resolve the faults,been that way since 1981
Anytime you get a light on your dash, you have
a possible system failure
Get it fixed,don't continue to use it

The IPC detects a loss of serial data communication with the EBCM
Traction Control System (TCS)
When drive wheel slip is noted while the brake is not applied, the EBCM will enter traction control mode.
The EBCM uses a 5-volt pulse-width modulated (PWM) signal to request the PCM to reduce the amount of torque to the drive wheels. The PCM reduces torque to the drive wheels by retarding spark timing and by commanding the throttle actuator control. The PCM uses a 5-volt PWM signal in order to report to the EBCM the amount of torque delivered to the drive wheels.
You would need a factory grade scan tool to check data PID's - parameter identification , all the sensors work within a specific voltage range 1- 5 volts an you can see this on a good scan tool !
The Traction control is part of the ABS system an there a several DTC possible
DTC B0827 DTC B0828 DTC B2745 DTC C0035 DTC C0035 or C0040 DTC C0040 DTC C0055 DTC C0110 DTC C0191 DTC C0201 DTC C0220-C0229 DTC C0240 or P0856 DTC C0244 or P1689 DTC C0245 DTC C0267 or C0268 and C067 or C068 DTC C0550 DTC C0899 DTC C0900
You best bet is to take it to a qualified repair shop !

The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status
The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.
The traction control switch is a input to the body control module, with a scan tool hooked up an looking at BCM data ,check for conformation the traction control switch is turning on an off !
SERVICE TRACTION SYSTEM The IPC illuminates the SERVICE TRACTION SYSTEM indicator in the message center when the electronic brake control module (EBCM) detects a malfunction in the traction control system. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination. The SERVICE TRACTION SYSTEM indicator illuminates for 60 seconds when the condition is present. The IPC sends a class 2 message to the radio in order to activate an audible warning.
TRAC OFF The IPC illuminates the TRAC OFF indicator when the following occurs:
The electronic brake control module (EBCM) inhibits the traction control system due to a malfunction in the traction control system. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
The body control module (BCM) detects that the traction control switch has been pressed (signal circuit is low). The BCM sends a class 2 message to the EBCM in order to disable traction control. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination. The BCM sends a class 2 message to the radio in order to activate an audible warning.
