Hello, my name is***** traction light coming on points toward a failing wheel speed sensor which is built into bearing assembly or connection. Start by checking connections at wheel speed sensors, if good you will need to use a scantool capable of reading live wheelspeed sensor data then whatever one is erratic needs to be replaced. The running rough is most likely related to check engine light. Does check engine light ever flash? Thanks.
