You would have to fix the problem before the lights go out. Have the vehicle scanned for any trouble codes and for ABS codes. This will tell you where the problem is to fix. Write down all the codes. An auto parts store can check for codes.

It's most likely a wheel speed sensor for the anti-lock brake system (ABS). The ABS and traction control systems work together. When the computer sees a problem with one system, both are disabled and both lights come on. As Rowefast said, you'll have to get the ABS computer scanned for trouble codes to know where the trouble is. Most auto parts stores will do it for free. HTH. -Jim
