you'll have to have it diagnosed at a repair shop to pinpoint the source. sorry, but thats how they make them. you could buy your own but it'll cost about 200$

The ABS sensor is a speed sensor also for Traction Control. This is why both lights are on , One of your front ABS sensors are bad or disconnected, or has a pinched wire.

Because you apparently have no knowledge of OBD govt emission
systems, that have been on our vehicles for the last 30 years
Any light on the dash, is a possible system malfuntion
You surely have heard of codes you get from the diagnostic
connector under the dash
You use the codes to follow a trouble chart, to a solution and repair
That is the short version
You need a local repair shop,the days of working on your own
car in the driveway, left about 1981 with the OBD1 and now OBD2
Systems (1996 thru 2011)

You have a broken wiring harness to one of the front wheel sensors. This is a very common problem. You'll have to have the abs codes read to know which side, and then you can either repair or replace that piece. As the front wheels swing back and forth as you steer, the wires leading out of the fender well to the wheel hub fatigue and break inside the insulation, making it almost impossible to see from the outside where the break is. If you have an ohmmeter and are handy with tools, you can check each front harness for contnuity while wiggling it. This is a little tricky, but it will work if you can't find a way to read the codes.

SOURCE: My stability system and traction
All three systems rely on some of the same sensors in order to operate.
In this case most likely is wheel speed sensors. By far the most common problem.
The system will need to be scanned to find out which is the offending one and be repaired.
Not all scan tools have the capability to read ABS systems. Make sure whoever you take it to has this available. Most good shops will have this.
If you have further questions on this, please ask me here, be glad to help.
Thank you for using FixYa.
