Need help understanding

I have a 2000 9-3, I have recently had a lot of work done on it and recently three lights have shown up off and on that also cuts out the speedometer. The lights are the Warning light with the triangle, the ABS and the brake lights. The car's performance is not interrupted, it still runs as if nothing is wrong, I hope not, I just paid a lot of money to have it repaired, but I would hope that maybe someone also may have had this same issue and could shed some light on this subject before I have some mechanic tell me I need to spend a lot more money on it again. Any help is greatly appreciated.

ABS issue? I had a bad speed sensor that would occasionally act up and flash the "christmas tree" of lights. Shut the car off, start it back up, lights would go out.

What kind of work, perhaps a sensor wasn't plugged in all the way?

I would check the ABS sensors at each wheel, especially the back ones which are also used for sensing speed.

Next is the ABS controller under the hood. Its ~$100 remaned on-line.

If you have someone who has access to a Tech-II with the Saab sw, it maybe able to pinpoint the problem.

Cutting out speedometer means you need the ABS control module. A company called BBA reman will do it for $60 located in MA. If you had those lights and the speedo still worked, it would be a wheel speed sensor. The speed is generated by an average of the 4 wheel speed sensors, and can still work when one fails. 95% sure it would be the control module, you can remove it and still drive the car.
