Exactly so. The sensors can fail gradually and can be voltage sensitive firing when battery is just slightly below par. It is an early indication that one is on the way out and will eventually fail hard. When it occurs turn off ignition, key out. Cycle the electronic handbrake to ensure that is reset and working. 5 minutes restart. It may clear. If not drive assuming that no of the assists work ABS ASR etc and ensure park brake disengaged. Get the sensors checked and close one avenue off.I had similar issue and replacing the battery did not help. The warning message came as soon as the car started. It turned out to be the ABS senor.
I have a few cars charging on CTEK through a smartplug so can easily turn them on and off from anywhere.
Definitely worth checking as my 2010 GranCabrio had a genuine Maserati AGM battery fitted from new, but I replaced it with a normal battery now. My CTEK has an AGM mode on it but doesn’t automatically switch to it and you have to switch it over from normal battery mode…annoying after power cuts too. If you have an AGM fitted and your charger doesn’t have that capability, that will damage the battery quite quickly.Will check, it’s a genuine one as put on by HRO

It does have temperature compensation, but as the temp sensor is inside the charger, it’s not really ideal. It needs to be next to the battery to really work. For anyone interested in what goes on in a Ctek might useful.I've have an MXS 10 with a temperature sensor, so it compensates depending on temperature.
If was March or April I would be an unhappy teddy, but with winter coming I drive the GC on a small number of occasions. I hope though that this is not the sign of things to come. Would be such a shame to see lots of these cars off the road due to lack of support on spares.If my car was going to be off the road for 3-4 months I think I would be seriously taking a chance with a second hand unit.
European Autospares FZCBarr Tech and a few others all saying no joy until Jan at earliest. Had a look on line, but all seem out out of stock. Where did you see Dicky?
