Unhappy ABS + TC Warning Lights Are ONN !

Hello everyone,,
I have a Buick Randezvous 2002..my ABS + TC warning lights come on when I drive for a while and then turn left or right (mostly left)..they used to come on one month ago and i did a little research and one of the solutions was to add breaking fluid, I did that and the lights did not show up,, today when I was driving downtown b4 parking the lights came on AGAIN !..
I went back home and added some breaking fluid (although its level was almost full !),, but this time i didn't get much luck as the lights came back on when I drove for a while !!
the lights that come on are the TC + ABS + TC with a maintenance wrench on it.. well the last one stays for a while and then disappears, but the others stay on as far as the car is operating !.... I wanna take appointment with Midas and have them run a diagnosis check to see what exactly is wrong and what needs to be prepared...I don't wanna go to the dealer because they are a RIP OFF !!.... do you guys recommend anything or do you have any ideas about what cost am I looking at ?

Thanks

$86 for the front and $94 for the rear plus shipping from Rockauto. would want to make sure you know which wheel hub(*) are doing it so that you buy the right one and as many as needed

hmmm parts plus shipping may equal what their part will cost ya. first off have it checked as to which one it is, then go from there on how much places will charge to replace it.
