Have the codes pulled. It will tell you what system is having an issue. It could be as simple as a flat or low tire setting off the YAW switch on turns, but you need the code to tell.

Thanks, The only code is shows says replace timing belt, why would that affect the stability and traction code? I've been told it has a timing chain not a belt and the car doesn't show any symptoms of the timing being off.

That code would be from the Powertrain control module. If you list it i can give you information about it. i don't think it has to do with this issue, but if you had a severe enough vibration, it is possible it could effect other systems..but that is not commonl.

You need to pull the codes from the ABS/traction control module to see why it's light is on. It will have separate codes for it's systems that may not show up in the PCM.
