May be 2 different problems. traction control uses wheel speed sensors--check sensor alignment and wiring.
Brake light on--check fluid level in reservoir.
I have a couple posts that may help:

Sounds as if it could be an A.B.S sensor fault, will need to be plugged in and checked for fault codes, This does'nt mean you will lose brakes it just means that in the event of heavy braking the ABS would'nt operate and niether will traction control

2001 monte carlo ss trac light is on how to solve

Trac Light is on to tell you that the traction is low. It senses this by "looking" at the wheel speeds. If one of the wheel speed sensors has failed, broke off, wire broken, or just dirty, the computer cannot "see" this wheel speed, and turns on the trac low light. This can also cause abnormal brake pad wear, if the car is equipt with traction control. The computer will begin to apply the brake on the wheel that is spinning faster. This will wear the pads out on the side that the computer is able to "see" the wheel speed. You need to get the sensors looked at. Check them to see if they are physically in place and the wires are hooked up.

Car is in security mode and wont start how do i get it out of security mode

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

2004 Monte Carlo "Trac off" light is on and "service traction system" warning is on and dinging. ABS light is also on. I was given code c1214 and c1226 software EBCM up-date? What is the problem?

The traction control and abs are both activated by the abs sensors located at all four wheels. It is common for those sensors to get covered in brake dust and get false or no signal. Also the wiring connections can become corroded over time. I am not sure what the codes are for but checking the sensors/wiring are where I would start.

I own a 2003 Monte Carlo SS and it is currently in the shop because my Traction Control Service light came on with the ABS light. When this occurred a grinding noise happened underneath the entire car and...

sounds like a wheel bearing, the abs/traction control sensor is inside the bearing as the bearing gets play in it the sensor is pulled further and further from the ring gear also when the bearing has play it can collapse the caliper leaving a space between the rotor surface and brake pad which means a soft pedal quick repedative pushes on the pedal might make it improve slightly as your pumping up the caliper also the bearing will make a roaring sound that gets louder as you pick up speed with the wheels hanging down tip the wheel top to bottom and see if there is play but not every bad bearing will have play you can feel hope this helps good luck

ABS and Traction control warning lights come on independtly and jointly. I believe the problem is the hub mounted sensor. How do I replace it.This is on a 2003 Monte Carlo SS.

hi if you know for sure it's a wheel speed sensor
remove that wheel
remove the caliper and caliper bracket
remove the brake rotor
there are 3 bolts on the other side of the knuckle(13mm)
remove them
remove the axle nut(1 5/16)
remove the hub bearing assembly(you may need to use a hammer on the hub flange)
hope this helps

Brake warning light on

If you have an abs brake system, you need a code scanner hooked up to it to pin point why the light is on.Autozone can do this, if you have one near you.
