Default traction control light

My traction control light use to come on with the abs light but it would go out if I turn the car off and on but now it comes on and stays on. I had all three hubs replaced but I might need some back brakes do you think that could be the problem?

It would help to know what year and model you have. Please put that in your signature.

For starters, it'* usually a WSS, so check your connections behind the hubs. The other most likely culprit is the PMV assembly underneath your airbox. It'* rarely the EBCM (computer) located on the firewall to the right of the gas pedal (inside the car).

You need to have the dealer scan it for faults.

One of many possibilities, actually. I'm not sure I'd put junkyard hubs on my car. I think that'* worse than using junkyard tires or struts.
