Sounds like you have two seperate issues going on. First, pull the trouble code from the PCM (computer). This will tell you about the "check engine" light. The brake and traction control" light coming on together is probably a bad ABS sensor. My nephew had a 2000 Grand Prix that did the exact same thing. On his the hub assembly had to be replaced because the ABS sensor was intrigrated within the hub. There will be a trouble code for that as well but it's stored in a different computer called the EBCM (electronic brake control module). To get that code you need a different or more sophisticated scan tool than the one used to get codes out of tje "check engine" light computer. HTH. -Jim

yes sir I do have the same...They have been on for 3 years. My problem is the wheel bearing drivers side.. I refuse to change it. Also, every couple of years I need to replace the gas cap, even though it looks fine, thats what causes the service vehicle soon lite to come on.

Your ABS sensor wires could be cut found out the hard way still trying to figure out a way to keep it from coming apart.
