Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
My 2004 traction Control switch stopped working when I spilled coffee on it. It is now in the off position. It is on the center console.
How do i remove it for cleaning or replacement?
Try it, use rubbing alcohol and q tips to clean it all, you may need to clean the inside of the units as well.... Dip the q tip in the alcohol, do not pour the alcohol on the units.

have the car scanned with a scanner capable of reading ABS codes,get back to me with the code and we'll go from there. sounds like like one of the wheel sensors is bad. this controls both ABS and TRACTION CONTROL

Try pulling up the brake pedal with your foot,Sometimes your brake doesnt come back all the way,and the brake switch keeps the cruise from working.Also,check the fuse.If those answers dont help,It could be the swith itself is bad.Those can be bought at a parts store.

Its the abs sensor, if you encounter an ice patch or snow you won't even be able to stop because the pedal will will push back and make the rip grind noise. If you pull the ABS fuse out, you won't have ABS but you can stop and you won't have the grind noise and back pressure for now. Its safer to not have ABS when the sensor is faulty.

These landrovers have a lot of Electrical faults.The first thing i would recomend is to change the switch.Has this is the cheapest option.Hope that works for you.

Tips for a great answer:
For Chevrolet only, the shift lever is in FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) gear. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the powertrain control module (PCM) indicating the gear position.
For Pontiac and Oldsmobile only, the body control module (BCM) detects that the traction control switch is pressed (signal circuit is low). The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the BCM indicating the switch status.
The BCM detects that the park brake is engaged (signal circuit is low) and that the engine is on. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the BCM indicating the park brake status.
The PCM detects certain malfunctions and is unable to perform torque reduction requests from the EBCM. The EBCM receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating that traction control cannot be performed.
The EBCM detects a malfunction in the traction control system. The IPC receives class 2 messages from the EBCM requesting illumination of both the service vehicle soon and traction off indicators.
The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.
With the light lit there are DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the EBCM -
