This is a pure guess, but was the ICE starting when the Red Triangle of Death came on? If the engine stumbles, it could cause this error. Were any codes captured?

Does the 2004 have the same inverter cooling system as the G2s? If so, the coolant pump could be getting ready to take a dive. I that's so, the pump will be pretty noisy and you can hear it easily.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Oddly, the problem was simply that the oil level was a bit low. Apparently, the link to the warning light chirping while braking may have been more related to the fact that the nose of the car was pointing downhill while decelerating.

thanks again

FutureGlyph - anything more come out of your Master Warning Light and "Problem"?


I have a 2007 with 126k and mine just did this recently. Each time the master warning light would come on momentarily and the message "Problem" would come on the multifunction display. No other lights or message came on. This happened 6 times today (I'll be calling my dealership service tomorrow). But all six times I was in the process of braking. It didn't happened every time I hit the brakes but that was the only times it happened. The car seems to run fine otherwise. I'm about 3800 miles into my 5000 mile oil change cycle.

Check your engine oil level.
