On occassion, my Message Center notes "Service Traction Control", and "Trac Off" and ABS dash lights come on. When car is restarted, lights go off and stay off, but every once in awhile will come back on. Does not seem to be related to outside temp, or driving conditions, and brakes seem to work just fine. Car has approx 80K miles; last service indicated brake work would be needed soon. Are the two related, and what would be the approx cost of repair?

Retrieving, diagnosing, and repairing any ABS system faults will be necessary to keep the light off. A common fault with ABS systems are the wheel speed sensors, stored codes may confirm this.
