Your traction control is automatic, you shouldn't have to activate at all. If the light is staying on that means you have a problem with the traction control system.

Light comes on "Traction Active" and wheels lock down.


When the Engine Control Module encounters problems, it will also disable the traction control system. Scanned the ECM to know fault codes stored there, repairing this codes and clearing the codes will turn off the Traction indicator and allows the traction control to work once again.

If the Traction Control light is coming on, the traction control is activating and can cause a jerking problem. Nothing last the life of the vehicle, however the timing chain should not need to be changed at 49,000 miles. If it does, I would have them do it under warranty. See if you can get the codes and send them to me. That way we can get a better ideal of what is going on. Could you please tell me what these codes stand for?

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

What is traction stability control light for?


It has 2 functions.

1. to let you know that your Traction and Stability Control System is active. This means that your tires are slipping or your car is leaning and the ststem is actively taking corrective action. This should only cause the light to come on for a few seconds at a time.

2. To let you know that the Traction and Stability Control System is disabled. It may be because the button has been pushed to turn it off or it may be due to a malfunction in the system. Thjis will cause the light to come on and stay on. If it is staying on and it is not because you have turned it off, then the system will have to be diagnosed to find out what the malfunction is that has caused it.

Abs light is on and tractiioncontrol light says off but cant turn it back on with switch


abs light means that a problem is being sense in the anti lock brake system, Traction control only activates when needed and is not related to the abs light, if you turn the traction control on and try driving and making the car slide the traction control will activate.but as for the abs light you need to get your brakes checked.

P0300 code with the traction contol light popping on


Yes it does,the traction control is controlled threw the p c m,and if the tire size has changed there will be a vehicle speed sensor sendig the wrong information.Check with the dealer on what needs to be changed to accomodate the tire change,I think it will be a reprogram to the p c m.

Traction control light comes on when wheels are not skidding


the major difference in the tire size is enough to cause the traction control to activate the car sees a speed difference between the front and rear tires and thinks it is slipping it will continue until you replace the other two tires
