Yes. The ABS (Anti-lock brake system) and the traction control systems work together. When the computer senses a fault in 1 system, both are disabled. You just won't have the anti-lock feature or the limited slip (traction control) feature. Most likely the problem is with one of the ABS wheel sensors. HTH. -Jim
