You need to get the powertrain computer scanned for codes first. Some engine codes will disable the taction and stabliltak system.
If the engine codes are not the culpret for the other lights, then there may be a problem with a sensor for the traction or ABS.

That's exactly right. Many codes that will turn on the check engine light will also disable the traction or Stabilitrak system. Scanning the computer codes is the first step. Many of the large national part store chains will do this for free. They can only scan the powertrain computer (PCM) but most of them cannot scan the ABS computer. So if you get a scan just come back and tell us what the code number is and we will be a will to tell you if this will also disable ABS and stability control. The guy doing the free scan might not be able to tell you that. They just use generic tools to get the code number and a short description of what the code means. They really don't go into too much detail about what the code means, although they will sure try and sell you a part that is related to that code. LOL.
