Your car has a slot under the steering wheel. Some cars will have a cover over it. It will be easy to find. Just plug in an OBD2 tool into that slot. You can borrow one from the autozone if you don't have one. They are under $100, and I think every car owner should have one. It will tell you what is wrong with your car, taking out a lot of guess work. It will also reset the MIL (engine light).
You may have a problem with your traction system, which is often tied into the ABS, as they share use of the wheel speed sensors.
The problem should be reveiled with the scan tool. It could be an electrical short, damaged wheel hub manets or to speed sensors in wheels, bad control module,...you can check the sensors at each wheel and the teeth in the hub for damage...need to get under the car and possibly take off tires for access. They are on the inside of the rim at the hub. The sensors pull right out. Put a small film of wheel grease on it before you put back in. Use flashlight to look in the hole it came out of to see the magnet wheel.

TC means traction control you can turn it off after you start your car but it's recommended to keep it on while driving in rain, snow. This automatically goes on when you start the car. The check engine light means you either need a O2 sensor your car, may have three of these or it's your MAF Sensor Mass Air Flow Sensor located on your air intake this will make your engine hesitate or stall if it's this sensor. But if it's your O2 Sensor then you should take it to a mechanic and have them run the codes so they can get the right sensor for your car it is an easy fix but with the engine light on it could cause serious damage and will not pass your emissions with this light on .
