Well randomly my ABS light comes on and my fun button lights up as well (traction control button) lol. I took it to schucks and they only have a code reader for engine lights has this happened to anyone else or does anyone know what the hell is going on its getting pretty annoying!

I know another guy posted similar...but it was exactly the same as mine but thread kinda died off with no answer...I always run my car with the trac. Off so its always lit but if I haul ass from first to like the top of 2nd and slam the brakes my abs lights up

make sure there isnt crap stuck to the magnet in the end of the sensor, you will be surprised what builds up around it.

As far as your "fun button" goes, the ABS controls the trac cont, so If the ABS light stays on it turns off the ABS system which will turn off trac cont. Other than the annoying light, it won't affect your brakes other than you won't have the antiloc system on, as long as its an electrical problem. Your brakes should otherwise work fine. If they don't, its not electrical. Only thing you can do is check the sensors and wires for breaks and cleanliness like everyone said. If you don't find anything, you will have to get the codes read. Each component will set off a different code, so you won't be guessing which one it is.
