Traction Control seized up

So I was driving around town and then my traction control light turned on and the car felt super weird the brakes felt engaged.. I have no idea what happened.. Weird part is I did some pulls and it went away.. But now I turned my car back on and when it's in the gear P and I hit the brake it makes a weird click noise.. It never usta make this noise.. In every other gear N-D-S-R no clicking noise.. What the hell is going on or what the hell did I do? Here's a video of the clicking Traction control turned on and off loss of power 2014 V 6 - now clicks when I brake in park - YouTube

That is weird I hope someone on here knows about this, and hopefully not that serious. Did you try to unplug the battery for a few minutes and hopefully it will clear up.

Same thing happened to me too. I was going back to home and took a curve a bit fast, the ESP started to work(I was not expecting that), brake pedal shaked. After that I went home safe without any problems, thought ESP did its job. But in the morning when I got into car to go to school, I realized the same weird noise in P when I stepped on the brake pedal to select D. Tried braking several times just like you did in your video and it kept doing that noise. I had to go to school and just pulled it to D and drove away. Everything seems normal now but I wonder why it did happen...My car is also a V6 2014.

I don't have an automatic but I'm assuming you need to depress the brake to change gears from park. The clicking sound sounds like that mechanism that allows you to change gears from park to any other gear. But I've no idea how it would be affected by the traction control system. Please keep us updated man! I'm really curious. Personally, my ABS system has randomly turned off and back on before while cruising at 40.

sounds to me like the traction control system thought you were you losing traction and applied the brakes to allow the tires to hook up. It happens to me when I leave the TC ON and break the back tires loose.
