Service Traction + ABS + Manual Brake Light

Hello my friends,

I need help and again I am driving in middle of nowhere (in )with my Chevrolet Cobalt 2008 with 92K on it:

This morning, the Service Traction message was visible together with ABS and the icon visible when manual brake is engaged - manual brake was not engaged.

No visible performance effect visible"acceleration or braking

Turned off the engine and restarted. The message did not go away.

Drove like 15 miles. Turned the engine off. Restarted, and the message was gone.

What should I do?

i have the same problem these lights. they come on after i have driven it for a few miles. then maybe not at all. i did use the e-brake the other day in the drive because i vacuumed under the lever. i'm sure i put it back down as i don't have the light telling my the brake is on. so is it not down enough or maybe something else? i tried the hand brake and it show when it is up and the t/c light comes on also. i have not drivien the car much all summer so i wonder if the abs is sticking and causing that problem after the car has put a few miles on it. any ideas? help us out thanks

Bad wheel bearing. When the reluctor ring gets misaligned with the wheel speed sensor because of bearing wear this type of code will pop up.

Might be air in the line. Might just need a bleed.
