ABS, VDC Off, and SLIP lights

Hi all - just checking to see if this is a common light combo and any likely culprits.
Thanks.

And would you say, Dealership or a Midas-type place?

If you mean the SRS light then it would be a weird combination, you might have something going out in the steering column or spiral cable. If you mean ABS or brake, then it might be as simple as low brake fluid. If you mean a steering light then it may be a steering angle sensor going out. Post a pic and get the codes for the brake and chassis systems read.

Most decent repair shops will have something like a SnapOn Solus that can read all the onboard systems. Dealer probably isn't necessary.

I see the title change, check your brake fluid. If it's below halfway to the "MIN" line it will often trip the lights on a bump or hard turn. If it's low because of worn pads, replace them.

Thanks - I'll check the fluid level and pads, at a brake shop :)
