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.

I'll try that and post the results back here , thanks tom


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

Did you figure out the issue? I just had the same problem today with my ATS 3.6

I just had this happen to my 2006 Cadillac DTS. My service traction & service stability both came on and are staying on. My motor seems to be running a little rough also. Not gonna drive it much till Thursday! Gotta take it to my mechanic Thursday! Dope fully the repairs won't break me up right before Christmas!
