Make: 2008 Impreza WRX
Mileage: 40,000ish miles
Time Out Of Use: none yet
Problem And Likely Cause: ABS & VDC Malfunction Indicator Lights on on dash; ABS & VDC not functioning
Modifications: None that should've caused these issues. All have been installed for a while now. AEM CAI, COBB AccessPort w/OTS Stage 1 tune, GrimmSpeed Master Cylinder Brace.
Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): Not yet, but have appointment next week
Reason Given For Denial: May not be covered by Subaru Extended Warranty (Premium/Gold/Classic/?)
Your Story: This issue started yesterday just after setting off on a longish trip out of the mountains I live in. It has never occurred before, but happens every time I drive now.
Upon starting the car, all is normal. No MILs. After setting off & getting up to over 20 or so MPH, then stopping, the ABS & VDC MILs illuminate. They stay on until I turn the car off. At which time the cycle repeats.
I haven't hit anything on the road. There is no obvious damage or disconnected wires/plugs. Car worked as it should up to the night before last. Then, suddenly this problem.
Brought to dealer while out of mountains. Assistant Service Manager said I could bring it in for diagnosis (at a cost of $140.00+) & hopefully they will find the issue. Doesn't know if my Subaru Extended Warranty covers this. I have the premium one, but don't remember what it's called at this time.
BTW, pads are pretty worn & I just started hearing wear indicators very recently. Could this be a cause?
To top it off, warranty ends very soon.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

When you say 'no wires are disconnected' you wouldn't have recently connected any, would you have? Can't remember where on here I read this but someone thought wires became disconnected, connected them, had all kinds of dash lights start doing goofy things. Some kind of test mode?
