I ask because I am getting a control system failure message after spinning the wheels trying to get out of snow, with DSC/DTC fully deactivated.
Hopefully the car has just become completely confused. After a period of time it has decided that the rear wheels can't really have done 1/2 a mile more than the front ones (or something equally daft) and that in fact the sensors on the front wheels have failed.
Having seen a few cars go on a dyno, they got horribly confused in what are basically very similar conditions. After running properly again without all that "wheelspin" the system can see that actually all is well and reset itself.
Hopefully it is this and not an actual failure.
