Hey, I have a 94 rx with a full 96 jdm wrx driveline/ loom installed. The abs from the rx has been spliced into the wrx loom. I also have 4/2 pot callipers installed.
The last two mornings as soon as I started rolling the abs light has flashed on and off with an audible solenoid click. At the same time it seems to be cutting power to the engine, so the car will drive but kangaroo hops down the road. Turning the ignition off and on again makes it go away and it will drive fine for the rest of the day.
I have researched how to check abs codes so will look at that, but has anyone experienced anything like this before?
It seems strange that the abs system is connected to the ecu somehow.

Well abs would be putting the brakes on which are directly tied to the engine really so cutting power makes some sense. 

Defs start with checking the codes. In the mean time you could just unplug the module while you work it out.
