Question Multiple Warning Lights Come and Go During Braking

Hello everyone,

I would really appreciate any advise or places to point me to try to fix the following issue that I've just experienced for the first time today.

The following happened two separate times on a 5 minute drive today.

I was coming to a stop and the following lights came on while in the middle of braking: Brakes, ABS, TCS, TCS Off (there may have been one more that I don't remember)

As soon as the lights came there was a warning tone from the center stack but no error message came up.

The lights all went out again within 5 seconds of coming on.

I think I may have felt a slight pulse in the brake pedal for a fraction of a second.

Any ideas? Has anybody encountered this before?

That's your ABS module starting to go bad.

Common problem. As it gets worse, you'll lose the speedometer too...

Thanks Siren.

So I've located a couple great sites for removing the module:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/957152/Saa...Module-MY-2000

http://www.scribd.com/doc/99598/Saab-95-ABS-Module

And they both say that BBA-reman is the place to get it rebuilt. Are they still the place to get the ABS module rebuilt? Is it still around $155 including shipping?
