    Default help lights on dash whats up?

    guys i had just been to the dealer about a problem with my boot not sittin right and get it sorted. on the way home i said to my friend how i liked thins car and it was runnin well so would keep it for 3 yrs or more then no more than 1 min later the abs and traction control lit up! i thought just a small problem so i stopped and switvhed of car and waited a min then restarted car. lights still on and the speedo needle bouncin off the 0 even tho i was stopped. i tested the car and the abs and traction both arnt workin. any ideas whats going on? also the quickest it will be seen is next wed. its only an 06 sri 1.9cdti so it should be under warranty only thing is i have the 314mm brakes on it and i hope they dont try and say anything about them to get out of warrenty. also on sat and this morning i heard like a stone hittin the underside of the drivers side wheel and i think i felt it tho the peddle. the brakes have been on over a month so i really dont think it has anything to do with them. i know i didnt disconnect any wires as thhe car desnt have the brake pad sensor wires so there were none to hit. so any ideas and what you think about the 314 disks will they tryand blame them on that even tho they are from a gsi vectra(well actually a new saab aero but im not tellin them that!) any help would be great thanks

    plead ignorance, they must have been on it for months, and they are gen vx parts. Maybe the supplying dealer fitted them at the customers request.....

    Maybe not but still not the sort of thing to tell the service manager when you walk in...

    Such is warranty small print that they wriggle whenever they can.

    It could be a dodgy wheel sensor or steering angle sensor. Both are needed for the esp+ that you have.
