I have been having this issue where the Service RSC light comes on in red and a horrible digging; with this the ABS, traction control, and wrench lights are all on. After about 30 seconds it stops then out of the blue with a minute it starts up again. I am disabled and money is super tight I need any and all help you guys can provide. Thanks.

I suggest doing a scan. Download free Forscan:: Download FORScan
Then get a compatible obd-2 adapter (between say 20-60$) and report any codes here.
There are many to choose from, I don't suggest something very cheap.
Some autoparts stores will scan (advance auto), but they may not find abs/rsc codes.
Without codes, you might as well play the lottery!

Could be something simple like a tone ring or ABS sensor.
