Hello my name is Rehan
Hi Rehan I hope you are well. I’m sorry to hear all these functions aren’t working and I totally understand how frustrating this is. Can you confirm for me that all these warning lights are showing on the dashboard?
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Ok so these systems are all interlinked because they work on a network and share information in order for them all to work correctly. This is a very effective way for them to work but the downside to this is if a fault is detected in one of these systems it causes all of them to turn off. The car will need to be connected to a capable scan tool to see exactly what’s triggering the warnings

Ok I have booked it with MG dealer let’s see what co
We out ?
Correct
The most common causes would be something like a failing wheel speed sensor

Wheel speed sensor? Where it is located? Actually speedo meter working fine
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Showing correct speed of the car
It’s separate from the Speedo. There are 4 wheel speed sensors and they are located in the hub on each wheel are read the individual wheel speed from a pickup on the bearing

Thank you for your informative reply actually those EV cars still on experimental process let’s see what diagnosis says I will let the garage know what you described to me
No worries. The technology inside is not quite as experimental as you wouldn’t think. The systems you are having issues with have been on the road through various manufacturers for around 10-15 years it’s the auto-brake and adaptive cruise are the newest features but other manufacturers have been using them with long and short range radars for around 10 years. It started in real high end vehicles and has now filtered down to being mandatory in all new vehicles
