According to officials, the Maserati Stability Program (MSP) also controls the ABS brakes but these aren’t affected by the glitch. The problem is due to a bug in the MSP’s software management. A spokesman told News reporters the “traction control will trip out” if the battery gets below a certain level.
Owners shouldn’t be worried about their brakes failing or the cars suddenly becoming uncontrollable. If the MSP should cut out, a warning light will appear on the dash and according to officials it’s still safe to continue driving temporarily.
