Problem with the ABS. The Traction Control is off because it uses the ABS to control traction. As this is part of the TC system it has also shut down. Have the problem with the ABS repaired by a professional and both will start working again.

Traction control is part of the ABS (antilock brake) module.

If the abs/traction light is on you have a problem with the system. When the problem is fixed the light will reset itself after a short drive.
Check that you have the traction control button turned on.
The abs computer has detected a malfunction and set a code.
From what I know your abs is what has the traction control built in, your abs controls your master cylinder, so if you are having a traction control problem you are going to want to replace your abs box not your master.
