    I just merged these two threads into one.

    Sorry I do not have the answer to the question

    but I don't think there is any need to start two separate threads on this on the same day.

    Could be myriad of things. I'd suggest getting the fault codes scanned to narrow down the problem. I take it you've already had a look under the bonnet for anything obvious like unplugged sensor/electrical connector etc ??

    Rear ABS harness is prone to failing, especially if the car is lowered.

    Check for loose spark plug leads

    VEs are very prone to all sorts of strange error messages if your battery is unhealthy. Also, if it has aftermarket headers also quite common for misfire problems due to burnt out leads touching extractors. Also common for (from memory) one of the rear, hard to get to spark plug leads to come loose.
