Abs and traction lights

When I crank my 1998 vette the abs and traction lights come on and the a/c will not work until the lights go out,,they come on and off periodically as I drive and each time they come on the a/c goes off

Sounds like a wiring issue

Maybe want to check your grounds. My recommendation would be to check the wiring to the A/C clutch and the front passenger wheel bearing (speed sensor). My therory is the two circuts are shorting together. The ABS light can be tripped with a problem with the wires leading into the bearing. Have you checked the codes. Just search this site under the C5 Section for DTC codes.
We recommend a good service manual 1998 Chevrolet Chevy Corvette Service Shop Manual (3 Volume Set)
