Default service security system & everything else

I am sorry is this has been asked it is my first time here. i bought my 2001 Bonneville SSEi in February. This week I started having a couple of weird problems. First my Traction control woould just go off, then yesterday my Service Security light came on temporarily shutting off the radio. The ABS light was on as well it resets when i restart the car. I am going on a trip Friday and I am wondering if I have to take it to a dealer or if there are things I can check first.

Check the battery connections and the ground by the battery.

Check the hi-current positive cable going to the distro box under the hood

when the authors above me say to "check" the connections, they mean to pull the actual connector off, visually inspect the terminals for corrosion, and remove it if necessary, or replace if its bad enough.
