This just happened to me. My mechanic said that it is due to unreliable wheel speed information. It can be caused by having different diameter tires on the van, but more likely due to a bad wheel bearing or a wheel bearing starting to go bad. He was able to get a fault code to identify which wheel sensor was the problem. Since the wheel speed information is bad, the ABS and traction control are disabled, hence the warning lights.

This just happened to me. I reset the computer by taking the neg. battery cable off the battery for about 3 or 4 minutes and put it back on the battery. That fixed the problem for me.

thx1138 might be correct, since my warning lights were accompanied by occasional wheel shimmy.
