Take it to a dealer. I'd only take it to the dealer if it happens again. Its usually a dirty earth connector or similar.

I had an erratic ABS light, got my dealer to investigate and they diagnosed and replaced a suspect wheel sensor under warranty, been ok since.

I had that, ignored it and never came back in 9 months, had a coolant temp warning too, when the engine was stone cold, that too went away. Still a FIAT remember! Better... but still a FIAT! (y)

Lmao... yes maybe Chris... but its STILL got a FIAT badge not a Bosch badge.

I love my GP and will have another unless the Bravo starts to float me boat, which it doent... yet. The GPS is the only car I have ever thought that I would have another. I need to get out more! Or test drive a 150 Mjet Bravo?

Get it checked,first make sure body computer update has been carried out then as Sledge said get them to carefully check connections.
