    Intermittantly I get dash warning lights displayed all at the same time.
    The lights are :- ABS, Airbag and Drive train. Also sometimes included is the low trac light. Sometimes the ABS brake engages for a moment as they come on.
    Previously only the ABS light was coming on.
    I don't believe all these devices are faulty. I'm thinking a loose connector somewhere.
    Has anyone else experienced this problem.

    Might I suggest you try removing and then cleaning the terminals on the connecting plug that goes to the module.

    Perhaps they are dirty causing some 'intermittant' problems. Had a similar issue with mine only the traction lights came on and cruise control was disabled. Pain in the arse if your on the highway for 3 hours!!!

    yes another faulty abs module .to diagonise when your warning lights come on keep running and unplug abs module .your lights will come off .
    holdens tech 2 diagonis equipment wont recognise fault when faulty abs module is in . i actually had to tell our holden dealer what to do.partwill cost you about 650 to 700 dollars takes 15mins to replace .
    thanks to this forum it saved me lots of dollars . thanks from another member .our holden dealer couldnt find fault. went back 3rd time with this info .they were full of apologys.

    I have been told by a mechanic that it may be a poor earth connection somewhere as the fault is intermittant. There are about 8 earth connections apparently. Usually electronic equipment fails completely.

    abs module probs just unplug it and if only the abs light, traction on, and low traction, lights stay on then thats ur prob, can also check earth conection at back of alternator, and battery terminals. in my car the wire came loose from back of alternator and caused abs module to fail.
