Hi,my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to try to assist you with this.I may need more information in some cases to help with answering your question.
Both of the issues here are most likely related.Most likely one of the wheel speed sensors is sending an incorrect wheel speed signal which in turn limits the vehicle speed and turns on the service traction light.I would have the wheel speed sensor signals checked to see if one or more are found to be faulty and the affected sensor replaced if one is found at fault.
Thanks Pete
