bell, which simply means that the computer in your car is preventing the wheels from screeching, or more importantly, preventing you from spinning out.

A virus can cause a computer to shut down without warning. When the computer is low on battery, the computer will also shut down.

Which lights are they is it the check engine abs and brake lights? If so its the transmission ouput speed sensor that needs to be replaced. Inexpensive unless you continue to drive it and blow the transmission. good luck

There is an electircal switch that 'senses' when the emergency brake lever is applied and lights a warning light on the dashboard to keep you from driving in this condition. This switch may be faulty or out of adjustment, causing the warning light on the dashboard to turn on.
