Last night when I was coming home, the slip and vdc off lights were on the whole way, and I couldn't turn the vdc off off with the button. I stopped to get some beer and then only the vdc off light was on on the way home, which wouldn't go off. then finally I tried again in like 10 minutes and it went off. WTF????

Sounds like spending $100 on a code reader might not be a bad idea. :)
True, but i shouldn't need it. Maybe I will ride over to Autozone later.

Edit: I just crawled under my X and my passenger side bottom shock bolt was gone and the shock was just hanging there. Could be part of the issue. I just re-torqued that bolt two weeks ago because it was loose.

Hope the dealer carries that.
wow... that's scary.
So I guess all the problems that we all have been having with the lights have been related to the ABS unit?
The club just keeps on growing and growing :geek:
hopefully that is what would fix the random light problem
great man.. let us know
I had my lights come off just like you mentioned but only for a few minutes when i was in WV last weekend. it was really cold i would say about -8F. after warming up and then turning the engine off and then on again the lights went away. I didn't see them again for the rest of the weekend event thought the next day was colder
