Hi there:

It's possible that you have a few electrical gremlins along with the wheel bearing issue. The traction control light will be triggered when a sensor detects an issue with one of the many mechanical components that operates the steering and handling. Damaged wheel bearings may cause the error code to be stored in the ECM. However, since there are multiple other factors involved, it's probably a good idea to have one of our local mechanics inspect the check engine light for what error codes exists; so they can trace any damaged components and recommend the right corrective action.
