Any idea why these lights would come on out of the blue. Wrx only has 20k miles and they come in after driving a short while.

Possibly an ABS system fault. Since the new cars use the ABS system for traction control and the hill holder, a fault that disables the ABS system will also disable those.

There may be codes stored in the ECU. Try scanning it with an OBD2 reader. Scanning the ABS system itself is likely to require a trip to the dealer.

Those could also be coming on due to low battery voltage.

^^^ good post. If the battery is original, it is getting older.

 

maybe a tone ring sensor wire took a hit at one of the wheels?

Basically, the recipe to reproduce is to brake while downshifting

So, my buddy referenced the codes and there is an open recall #06-44-12r... That being said, Go Subaru "can't seem to locate that recall". Now, I know I'm more skeptical than others, but if I have to pay those Jack offs $140 to pull codes, then another $waytoomuch, I'm liable to just drive it throw their showroom window.
