REPAIR ABS AND SHOULD FIX BOTH. MOST LIKELY SENSOR OR CIRCUIT.

THAT IS WHAT EVERYBODY DOES FIRST. CHECK FOR OBVIOUS DAMAGE TO WIRE AND CONNECTOR. A GOOD SCANNER IS A MUST!!
ONE THAT CAN MONITOR WHEEL SPEED FOR ALL SENSORS.

codes pertain to circuit not always the parts seek help to diag circuit

Checked fuses and tried the start with your foot on the brake to attempt to feel and or hear the ABS System function.
I can attempt to clear the code with the scanner and the light usually blinks off then back on.

UPDATE
today I decided to start running a wire continiuty test I found behind the right front headlight a pinched wire
Took it apart and it was broken
I fixed the break started the car cleared te codes and WALLA the light went off came back on and went back off
So far te traction control and the ABS liight are still off.
Thank you for all the help
