Is there anything else happening with the car?

Chances are you are going to need a scanner hooked up and see what codes are set.

Did you have any work done recently on your wheels/wheel bearings/brakes?  I'll get that after tire slippage(burn out :lol: ) or dyno

Hows you're battery? On both my Kappa (when I had it) and my Camaro I'll get ESC/stability control issues if I start it with a low battery.

This is what I had too, I also had it when the ECM was being overworked because of a cam issue (not on the Kappa but another Pontiac).

Check the ABS/rotation sensors & wiring at each wheel (also, while you're there, check the hub bolts are all tight - 3 bolts/wheel hub).  A faulty sensor or busted wiring can play havoc.
