SOURCE: abs and tcs off lights are on,
These lights are on because the system has a fault and it has disabled itself, so you have no anti-lock brakes or traction control right now, you will have to have the system tested for trouble codes by a shop with the proper test equipment, a GM dealer is your best bet.

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

Its the abs sensor, if you encounter an ice patch or snow you won't even be able to stop because the pedal will will push back and make the rip grind noise. If you pull the ABS fuse out, you won't have ABS but you can stop and you won't have the grind noise and back pressure for now. Its safer to not have ABS when the sensor is faulty.

check the fuse under the hood, you may have to disconnect batterty to do so, this fuse goes and is hundreds of dollars cheaper than if it is something else~! If the ABS IS broken and you are comfortable without it, just remove the fuse and the whole ABS system is disabled leaving you standard non-abs braking without doing any harm.

Hello! This indicates a fault with the wheel speed sensor/ABS sensor. Any major auto parts retailer can pull the details of this code (which sensor) for free, which will help you identify if the wiring is loose or damaged or if the sensor will need to be replaced. If you need to replace the sensor - you will need to replace the entire wheel bearing assembly, as the sensor is internal.
Thanks for using FixYa!
