you should have the vehicle scanned for codes. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor not getting the right signal to the computer. Front wheel speed sensors and broken wiring to the front sensors are common as these cars age. Getting a scan for codes and then looking at the data stream will give you a direction to figure out what's happening. Both traction control (stability) and ABS use the wheel speeds to determine if a wheel is starting to skid or the system will apply brake to help cornering.

there may be other reasons that would also turn on these lights. that's why you need to find out what the codes are. Have you cleared the codes and they came back or the lights have come on and you haven't done anything yet?

If you find out what the codes are let me know.
