a problem with the ABS system can cause transmission shifting issues, and a damaged wheel sensor can sometimes damage the abs module
so, it is possible that the issues are linked, but I would say likely not in this case. it would be worthwhile to solve the abs issue prior to further diagnosing the transmission though, just in case.
I hope that is helpful, please let me know if you have further questions, or if I can clarify anything for you.
It has been my pleasure to help today and I wish you the best of luck with your vehicle.
