Usually the traction control system.
If the light is on the system is turned off due to a problem that needs to be repaired.
Info should be in your owners manual.

Hyundai 2004 v6 need to replace starter-need to remove skid plate

This is more a dust cover. Look around the perimeter of it and remove the screws/bolts that you see. Start pulling down, if you missed one, it will be stuck there.

What is a yaw rate sensor & how does it affect braking?

This sensor detects a deviation of the vehicle from the centerline of the vehicle such as in a skid, the computer which is part of the skid control and abs system then adjusts the brake and throttle to pull the car out of the skid, the driver is not in control at that time until the vehicle skid is recovered, it is also a deceleration sensor. The yaw rate sensor does nothing under normal conditions

Parking Brake, ABS, Traction Control & Anti Skid lights on

One or more of the sensors in the wheels that are responsible for these functions is faulty. It is sending a signal that is mucking up the calculations that control the brakes and engine for traction control and anti skid. All of them need to be checked!

Check engine light, vehicle stability control and trac off light came on while driving

This series of lights indicate a problem with the braking system. The BRAKE light by itself means either the parking brake is on or the brake fluid level is low in the reservoir. But when the BRAKE light is on with these other lights, it's an ABS failure of some sort. In the vast majority of cases, this is usually caused by a bad or dirty wheel speed sensor. These sensors look somewhat like a bolt with wires on one end. The speed sensors detect the wheel speeds and send appropriate signals to the skid control ECU. Speed sensor rotors have rows of alternating N and S magnetic poles, and their magnetic fields change as the rotors turn. The speed sensors detect those magnetic changes and send pulse signals to the skid control ECU.

ABS Light is on but brakes seem fine.

On many systems, the abs light comes on if both brake lamps are blown. Have you checked that?

Had a reply in the form of a question. Looking for the answer. Last service the people informed of a leak from the rear main on the 2001 Frontier 4 x 4 six cyl with 70,000 plus miles. Had not been driven...

does your truck have a skid plate ...I think it does ...the place where you get it changed is not wiping the skid plate off due to where the oil drain plug is some of the old oil gets caught in the skid plate and will drip out over time ...that seems to be the problem...if not let me know
