Hello, 

Any one have any input on these codes, not much on Prodemand didn't fine any TSB or flow charts also i try clearing the codes and they will not clear the ABS light and traction control light remain on i did notice lots of chatter on the internet about module going out but its all hearsay need more facts and date flow charts pinpoint test.

Bear in mind if you replace it the module will need coding of the steering angle sensor and lateral acceleration sensor. i cannot guarantee it will cure the other codes but I
