The pendulum in the spool can't tell the difference between that, a hill, and a real need to lock up. Did it fix itself? I could induce this fairly regulary in my c900 by stopping quickly - it's inconvenient when I'm rolling up to a car accident to try to get out, and the seatbelt has me held tight. After the first couple of times, I knew to expect it. But, I could make it happen on demand. > Has anyone else here had this problem?
