    I was driving in EV mode today and heard several chimes and something flashed on the MFD, too fast to see it. I assume it was some sort of error message. Hasn't repeated yet. Has anyone else had this happen? Can the dealer read this out?

    Unfortunately, that's all I got for now. Maybe I pushed a button on the steering wheel by mistake. I'll have the dealer check for error codes when I take it in for the next service.

    I figured out it was the pre-collision system warning. For whatever reason, it triggered for a fraction of a second.

    You know the 1st few times I brought the car into the garage it gave me the warning sign when I got near the wall. Now not at all. Does the car learn that this wall is expected?
