    This has happened to me now 3 times. Conditions have always been similar, a few hours after the rain had stopped and on the exact same corner all 3 times. It happens on a sharp highway exit/entrance where you transfer from one highway to another making a long 270 degree turn around and under the previous highway. I enter the exit/corner around 35-40 (yes slightly too fast) and at the exact second I touch the brake pedal both front wheels lock up and the traction control lights flash and beep. This time I slid about 5 feet before the wheels would re-engage. The dealer cannot find anything wrong.

    Any ideas?

    Your VSC is engaging , have you lifted or put on larger tires ?

    FYI , ABS does not have a beeper
