I have personally experienced ABS and Traction control problems in the past. My problem was due to a faulty wheel speed sensor. These are a time consuming and difficult fix if you do not have the proper tools, so your best bet is to bring it to an auto repair shop or even the dealer.
It could be a wheel speed sensor, or if you live in a place that's cold or has harsh roads, then it can be an ABS wire. If the lights on your dash come on for BOTH traction control and ABS, that's normal. Traction control system and ABS systems use alot of the same components and are linked. Another possibility is that the problem was fixed and the codes haven't been erased. But........ if you have -40�C winters... it will happen all the time, lol.
your ABS computer sets codes sort of like the one that might turn your "check engine" warning light on. Most garages will have the proper diagnostics to retrieve the code and tell you what is wrong. It could just be something as simple as a dirty wheel speed sensor.
The TCS light stands for Traction Control System. The light will come on if you turn the Traction Control Off. If you cannot just turn it off by pushing the TC button, Is the Check engine light on also? If it is the TCS light will come on as well. If it comes on without the check engine light being on then there is a problem with the TCS. You would have to have that diagnosed by the dealer.
Some traction control systems back off the engine throttle when a certain amount of wheel spin is detected; when over-done, this often makes the car feel as if the engine has stalled. My '05 Honda Accord Hybrid has such a system and it's bad to the point of being unsafe. You'll get halfway through an intersection and the car just stops moving. It won't start again until the gas pedal has been released for a second or two, but you have to turn off the traction control in order to get going in a reasonable amount of time. In a recent storm, the traffic light changed while I was trying to disengage the stupid thing. I should add that not all traction control systems behave this way; my '99 Chrysler LHS had excellent traction control that only had to be disabled once or twice a year (when the snow got really sticky). I've heard that the worst traction control systems are on Toyota Priuses.
