Hi folks,

I tracked my car last week and at the end of the day i got "brakepads worn" alert and had them changed (discs, pads, sensors etc.) and when i got it back from my local workshop, the PASM warning lit up. It says "PASM failure" and I can't turn on sport mode on. When I try to, i see "Sport Mode Failure". When I start the engine without moving, everything seems to work fine but as i move like couple of feets the warning comes back again. The suspension stiffens and engine dynamics runs in non-sport mode.

We checked it with PIWIS, in fault codes it says "FR shock absorber" . We took out the FR wheel and looked for the connections and it was ok. We took out the ABS sensor and cleaned it, erase the faulty codes but no help.

Any suggentions ? Before the brakes changed everything was in working order.

I doubt it has anything to do with the change of pads/discs.

I think it is just as the tester says, something wrong with your front shock absorber or its module.

Just my opinion
