ABS and ASR dash lights on Printer

Has anyone experienced loss of ABS or ASR braking systems,plus loss of cruise control on MB Sprinter? We had the dash icons come on shortly after feeling a few significant-feel bumps as we drove along smooth roads. What is the likely diagnosis?

yes - had that in my Solera. Turned out to be a wheel sensor.
I was hesitant to continue driving; actually not a big problem , the big issue no ABS brakes. Do we really need them?
ABS light and more..

That happed a few times when I had to go over the rumble strip along the edge of the highway.
The sensor picks up the tire vibration and the sensor is accidently active.

It will reset after a few miles or after the ignition is turned of and back on a few times.

This is an MB sprinter issue, not the same as for your unit. It's important to understand that questions sometimes are vehicle specific. Just sayin'

Mercedes tech need to check your ABS sensors.
ABS systems do basically the same thing no matter what brand.
They have sensors at each wheel that goes to a computer and adjusts accordingly.
The only thing I was bringing up is sensors can vibrate when the wheel hits something like rumble strips and cause a fault that the computer senses. If all is good it will rest like in my case.

Obviously if the light stays on or comes back again under normal driving It is time to take it to Mercedes.
You can read about the light on page 181 in your owners manual.

Before checking the ABS sensors, check the code that set off the lights in the first place. My ABS/ASR lights came on and cruise quit, just like yours, due to a faulty brake light switch on the brake pedal. I'm sure there are other triggers as well. Get a code reader or take it to a tech.
