My service vehicle soon and trac off lights are on but my anti lock brakes still work just fine just like normal nothing is wrong with my brakes I know this because I checked. Any ideas why these lights would be on but my abs still works? It's also been super cold here for a long period of time. Wonder if that doesn't have something to do with it.

The abs works because there is a problem with the traction control which is seperate from the abs. The traction keeps the wheels from slipping while acceleration and the abs keeps the wheels from slipping while braking. You need to have the engine computer scanned for codes and traction computer scanned for codes. Let me know the exact code numbers not code descriptions? You might even need a scan tool to fix it.
