First Problem…AVH system failure...

Hi guys, this week the California has shown its first problem. Every time i start the car on the screen appears AVH system failure, then Park off and Park on and then its completely fine… What is AVH? and should i be concerned?

I have never even sat in a California but I suggest the owners manual would be your first and best source of information.

Automatic Vehicle Holding. It is the electronic parking brake system. Like Brian said, the OM explains how it works, but it is probably just telling you the parking brake is on.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Taz- It has never done this before first time, and i did some research in some other ferrari forum's and this has happened to several people with California's. Some even have had AVH,CST and Manetinno failure all together. Some say its the battery , that its giving to much charge when you start the car and i think this is the problem because a while back ago i left the battery go dead and the dealer didn't change it on recharge it and said it was the original battery and its not 100%...
