I had this happen a couple of times only in torrential rain so bad the ASC and ABS couldn't keep up. I'm talking driving through at least 6" of water over the road at most times.
They actually shut off entirely, the ! in the triangle came on on the dash and the ABS light came on as well.
Got home and parked and next day it was fine each time.

I had this happen once when driving on a heavily rutted road. Pulled the battery, had a beer, put it back in, fixed.

the "trifeca" diagnostic steps depend on the car year
