Service ABS System, Traction Control System and Service Stability System

Why would your car tell you to service stability system, traction control system and ABS all at the same time? One thing all of these systems has in common are ABS sensors. These sensors count the teeth on reluctor rings attached to the hubs. All three safety systems use ABS sensors to determine the wheel speed.  This tells the ABS system when the wheels are about to lock up, and they tell both the traction control and stability systems when the tires are losing grip. Your car probably has a bad sensor, bad wiring or a damaged reluctor ring.
