Traction control light comes on. And also Check engine light comes on. And when i press the accelerator , the engine control engaged very quick and often.
Traction control and anti-locks(ABS) lights come on there is sensors that are pluged in behind the rotors check and see if they are disconected or loose sometimes when you change your brake pads they might come loose and not making contact.

Try bleeding your brakes for the abs light

When both lights go on, it's a wheel speed sensor that isn't giving proper data to the abs control module which is like a computer.
If you use the OBD-II ABS Brake scanner, you'll probably find one of the wheel speed sensors is open or shorted.
The abs and traction control both use wheel speed to determine how to brake.
I bought an Actron OBD-II Brake Scan Tool off of Amazon for $116 delivered. It paid for itself.
You probably will have to change a front hub (left or right) in order to get the system working right again. The part goes for about $75 to $100 something.
And, if you have heavy duty J55 brakes, which is rare, then the hub costs over $750.00. That's the kind of hub I have on my Limousine from the year 1997.
Good luck fixing your abs/traction control problem.
