Default Traction Control & ABS lights

it only happens every so often.......about 3-4 times since i've had the car for like....3 months now{?} but randomly i'll look at the dask and all of a sudden the "Traction Control off" and "ABS" lights are both on.....everything seems to work fine when they do come on, and if i turn the car off and then start it again, the lights are gone. Any suggestions to what my be causing this? I know my rotors need to be replaced cause a lot of shuddering goes on when braking hot, so may that be the cause, or is there something else?

thanks

Intermittent faults like that are usually crud in the hub/bearing assemblies, screwing with the WSS. Jack the car up, remove all 4 wheels, and pressure wash the back side of all 4 hubs.

Check the connections for all 4 WSS for corrosion, and hook 'em back up.
