I had my brakes done about a month ago. Haven't had any problems since. I just had my routine oil change done and a pcv valve changed and now my ABS light and Traction off light keep coming on and off every few days. I read up a little bit on both, but have no idea what the issues could be. Any one know anything?

    RepairPal has some content on these lights:

    http://repairpal.com/abs-warning-light
    http://repairpal.com/traction-control-warning-light

    That may help. It's possible that if the recent work done on your car involved your wheels or your brakes that a wheel speed sensor may have been damaged or affected. It's probably more likely that the fault is a coincidence. You need the trouble code causing the lights, and then you can narrow down the problem.
