A common cause for a Traction light is a faulty front ABS wheel speed sensor or harness. When the Anti lock brake computer sees a problem in the ABS syetm, it disables traction control as well.

My trac off abs and service vehicle soon lights are all on mechanic said wheel barrings are fine ,,whats the problem and is it safe to drive 425 mile out of town and back?

Probably just a wheel sensor out. It will be fine to drive that far and back. You wont have tracton control or antilock brakes. Meaning that if you slam on the brakes the tire can lock up and skid. When the abs is out it reverts to the old braking system that they used in all vehicles for decades.

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue

An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
