    This morning, I took my CS for an exercise as usual, after a week break. When I started the car, a yellow warning sign lighted up. I was driving for five minutes before pulling over. Then, I restarted once again, this time that sign never come up. So I keep driving for another half an hour on race mode, without anything wrong I believe.

    Anyone please tell what was happening to my car? Do I need to visit the dealer as manual said??....or it's just a fault signal to censors!

    Cheers, Kenny

    There is probably a fault with the sensor on the suspension. It could be a suspension problem, but more like the sensor is the problem.
    This happens occasionally with mine as well, but I have chosen to ignore it, since I know for certain there isn't a suspension problem.
    Typically mine only lights up when I have a full tank of gas and I go over a rough bit of road.

    I'd get it checked out with an SD/2. It could be as simple as an vertical acceleration sensor. There are 3 of these (two front and one rear) but you'll need to get it scanned to find out what is really going on.

    Mine did this too- it was after the car spent 2+ hours driving down the road, ABS sensors lit up as did this. I turned the car off, started it back up and never saw it again.

    I have some service records that indicate that $8000+ was spent on the suspension to aleviate this problem of the ASR light, so I don't intend on fixing it again if it breaks. I'll just have some upgraded suspension put on and toss the stock stuff.

    I had this warning light on most of the time. Checked at Ferrari Centre, they said it was a malfunction of the sensor of the suspension. Will fix it tomorrow and hope this will kill the sign.

    Update: Driving mine again on Sunday, everything is perfect. Seeming like no more false signal to sensor.

    my 355 would do this after sitting for an extended period of time. It would always go away after turning off the car and re-starting.

    Hey Kenny

    no I actually had my 355 for a short period of time and only put about 800 miles on her. I did love it though, sold it to a great guy in NY :)
