hi im Kevin the car has picked up on a fault within electrical braking assist system that it believes may cause an issue .this the shuts the system down until fault is gone for a period of time of repaired .the only way to find the cause is to have car plugged in a fault codes read from abs system to pinpoint issue .the most common causes are failing parts like wheel speed sensors or brake light switch .the car is safe to drive if brakes still feel normal just be aware if you were to lock the brakes the car electrical system will not cut in abs system to assist
