I am assuming that the shop is talking about wheel speed sensor that is installed at each wheel. It sounds like the ABS/Traction Control unit is unable to read a signal from one or more wheel speed sensor. My guess is that either a wire to the sensor/s is broken or the sensor is damaged. If a wheel had been damaged, then I would say this is possible for a sensor to go bad as well. If the sensor is damaged it is usually replaced as a bearing and sensor as a whole. In other words, if the sensor is bad, the bearing also has to be replaced.
