It came on today, it is very cold and lots of snow here, I knocked the snow out of my tires and it went off...but it came back on after I drove about 20 miles,,,, could it be the snow and ice causing the problem??

About the only semi-solution to your problem is weight and good tires. I used to fill the pickup bed with snow. Snow is free, heavy and always around when you need it and melts away when you don't. Good tires are essential as no matter which kind of differential you have if the tires can't grip you won't go anywhere.
It may have pushed one of you sensor back away from your tone wheel its a common problem,all you have to do is push the sensor back againts your wheel and it will set itself,I hope this helps you and thanks
Traction control systems measure wheel speed differences by various
methods to determine if one wheel is rotating faster than the other. A
heavier buildup of ice/snow could be affecting wheel rotation speed
causing the TCS to engage. ABS works by sensing slippage at the wheels
during braking, and continually adjusting braking pressure to ensure
maximum contact between the tires and the road. Suggest
clearing out the wheel wells now and periodically throughout the winter. Also remove ice/snow
build up between the wheel and the brake pads/rotor.
Could be a dirty or snow packed ABS sensor made brake light come on, not 100% sure on yur vehicle. Tire pressures will lower when colder, perhaps all related to snow & cold . If in garage, let it warm up & melt some snow & maybe yur troubles will disappear. I would check tire pressures regardless, they may have been borderline low, and cold caused it to go low enough to trip monitor.
Try disconnecting your battery for about 30 sec to reset the ABS computer. You probly have a trouble code stored in the ABS computer and the lights are letting you know there was a problem. If the light stays on after you reset computer then you will have to pull code to troubleshoot problem.
