Hi all,

Late last year, when it got around 40 degrees out, I had antilock brakes, active handling and traction control service lights all come on at the same time. It never did it when it was warmer out so I figured the cold had something to do with it. But after that, the lights come on every time I drive, but only after the car hits a slight bump, like when I pull out of the garage or go over the curb. It seems like the cold temps cause a sensor to get loose, and then every time I hit a slight bump--just enough to jar the car a bit--the messages come on the DIC. Has this happened to anyone else? My vette is a 2008 base.

I'm with you in thinking you have a sensor connection that is loose. These cars are very susceptible to electrical supplies. Just as a start, I would check the condition of the battery. Make sure that it checks out to all the specs required for the car.

Hopefully, one of our resident experts, will check in here soon with some specific suggestions for you.
