Default C5 traction and ABS

I am the new owner of a 97 vette. I have recently had problems with my traction and ABS lights coming on. I am looking to see if anyone would know why both come on at the same time. I have cleared them both at one point but they came back on a few days later. Thanks

Do they come one as soon as you start your car or after you have been driving it? I really dont have much info for you but on my 02 if I dont give the computer enough time to turn on before I start my car they come on at once. I usually wait until the speedo has reached o mph before starting.

Dennis hate to brake it to ya the TC for MN-12s only modulates the rear ABS system.As for having both TC and LSD, watching the video on the Eaton G35 shows that during wheels spin a traditional LSD tries to spin both wheels but will eventually fail to produce enough power to the wheel with traction. At which time it seems the TC could possibly apply enough drag to help shift power back. _________________Young drivers
