    I am puzzled? The traction control light on my dash has turned on and I cannot figure out how to turn it off? There are no other lights on the dash that have turned on, just the yellow traction control light? There are no On and off buttons to press either? Any information that will help me get this light to turn off would be appreciated..

    A seven year old 12v battery.
    I’d unhook the 12v and trickle charge it overnight, when you hook it back up the light will reset, if it comes back on there’s a problem, if it doesn’t, it was a symptom of a weak 12v, which really should be replaced if it’s the original.

    Any major auto parts store will read your obd2 port for problems for free.

    That sounds right to me.

    See if you can get the code to reset.
