Expert:  ggrote1 replied 4 months ago.

99 % of there are causes usually by one of the wheel speed sensors reading bad or sending a wrong signal to the ABS computer which is where the traction and stabilitrak is operated

usually it is one of the front sensors

usually once the codes or code is read it will say which wheel is having the sensor issue

the car is perfectly safe to drive until a shop can look at the car as all those systems do is shut off when the lights are lit up in the dash and the regular brakes ect.. will work just fine
