Regarding 2000 Oldsmobile Alero - intermittent failure/ malfunction of anti-lock brakes and traction control while braking to a stop. Upon starting the vehicle, the anti-lock brake system would appear to work fine. The traction control system, indicated by the "low trac" light may or may not be lit, indicating a problem. Shortly after driving the vehicle and while braking to a stop, the traction control system seems to sense a slippery road and activates the anti-lock brakes, causing the brakes to disengage and then slowly re-engage, as if stopping on slippery pavement. However, this has been happening on dry, normal pavement at normal speed and stops. Having the brakes disengage while braking to a stop increases the needed stopping distance and requires the driver to either turn to avoid a collision or use the emergency break to stop. Note that the the red brake failure light is not on during this condition. After stopping, the amber "anti-lock", "trac off", and "service vehicle soon" lights are lit and the vehicle appears to deactivate the anti-lock and traction control system for the rest of the trip. The brakes then work fine, with these systems deactivated.
