I am sorry your having this problem

the BCM is usually not involved or would cause the ABS and or the TCS lights to come on

all of those systems are run through the ABS system and anytime there is any kind of ABS fault it will turn off any system that needs the ABS signals to operate correctly until the ABS issue is corrected

90 % of these are a simple wheel speed sensor issue where the wiring to one of the wheel sensors or the sensor / hub and bearing are bad which will send a wrong wheel speed to the ABS and trigger these lights

usualkly a shop pulling or you pulling the ABS code numbers set will say which wheel is reading wrong then once you know that it is the wiring or connection at the wheel or the sensor and or hub/bearing being the issue

if you have any questions please ask as i do not get credit for my work until you rate us here at Justanswer
