The problem is most often caused by a defective wheel speed sensor for the ABS and traction control, there are four of them, it may be they are dirty or defective, take the wheels off the car (use safety stands) and follow the wires that go to wheel hub, at the end of the wire harness you will find the sensors, remove them (carefully, don't p[ull on the wires) and look for metal flakes attached to them, they are magnetic pickups so this metal can corrupt the signal and turn the waring light on, if they are clean then you will need the dealer to test the system for the trouble code that is present whenever the ABS/TC warning light is on, the parts are very expensive so guessing is very bad idea.

We were having this problem...have your wheel bearing checked out. There was a sensor in the drivers side wheel bearing...once we replaced it (because it was going out) the ABS and Traction Control warning lights stopped coming on.

SOURCE: My stability system and traction
All three systems rely on some of the same sensors in order to operate.
In this case most likely is wheel speed sensors. By far the most common problem.
The system will need to be scanned to find out which is the offending one and be repaired.
Not all scan tools have the capability to read ABS systems. Make sure whoever you take it to has this available. Most good shops will have this.
If you have further questions on this, please ask me here, be glad to help.
Thank you for using FixYa.
