Multiple shorts indicated on sid. Original message "electronic stability control failure". This is a common complaint amongst SAAB owners for this make and model. Occasionally, an associated an abs failure indication will appear while traveling. Have not noticed a loss in abs function yet, but it was dry when these shorts occurred. The failure is assumed to be associated with the cruise control function and its use has been lost.
