I got stuck in the mud, and ever since I got out, my advance traction turns off and my 4X4 High light flashes on and off

Also, my ABS light came on and stayed on. A friend told me to disconnect the battery and reconnect it. This didn't help "reset" anything. When I first start up the truck, the Advanced Traction control is on, but as soon as I go forward, there is a grinding noise in the front end, the truck is sluggish to move forward, the Advance Traction Off light comes on, then it goes forward. But, after a while, the 4X4 High light starts flashing on and off.
