My car is a 2007 Buick Lucerne, CSE, with about 130,000

Customer Question

My car is a 2007 Buick Lucerne, CSE, with about 130,000 miles. I have a recurring problem with first the traction light (and also ABS light) which kept coming on, and I would lose traction. At that point, the Buick dealer replaced a sensor in right front tire.
About 3 months later the ABS light, the Service Brake Assist message, and other lights stayed on the whole drive home, about 40 minutes, while the door locks kept going up and down and the a/c quit working properly. The dealer took a week to tell me they couldn't figure it out, and when I said I would pick up the car, the next day they said they should change out the electronics module, for $874, which they did.
A week later the whole scenario happened again. I took the car in on Wednesday; it is the following Tuesday; they still can't figure out what is wrong. I am seeking a refund of $874.
Any ideas on what is wrong? They say they can't locate the sensor that is doing this.
Thank you.

Do you know which codes are stored now?

I assume you do not have a scan tool or know someone that does which can monitor wheel speeds while driving?

Are all 4 tires the same brand, size, age, right pressure, and tread depth?

No,I don't know codes. All my tires are the same size, etc. What do they have to do with it? This is a situation where the ABS light, the traction light, all start flashing, and the door locks go up and down while driving. And about three months ago I had a similar issue with the traction not working properly, and they replaced a sensor in right front tire. The dealer does not seem able to find the sensor they believe is the problem.

FYI, they decided it was an electrical short so the wiring was contacting the strut tower which kept grounding out and damaged the mechanism. I am canceling this alleged service.
