Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

So I drove the car today. Car started with the Anti lock light on. At the usual place, the first small hill, the cough took place, except I was paying attention this time and looking at my pillar mounted boost gauge. I was going maybe 15-20 MPH and was showing very little vacuum then cough..., cough, cough. The needle would jump to 15 inches of vacuum.

I got to my destination (mom's for mothers day) and after it had cooled down I went out and reseated several of the connectors to things like BOV, APC solenoid etc... thinking that the needle was jumping to vacuum because boost was being dumped because of a bad connection somewhere..

When I went to go get dinner, instead of cough cough cough, the traction control light came on. Now the car runs "fine", except I'm not getting any low end low speed boost like I was, which I would expect if the traction control light was on.

On top of all of that when I came home, the anti lock light was out when I started the car, but came on after moving 20 feet.

I'm not getting the boost I'm used to, but I expect that with these lights on. Other than that the car ran great and was still boosting.

So where can I find info on traction control and antilock systems and what would trigger the lights?
