The ABS and/or Traction Control Light May Illuminate on Saab 9-3

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) and/or traction control light may illuminate. This can be caused by corrosion in the (ABS) wire harness connector at the right front wheel speed sensor due to water intrusion.  Corroded connectors should be cleaned or replaced as necessary to correct this concern.

Anti lock brake failure traction control failure stability control failure. I've had it into the dealership 5 times and still not fixed. GM won't back there product and is still making me try to have the dealership service it. I don't seem to have much faith that they will fix my issue.
