Ok, so I got my OBD2 scanner, used FORScan on my iPhone, and drove the car a little.

My symptoms are this:
1. Start car, see TC and ABS lights on. Brake light on, only because of handbrake.
2. Put handbrake down, Brake light turns off.
3. Start driving, get up to about 2k RPM and feel heavy drag on car, engine starts sputtering, like it's not getting fuel. Brake pedal is extremely firm, seems like ABS must be pressurizing the system.
4. Stop, mess around with brake pedal, press it a few times, and if I'm lucky, the car will actually accelerate.
5. Brake light turns on after I reach about 10 MPH.

I used the Veepeak OBD2 BLE scanner, for anyone looking for a quality one.

The only codes I see on the ABS module, even once the brake light is illuminated, are the rear wheel speed sensors.

Just realized I didn't re-scan for errors after driving the car, might need to do that again.

Ok, wow! We are absolutely having the exact same issue. So I also got my scanner. And low and behold the abs codes were both the rear speed sensors as well. I was starting to think that since I replaced my rear calipers and got my parking brake workng. Maybe me now using the parking brake is causing the cables to stick. But like you it seems like the engine is stalling. Which definitely makes me think TC\ABS issue. It does seem odd both rear abs sensors are bad. So I was thinking module as well. Just have some testing to troubleshoot this. Between the two of us. We'll get it figured out.
