The ABS computer has detected a problem with the anti-lock brake (ABS) system. The anti-lock brake system and the traction control system work together. When a problem is detected both systems are disabled and both lights come on to alert you there's a problem. It's most likely a wheel speed sensor for the ABS. These sensors are part of the wheel bearing hub assembly and are prone to failure. HTH. -Jim
