Most likely a wheel speed sensor is defective.. have the abs scanned at an autozone or another garage to determine which one it is and have it replaced.

How do i service traction system

You will need to diagnose the code first. The traction control and abs systems are tied together, usually there is a bad wire on the front end. The way the wires are routed for the abs system makes for cut or pinched wires to one of the front hubs causing an open circuit to one of the sensors for the abs system. This causes the traction control system to quit working. Diagnosing the trouble code should tell you where to look

Why does the "service traction system" and "service ABS" light to come on when driving?

The service ABS light on while driving means that the ABS wheel speed sensor is defective or a broken wire that goes to the sensor. You now only have regular braking. This means that you can now lock up one or more wheels with hard braking. Then the car can swerve either left or right while braking hard. The traction control must also rely on the ABS wheel speed sensor to keep both front wheels spinning at the same speed for safety reasons. This prevents loss of control of your car while getting better traction with the tires.

Service ABS and traction control systems is displayed in my 2005 pontiac montana sv6. New breaks have been installed and lights and system still on. Scanned and shows no sign of sensor issues

well this is a sensor problem. just cause you didnt get a fault code dome mean that the sensors are ok. Remove the abs Fuse from the fuse box under the hood. Drive the car and get a feel for the braking. Replace the fuse and drive again, you will notice one or more of the wheels dont hold as it fast or faster than the rest. Replace that sensor.

The ABS control Module is going bad, that all, since the ABS and traction work together you will get both lights on. Take to a mechanic, expect to spend about $500.
