Time to scan for the codes to determine what is tripping the lights. Could be as simple as a wheel sensor failing. Take the car into your mechanic for further diagnostics. If you want to try to repair yourself, have a local auto parts store scan for codes and post them back here.

A wheel bearing probably needs replaced. A bad bearing will cause both traction control and check engine lights to activate.
