WHILE DRIVING THE CAR, THE DASH SYMBOLS VSC, ABS AND THE (!) TURNED ON AND THE CAR STARTED TO BEEP INSIDE. ALARMED AT WHAT WAS HAPPENING, I HIT THE BRAKES TO FIND THAT THEY WERE NOT WORKING AND THERE WAS NO RESISTANCE WHEN PUSHING DOWN ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. I WAS IN A PARKING LOT WHEN THIS HAPPENED AND HAD TO SWERVE TO AVOID HITTING PEOPLE WALKING AROUND. AFTER A MINUTE OR 2 OF COASTING I WAS APPROACHING A DEAD END AND CHOSE TO LITERALLY STAND ON MY BRAKES WHICH DIDN'T IMMEDIATELY STOP THE CAR. AFTER STANDING ON THE BRAKES WITH MY FULL WEIGHT, THE CAR SLOWLY CAME TO A ROLLING STOP WHERE I PROCEEDED TO PUT THE CAR IN PARK AND TURN IT OFF.
