Unfortunately thats just the way the traction control system works. My buddy's saleen hollywood does the same thing. Kind of pointless on a performance car. My advise is to turn it off before you enter the road. Just remember that everytime you start your car it will turn the system back on.

Traction light comes on when accelerating over 110kms car feels like it hits a flat spot - in dry road conditions

What model, year and powertrain? Not knowing makes it difficult to say. Consider looking at wheel balance, strut and or shocks for leaks. Anything that would cause vibration to send a incorrect value to the computer that controls traction and speed.

That button you're pushing is the traction control button. You're turning traction control on & off. You use on slippery and wet roads. You might check Ebay for an owners manual.

How to put in four wheel drive


(a) Four-wheel drive control

Use the four-wheel drive control lever and center

differential lock button to select the following transfer and

center differential modes.

The "H" and "L" position of the four-wheel drive control lever

provides either lock or unlock mode of the center differential

depending on the center differential lock button position.

Use the center differential lock system if your wheels get stuck

in a ditch, or when you are driving on a slippery or bumpy

surface. When the center differential is locked, the vehicle

stability control system is automatically turned off and the

center differential lock and "VSC OFF" indicator lights come on

because the function that controls engine performance

As soon as the center differential lock switch is turned

on, the "VSC OFF" indicator light comes on. After the

wheels are out of the ditch or off the slippery or bumpy

surface, turn the center differential lock switch off.

Make sure the center differential lock indicator light and

vehicle stability control system off indicator light turn


"H" (high speed position, center differential unlocked):

Lever at "H", center differential lock button left out

Use this for normal driving on all types of roads, from dry

hard-surfaced roads to wet, icy or snow-covered roads. This

position gives greater economy, quietest ride, least wear and

better vehicle control.

"H" (high speed position, center differential locked): Lever

at "H", center differential lock button pushed in

Use this for greater traction when you experience a loss of

power, such as wheel slipping, in the center differential unlock


"N" (neutral position): Lever at "N"

No power is delivered to the wheels. The vehicle must be


"L" (low speed position, center differential unlocked):

Lever at "L", center differential lock button left out

Use this for maximum power and traction. Use this for climbing

or descending steep hills, off-road driving, and hard pulling in

sand or mud.

In this mode, the braking feeling that occurs when the wheels

are negotiating a sharp corner is further reduced than in the "L"

(low position, center differential locked) mode.

"L" (low speed position, center differential locked): Lever

at "L", center differential lock button pushed in

Use this for maximum power and traction. Use this for hard

pulling in situations the vehicle cannot negotiate even in the "L"

(low speed position, center differential unlocked) mode. Also,

using this mode when driving down steep off-road inclines will

help contribute to increased vehicle stability.

Hi, the TC stands for traction control, and there is a button that must have been hit, once the cear ignition was recycled, it went back to normal. Use traction control at slippery road conditions, and this will transmit power to the wheels through the abs system, resulting in the best traction. Thanks...Coop

Anti-Lock brake light and traction off light came on

U have most likely damaged a wheel sensor ring, in order to ID the one you damaged u will need to have the ABS/TRACTION CONTROL system tested for trouble codes, this will lead to the right area for repair.

I have a 2001 town and country and on the steering colum theres a button that says trac, what is that.

Probably Traction control for slippery roads. Helps put power to wheels that aren't spinning, rather than the ones that are, for better/safer traction while driving.
