Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I accelerated to pass a car, the VSC off, TRAC off, and Check Engine light all came on the same time.  I know I need new shock absorbers, but why would the Check Engine light come on?

Since you car threw a code, those lights will come on. You will need to scan for the codes to make sure what the exact problem is. The shock absorbers have nothing to do with the lights coming on.
