Question '08 WRX Intermittent TC/ABS disable

Twice in the past month I've had the dash light indicating that traction control/hill holder/ABS have shut themselves off. I cycle the ignition, and it's all fine. '08 WRX, 4000 miles

Ideas?

By the way, the stock all season tires suck in snow. I had more control with my '00 Miata. My mom's '00 Outback is better. My '86 944 Turbo was WAY better and so was my '87 924S! I don't like sliding sideways on a dusting of snow. Who spec'd these tires?!


Thanks!

Thread at http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1644634 might help you pin down problem. Did you spin one or more wheels on snow?

d00000000d, he doesn't have Bridgestone RE92 tires. His car has Dunlop tires.

I bet his all-season Dunlops are far better on snow than those high-performance tires which come standard on 2009 WRX.

I had that problem on mine and took it to the dealer. They replaced BCU (body control unit), have not had the problem since then.

My dealer is kinda dead right now (the owner killed himself and they are restructuring) but I'll get it checked out when I can get to the next closest dealer.
