    I suspect you have one or more bad speed sensors. These are sensors that attach to each wheel hub and send information to your ABS and traction control systems. They are fairly easy to replace and not expensive. Many times you can try cleaning them as they may malfunction because of road grime and brake pad dust. You should first go to your mechanic or local auto parts store and have them hook up an OBDII scanner to the car and check for any fault codes. Most major auto part store chains like Auto Zone and NAPA will do it for free! This will tell you if any specific parts, sensors or modules are malfunctioning. It will save you hundreds of $$$ if you know what is wrong before replacing a lot of expensive parts. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions once you do the scan.
