Stabilitrak and ABS lights come on but car is running fine

\015 The Stabilitrak and ABS light comes on sometimes right away when started other times after 10-15 min. or longer into my drive. The Car seems to be running fine other than the lights coming on. I've checked my brake fluid level to be sure it wasn't that. Is there anything else I can check before taking it in for service?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Nope, but take it in. Brake problems are nothing to fool with They'll probabl tell you it's the ABS ECU. Not a cheap item.. However, it only affects the ABS system, not the brakes itself.

My dashboard doesnt work. Everything is on zero. The car runs fine and starts fine but I have no idea how fast Im going or how much gas I have left. The service engine soon light is on and the ABS light. When this first started it would occasionally happen and both lights would come on but then for no obvious reason the dash would work again and just the service engine light would stay on. I have had this to five different repair shops and no one has any ideas on how to fix it.

So, My 2007 chevy aveo was running fine...then the check engine light comes on and the hold light begins to flash. The car runs fine. However, when I stop and begin to accelerate, the car will kinda "jump" when it shifts to 2nd and 3rd gear (i have an automatic, by the way). Later the hold light stopped flashing and it changed gears perfectly, but the check engine light remained on. What's going on???
