Default V50 Brake Failure stop safely message

Hi

Has anyone else had the "Brake failure stop safely" message? - popped up on my V50 after it also showed Anti-Skid service required- then lost all power - luckily coasted into a lay-by!. waited a few minutes and it started okay!.
Breakdown came and plugged computer in and showed no message codes??
thanks

I had this happen to me. After looking through previous threads, I found out the CEM unit was at fault. The solution that worked for me was to remove the unit out of the car and use electrical contact cleaner on the CEM unit as well as the connections in the car.
That was 6 months ago, still going fine.

Generic readers may not pick up codes from BCM, atleast mine doesnt. Some codes only appear when I connect VIDA+DiCE. Not saying thats in your case, but you could double check if you know someone with Vida.

Brake failure message could be your BCM failing, get it hitched up to Vida.

BCM, Brake control module aka ABS unit, CEM aka Central Electronic Module is the brain under the glovebox. The CEM can get water in then if the sunroof leaks in or the bottom of it gets kicked loose by the passenger. If you can, get the car hooked up to VIDA diagnostics for a solution.

It happened to me. Pulled over to investigate. Stopped car and wouldn't start again. Lots of dashboard lights and wipers coming on. Seemed terminal.
I couldn't see anything obvious and started looking for breakdown number.
Tried starting again and it ran with no problem. It never happened again in the following 2-3 years that I owned it.?
A random electrical fault.
