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
