Hello, beside the traction control light on you also hear or feel a noise? From wear?

Feel it in my rt foot when it happens
Expert:  HDGene replied 1 month ago.

Ok, if the traction control light is on, it is setting a code in the antilock brake system. The code could be related to a problem with a wheel speed sensor. this could be causing a false antilock brake event and making the abs pump motor run, causing the noise from the brake pedal. A diagnositc check for codes of the abs system needs to be done first to find out what code or codes are stored. A shop would need to do this, parts stores can only pull engine codes, not abs codes. Once you know the codes, you will know what area of the vehicle to inspect. You can do a visual inspection of the wheel speed sensors and tone wheels at each wheel. If a wire is broken or tone wheel the sensor reads off of is rusted or snapped or loose, it would need to be repaired/replaced.
