Got home and went to the dealership and service adviser said my power steering fluid was low. The fluids got topped off and I have not had any problems since then.
That is interesting you mention the fluids (you may be on to something)! my symptoms appear during acceleration or turning (I'm not reading that everyone has had these errors under the same circumstance however) - which if the fluids were low could be in fact why they are coming on - is there no sensors for those fluids also? I know the oil one is there but brake and steering level sensors are they present?
