Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Anytime the check engine or VSC lights come on, there should be codes stored in the Pending or History section of the scan tool (if it is compatible enough to display these codes). What this sounds to me like is a cracked tone ring (the thing that the ABS wheel speed sensor 'reads') at the right rear. These particular vehicles are known for the tone ring to crack. This would result in an intermittent problem (depending on temperature/humidity, other factors). It might work fine one day and be faulty the next. and fine again the day after. If this car was in my shop I would be visually inspecting the passenger rear ABS tone ring; replace if any abnormality is seen,
