The traction control system applies the brakes when it thinks a wheel is spinning, and it makes a distinctive grinding sound. Did you have the steering wheel turned when this occurred? An intermittent connection in the wiring from the wheel speed sensor to the computer can make the computer think the wheel is spinning. The wires sometimes get damaged by the flexing that occurs when the suspension travels up and down. And turning the wheel can cause the damaged wire connection to become intermittent.Just notice a kinda grinding/knocking noise in front of car when applying brakes lightly. Tried looking through wheels at pads and they seem like the have plenty of meat left. Car has just 50,000 miles. 2015 LT Midnight Edition
If it only happens when you apply the brakes, then I agree with the others, it's something in the pads/rotors, and not the ABS/traction control.tj, I do my own oil changes and brakes etc., the car is do for an oil change this weekend, so while I am at it, I guess I will pull the tires and take a look at the rear pads for wear.

I might even call and see if our local O'Rileys does resurfacing of the rotors and may just go ahead and throw new pads on it as well.
ICUBB, I thought that as well at first, but not so sure now, that's why I found the sound went away in reverse, hopingif it was stone it would pop out.
