Now got back from mechanic and Traction control is disconnected and ABS light is on . Is there an electronic harness connector for both of these and are they unplugged or what.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You can check to see if the ABS module is unplugged for some reason, but it shouldn't be. The module is in the left front corner of the engine compartment. Make sure it's plugged in and there is no visible damage to wiring or the connector.

You can also ensure that fuses are good, if the ABS module isn't operable due to a blown fuse then it will cause what you're having.

If fuses are good and you're unable to locate a problem visually then a scan tool will be necessary to further diagnose the problem.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
