Ive seen this with the saabs 9-3 & 9-5 lowered many times furst the stability system is very finiky it doesnt like lowered vehicle so what tends to happen is even though your wheel bearings were not bad for say the extra weight now baring on them has pushed them to thriw the code for one side or two the only fix is to replace the wheeal bearing or bearings, Also it stretches the wires to abs sensor built into bearing if the sensor wire didnt fot in the mount for it properly on the new strut it will also move or get banged up or stetch thete comes your light and last many guys drop the car with lowering sorings with weak oem struts that didnt feel bad before u lowered car now car is baring all the weight the oems are gone making it impossible for the stabilty system to get a acurate reading. So first check your connections on both sides for abs wires check also fir tears or stretching if nothing look for what I listed above and slso if u have a good scan reader/programmer run it obd2 and look for what abs sensor or sensors are out and replace whole wheel bearing but 99 percent of time its your lowered car on week struts change struts and pray to the abs gods That you didnt stretch or ruin a sensor bevause the saab wheel bearings arent cheap and sucks to just have to re place them if there not vad bearings all for a lil magnet inside.
The costs and work for driving one of the sexiest cars known to man when lowered and tinted.
