    Need to scan for fault codes... sounds like a dodgy ABS sensor and damaged ABS wiring

    Yes but it could also be triggered from a duff sensor relating to the ESP/ABS... scan first then see what comes up... haldex lock up due to dodgy controllers etc are more noticeable a low speed and doesn't have to be full lock... the fact the traction light is on too suggests another fault
