Question about 2001 Buick Century
Have they checked the PCM/ECM fuses? some might be bad or the computer itself. does the car run poorly, bad fuel economy? you could go the the emission check place to have it checked. for alot less money it will tell you if it is computer related before spending more for a mechanic to analyse it .$15 in WA State.

The ABS system including pump may be faulty which is quite common. You will have to take this to dealership or mechanic. Either there is a bad pump or a fault in the electrical system

Depending on what your car is equipped with. Antilock brake systems work in conjunction with traction control.So if the antilock system has a fault, traction control will also default system off. It may also turn on low pressure in a tire if your car has that feature.
In the bearing/hub assembly on your Buick there is a sensor ring that rotates with the axle. A sensor is positioned close to that ring to read wheel speed.
A failed bearing doesn't necessarily damage the sensor, nor will a bad sensor mean the bearing is bad. But on your vehicle if one fails the assembly must be replaced as a unit.
I hope this answers your question.If you have another leave it in a comment and I will answer you.

You could be encountering computer failure. Needs to be looked at.

You most likely have a bad wheel speed sensor. The first thing to do is inspect the wires coming down to the front wheel speed sensors and check for any obvious damage (this is VERY common). If you don't see anything that looks obviously damaged or broken, then you will have to scan your Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and your Antilock Brake System Module (ABS) for fault codes that will lead you to the cause of the problem.
