Two or three times IIRC when getting into the car I have seen in the DIC the message "Service Steering Lock" this appears sometimes before the message about "Fully charged" or "Charge complete at xx:xx" and once when I powered on the car with the "Blue button". When the car is on and you twiddle the knob to see messages there are none.

Has this happened to you?

Yes this happend to me and at the time I couldn't move the gear shift.
The delivery of the car had been delayed for 5days due to a water leak In the passenger footwell and didn't know if it had anything to do as the garage had stripped out the car to sort.

Yes I have seen this once, I assume that the steering lock was unable to engage (which can happen if the steering is in a certain position) I was able to clear the message by moving the steering wheel a fraction and re-powering on the car.

I've just had this. I found that I had to turn everything off, get out, lock the car, then unlock it and it worked fine.

Seems like a common issue..

I phoned MyAmpera but that's just the AA and they were clueless
