I have a problem with my 2008 Acura TL Type S, two months back my car's ABS/Brake and VSA light came on, so we brought it to the dealership because it was still under warranty and they couldn't figure it out but did have to fix the traction control and they also replaced the bakes because they started to grind. The other day I was going slow down a steep hill and got down to the end and they bakes made a noise and a little while later the same lights came on again, it's been cold and dry out but there is still a bunch of sand on the roads here from when it was really icy out and when I press on the brake they felt like there is air pressure in them or something weird, so what could this be? I am so stressed out and I can't afford not to drive it or bring it into the shop until next month.

The brakes make a ticking noise and slips. Then the TCS and ABS lights come on only when you hit 70mph.

I have replaced all of the brake pads, the coliper on the front passenger and the master cylinder.

What else could be causing this problem?

It sounds like you have a bad ABS or speed sensor. Have the computer scanned to identify where the problem is coming from.

When a fault has been detected in the ABS system, the indicator light would come on. You need appropriate scan tool to retrieve the trouble code.

Ensure you have sufficient fluid in master cylinder as low fluids can cause the light to turn on as well.
