SOURCE: Engine light and ABS traction control light remain

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.

SOURCE: my abs, traction control and parking brake light

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

SOURCE: Car travels up to 3 miles ABS working, traction

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

Hello Tip.

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.

You would need to erase the trouble codes with a scanner or code reader to make the light go off. Then if the problem is fixed and no codes are set, the light should stay off.

If you have repaired them and the lights are still on, they need reset with a code reader. If they haven't been repaired, the lights will just come back on.

Several autoparts stores like Autozone, Oreilys and Advance will scan your vehicle for free and tell you what Codes are present. The scanners are different, so the store would need a scanner that has the ability to diagnose the traction control system with the ABS.

The Traction control works with the ABS to limit wheel slip. Intermittent flashing of the Traction light can occur, sometimes the brake pads are worn and do not respond as well as they should. The system counts the RPM of each wheel, applies braking and can interrupt power of the engine.

See what the scan shows.

You may have damaged one of the sensors or tore the wire off. You will have to take it to someone with a, "high quality scanner" and have them get the code out of the computer on your car. Most $100 scanners won't pull the ABS codes out.
