The TCS (Traction Control System) works as a function of the Brake ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) and both lights could well have been related.
In the case of a system failure, they revert to a passive mode until repaired; allowing the vehicle to operated as though it was equipped with conventional brakes.
I'd have it attended to at the earliest convenience. It's a safety issue, and you shouldn't let it go too long

pull your engine code and fix it. Most likely your traction control light will go out after that....
