My abs light and traction control light is on together iv been told this maybe due to 1 sensor. If so we're can I find these sensors my brakes are fine but it wheel spins frequently even more when on hill start or slight incline and it's not due to a heavy foot .

You need the ABS ECU scanned for faults then replace whichever wheel sensor comes up as faulty.
As to finding them they are on the wheel hubs and read off segmented rings that rotate when the wheel rotates.
Pretty easy to spot when the wheels are off.
