Consumer has multiple problems: First, ABS locked up & wouldn't unlock until vehicle stopped. Dealer has changed every part they can think off, didn't have a clue to a remedy. Manufacturer said ABS was only used for emergency purposes. Second, problem involved brake fluid leaking. Dealer found a seal leaking, and put in a new master cylinder. Consumer picked vehicle up, and it didn't make it for 3 blocks. Front wheels locked up. Only thing that dealer had to say was sometimes they get bad parts. Consumer has more information to send in. Factory battery shorted out along with radio. The dash cluster, thermostat and housing on engie, crank sensor, both front rotors and calipers and steering gear box were replaced.
