You need to have the computer scanned to identify where the problem is coming from. The two systems work together.

Let me know what you find.

It is a warped disc rotor. Very common in this model

Glad you got it fixed. However, I'm really surprised that a warped rotor would set the light.

Take care and let us know if you have questions in the future.

It does because it will at times cause the break to not fully release and you will get the left and right wheel running at different speeds. The traction control will not beable to correct for it and throws an error.

The strange feeling in the brake is a pulsation right?

They must have really been warped. And yes, that is a brake pulsation you feel in the brake pedal. Another thing that confuses me is how could the wheel spin at a different speed than the other? Was it skidding?
