Default Errors :(

i started my car tonight, At the initial start up the "Brake Failure System Service" message came up, With Solid lights of traction control, Brake, and ABS light came on, NO hesitation they came at start up.... I waited like 3 minutes, till it warmed up, then I shut the car off, And restarted it. The messages and lights were all off, brakes feel normal.....

Am i facing a bad ABS module? Or could this of happened because of the wet weather we had this week? or could this be a fluke...?

Why would you want a New one that will go bad again. Like $400.00 (New)

Rebuilt like $100.00 with a 5 year warranty?

I invested in the warranty, it'll be no cost to me anymore.... had to dish out $3250 ><, that hurts, But I just dont want to deal with some of these other repairs I read on these cars....headers, Tranmissions(which I think Mine is sorta clunking), all those crazy sesnsors that tend to go...lot of electrical equiptment...as well as mechanics for this car..

I think these cars tend to have the most problems around my mileage-63765.......2 years for 24 thousands miles.....

Is it still under warranty?

If not buy the rebuilt one for $100.00 that comes with a 5 year warranty.

Its not under warranty, just going to buy the extended warranty....

The extended warranty will be cover this repair and alot of other things ..

I just have a feeling that Im gonna need like a lot of money to repair this car, it seems i cant go without a month having a problem, so I might as well get the warrranty.

As for rebuilding it, i think im gonna get the new abs module in(it'll be done under the extended warranty which i ended up purchasing today), ask for the old one back, send it out for rebuilding and re sell it on ebay .

Oh ok

But I doubt they will give you the old one. I will bet there will be a core on it.
