I had this problem after the dealer serviced the car! They couldn't fix it despite several tries so I was stuck with the fault. Then I remembered I had the same fault in my previous XM model but it would reset on engine re-start. On that car it usually happened after a full left or right steering lock combined with hard braking when maneuvering in tight car parks. I figured that if this caused the problem then maybe it could also cure it. I tried it in a safe place, alternating left and right lock with abrupt braking. It didn't seem to clear the fault but after a 15 minute trip to the shopping centre I was surprised to find that the fault was gone when I re-started the engine! I have not had this problem in over a year now despite living with it for over three weeks at the time.
