 Abs brake and trac light in a 2003 pontiac grand prix stayed on. we took the vehicle to a pontiac dealer and he stated that it would cost $925.00 to replace the computer system. it also stated that he would call gm headquarters and see if we could get some help from them. apparently he received word from headquarters that if we had a 50,000 mile check-up at his dealership and pay $425.00 then he gm wouldn't charge us to correct the abs and trac light problem. of course we opted for this because it saved us money. but i wonder if this was a scam and gm wouldn't have charged us anything to fix the abs and trac light system. *nm
