'06 Liberty ABS/Trac issue

Now that we finally have some snow in Denver, I am experiencing a problem. When I start the car, everything checks out fine, and the abs auto-tests at 17 mph. However, if I am stopping and hit a patch of ice, the ABS, EPS and EBS lights all come on and stay on. Restarting the car clears the issue until the next time the system kicks on when traction or stopping assistance is required. 102000 miles on the vehicle. I think there are two sensors in the front and one at the rear diff. Any thoughts on how I might track down what the problem is?

First order is to pull the codes with capable scan tool

From what I am reading, this isn't going to happen at the neighborhood auto parts store. I'll see if I can duplicate the issue and then head to the dealer...grrr.

You do realize that repair shops beyond the dealers have way more advanced tools than autozone right? There are hundreds of facilities in Denver that can look at it, and many more up and down the front range. You can go to the dealer, but that doesn't mean the best tech is going to look at it. There's also a good chance the codes are stored in memory, so even though the light isn't on, it'll still be in there.
