Sounds like you need your traction controll module checked.

Thank you. I forgot to mention that sometimes it makes a grinding noise too.

Your traction control not only keeps your wheels from spinning out of control,but also helps your vehicle from to much slippage. If there is grinding, you may want to get your brakes checked as well.

Taking my car into the shop today. This morning the ABS light and check traction contol system lights came on. Could the wheel bearings be involved?

There is a chance that they could be causing the grinding, I would have your garage check that as well.
