Hello and welcome to
The abs and traction warnings can be the result of low voltage. I first recommend we have the battery properly tested as well as the charging system. There also may have been an electrical spike from the lightening so we also need to check for a draw with an amp meter. We also would need to have the vehicle scanned for the stored fault codes. A Jag factory tool will be needed to do this as a more advanced tool is needed to communicate with the ABS module. I also recommend we make sure all electrical functions are working like all interior, exterior and dimmer controlled lighting. Let me know.
