Default ABS and Traction off lights are on

My Traction off lights and ABS lights are on. I don't know what happened to it. The only thing I did was replace the airmix actuator under the glove compartment. I was thinking maybe something else came loose but I checked all the lines and wires and connections. All of them are in place. Did my EBCM break all of a sudden?

a bad speed sensor on a hub can cause this to.

I get them on every now and then too, out of the blue when I'm driving on the highway. Usually goes away pretty fast. Car rides different without the traction control.

Im sure there are many here that really like TC & ABS.
I am really surprised to hear that kind of a bash coming from a Moderator.

Do you by chance drive in very dirty and or dusty conditions ? Any major construction within your daily commute ?
If so the sensors could just be dirty.

He'* kidding!

ABS saved my butt a couple days ago, was doing 60 down a country road with heavy bushes on the side and didn't noticed there'* a stop sign up ahead until I saw a truck waiting to make a left turn on the other road, which left me with about 25 feet to stop. I was smelling rubber there! haha! At least I know that I put my brakes on right.
