I'm getting the same kind of messages on mine, can anyone shed some light?

What happened...
I'm a new owner of an SSEI, only had her for a couple months now. I think I broke it, being an imbecile and trying to fix my heated seats (driver side doesn't work) by checking out the fuses for them. I opened the wrong fuse box, the one under the hood, and messed around for while before realizing the heated seat fuses were under the back seat.

Then the car wouldn't start. I had replaced a fuse in under the hood with a different one (same number, looked different tho), so I switched it back to the original. Car started, but the engine shook violently. Figured it was the oxygen sensors being off from something I did, so I unhooked the power to the fuse box for a few minutes to reset it.

That worked, car ran fine for half an hour or so. Then I started getting the "Trac Off" and "Anti-lock Brake" lights, and now two days later the Check Stability System message. The only performance issues I've noticed so far is my brakes slip once or twice (as if on ice -it is winter- but I don't think I was on ice), and only a split second. Nothing scary enough to cause me to panic right now, but I'm not sure what'* going on.

I can only figure it happened from me messing up my fuses, or maybe removing the front fuse box power.

Anyone have any ideas?

Welcome to the club. We've had some members who have been having problems with the fuse blocks in the 2000+ cars - both front and rear boxes. Does the box seem quite warm to the touch? Pull the fuses out again (any that you've touched) and try pushing the metal connections inside the block a bit closer together with a pick or similar tool and see if that helps. If you can't get to that right away, at least check for the heat, as we are wondering if perhaps that has been a cause of some vehicle fires. I'm not trying to alarm you, just forewarn.
