    Mine did the same thing yesterday and I was going to post about it but you beat me to it. I took a really hard turn 2 days before the lights came on so maybe that's what caused it. I turned the car off and pumped the brakes and it was still on when I cranked the car but went off 1o minutes later and has yet to come back on. Let me know what you find so I can fix mine as well.

    I've overlooked this problem on mine for a while now (pretty much since I got my last set of wheels). I will check the sensors, but I'm not going to jump through hoops over it. I have bigger issues to tackle at the moment.

    would one of those be getting your leg strong enough to push the clutch in

    For a while it was, and it pissed me off like you wouldn't believe. Doing better now, I can take a short drive without hurting too bad. Still can't run without looking all gimpy haven't had the time or money to take care of the power steering issue, and its about time for tires and alignment

    Just so y'all know, the lights don't come on for no reason.

    ABS/Traction/red Brake light will all illuminate if there is an ABS problem.

    The traction control will come on if there is a wheel speed sensor issue (most common problem, when the lights come on), since the TC won't work if there is an ABS issue. (usually a wheel speed sensor problem. If you can get the codes read, and it says something like RF(or whatever wheel) signal problem (or dropping out, or not there, or erratic signal), then I can almost garantee that the problem is a bad sensor, and the fix it to replace the hub assembly, since that is where the sensor/tone ring is.) For the back axles it is different, but that rarely is the problem.

    The TCS/ABS/red brake light will illuminate if there is a wheel speed sensor problem, and it usually comes on after you get over ~5 MPH. The ABS/TRAC control module needs to know what all the wheel speeds are to adjust all y'all's throttle when you get on it, since you don't have enough sense to get out of it when the back tires spin LOL.

    So glad I don't have TCS, my right foot is my traction control.
