Question Lights flashing and radio cut out?

I got ABS, Hand brake and Traction control light all flashing at the same time on the dash and the radio volume cuts out. Each incident only last less than a second. Everything then back to normal.

This happens 5 ~ 6 times within a 5 min period. I faintly recall that a month back this happened as well.

Anyone have any similar happening to them or any guesses where I should start looking?


07 with Navi.

TIA,

Original battery?

I'd start there. Check the connections for tightness/corrosion. Bit if it's the original battery that's probably the culprit--have it checked.

Got a new OE battery before warranty expired last year. Had the symptoms before the dealer gave me a free one.

I don't think it's the typical battery issue where random lights come on since all lights are brake related. Had that issue before and

I just got new pads 3 months ago. Rotor looks fine and radio cut out? That's what really throws me off..

Yes, one of the radiator wire came lose acting as low/weak battery. Once reconnect it properly. No symptoms for the last 11 months.

HTHs,
