    So a few hundred miles after I had the front suspension arms replaced, the car started flashing the brake and ABS lights and STOP pretty much whenever it is driven. Resetting all the codes gives me ~50 miles then it happens again. The codes which come up are (abbreviated a bit): Engine 18014 -...
