    You need to have this checked right away as it sounds like the brake pads are completely worn out and burning or creating hot spots on your brake rotors and you can find a repair shop here www.repairpal.com/directory

    one of your wheel bearings is lose and needs to be changed that is where the ABS and traction control sensors are. Because the wheel bearing is lose the sensor thinks you are skiding because it is moving away from the wheel assembly( are you getting alot of road noise when driving) another sign of a bad wheel bearing

    I'm having the same problem as far as the ABS and Traction control light coming on. I have a 05 chevy Equniox and when ever I start the truck and go to pull off the brakes starts to vibrate and is hard to stop until the ABS and Traction control light comes on and then your able to brake with no problem but the lights stay on. I just replaced the rotors, brake pad & abs wheel speed sensor and still have the same problem with abs and traction control light coming on...Any advise of what next to do??
