Default suspension indication flashes

when i drive down the road i get an indicator on the tach that comes goes goes. happens pretty regulary. it has something to do with the stability control system. i checked for codes but there nothing there. seems like whenever i hit bumps it pops up. anybody had this issue before ? the indicator is a a yellow circle with a triangle in it and an exclamation point next to it. also theres a red circle with quotes and an exclamation point in the middle and its red. the brake light and a yellow circle a triangle lit up also. anybody got any ideas ?

i got an idea......how about it needs brake pads ? i just looked in the book and one of the indicators says low brake fluid. low brake fluid is usually an indicator of worn pads.

You can always visually inspect the brake pads first to see how meat is left on them before buying a set.

The yellow triangle sounds like the Tire Pressure light but different on mine ...
Unsure the year you have
check the owners manual to be sure
