Default Traction Control light comes on

I am having a problem with my traction control light and abs light coming on, combined with a grinding noise around my left wheel when turning right.

Took to garage and computer said sensor needed replacing. This was done, but grinding noise is still there occasionally and a week later light is coming back on intermittently.

Any ideas what the problem might be?

Cheers

grinding is first sign of a wheel bearing , it might be that the sensor replaced was an abs sensor , this is getting dirty again with metallic grindings, get it up on a hoist or jack and check the wheel by seeing if it will move when you grasp it from the bottom of the tire by shoving it back and forth from top to bottom , if it does get the bearing changed out and spray the abs sensor with electrical cleaner .

I would check the ABS ring on the driveshaft, The most common issue I see with this fault is when the ring cracks and becomes loose on the CV joint. With the grinding noise I suspect this could be just the traction control kicking in due to the incorrect speed signal received from the ABS sensor.
