Another member posted this in other thread:
@umbrage said
"Received a call from the dealer: The issue is a "faulty ABS sensor".

It totally makes sense, given that if the computer can't read the movement of all four wheels, it shouldn't enable power steering, stability control, or give a speedometer reading. I'm sort of impressed that the solution is to just have the car drive like an old car, that doesn't have any fancy technology."
