If you mean the yellow triangular light in the speedo then it would be normal to lose power whilst that light is lit.

Were you cornering or accelerating too fast? either that or a bad sensor could cause that light to be lit.

Usually, this light indicates a loss of traction in one or more wheels. Remember, it is all wheel drive...

That really sucks in those cars. When after quite a long search I found ice-covered parking lot (not too many of them in California) and started having some fun, the yellow light come on and while I was keeping the gas pedal on the floor to continue side-skidding the (**&^&(*((* computer cut me off and let the engine idle.
Smart A**

called MB hotline and they say there is no override.
