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.

I have had exactly the same problem on and off for 3 years now - and just solved it last week thanks to another computer site. Remove and disassemble both grounds from the top of both the left and right frame rails adjacent to the front corners of the engine block. Completely clean the green corrosion from the internal parts with fine sandpaper and add dielectric grease then re-assemble. Clean the mounting bolt and frame hole while you're at it. Sounds time consuming and difficult, but it ain't. No more than 45 minutes combined. I am a technical airhead so if I can do it so can you. What clued me in was the problem always occurred around wet or humid weather. Also, the clock would always lose time overnite. That has ceased also. Good luck. Anyone know why my left headlite, when deployed, vibrates and shimmys??? Sully email@example.com

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.

You'll need to have the codes read from the computer. You will have a code that indicates one of the front wheel sensors is bad. This could be the case, but they are very expensive as they are built into the wheel bearing assemblies. It is more likely that the wiring harness between the frame and the part of the front spindle that holds the harness, has broken internally. It is a very common problem and can be repaired with a new wiring harness section or by tracking down the fault and repairing it.
