Sounds like a bad hub bearing assembly. On these cars the ABS sensors are incorporated with the hub bearing assemblies. When the computer disables the ABS system because of a problem the traction control system is also disabled so the trac off light comes on as well. HTH. -Jim

Check your brake fluid level in the master cylinder.

If wheel bearing is bad, sounds like airplane taking off. Probably another part of ABS
