Dirty or faulty ABS wheel speed sensor. You have to have the codes read to find out which one.

The antilock brake system and the traction control system work together. When the computer detects a problem with the ABS the traction control system is disabled as well. Do as Tom said and look for a dirty or bad ABS sensor. HTH. -Jim

Its probably a broken wire on one of your front wheels. Thats my cars problem.

My front right wheel pulls to the right and when I go to higher speeds it rattles and makes all these banging noises and my ABS light and traction light come on when I turn the steering wheel or move it and it pulls to the right really bad.
