I encountered my first problem with this trick today. I turned the key while driving to disable the ESP and all four brakes locked down. Not a fun experience.

I have used this trick quite a few times, and never had a problem before this. I would guess that I was going at just the right speed or doing something else just right and HAL thought I was sliding when the ESP module reset so it applied the breaks.

No long term ill effects, but I'm sure I just reduced the life expectancy of my breaks and had I been doing something other than going relatively slow in a straight line, having my breaks lock unexpectedly could have been all bad.

Wow! My car does not do the disable with the key so this does not apply to me. But this could be really scary!
