Wife emailed me yesterday- said T/C light was on the dash.....

Few hrs later, she emailed me that the light is gone.

Knowing my wife--- I knew what the issue was.


Once home, I asked- you had your coffee right? Yes she said.

I told her she most likely pressed the T/C button by the drink holder....
this caused T/C OFF message to come on, and caused the T/C amber light to come on.

The reason the light was off- when she restarted the vehicle again later in the day---
well T/C always resets to ON. Has to be manually turned off.

I went ahead and scanned for Pending or CEL- None found....

Told her to press the button next time if it happens again.

Our fox terrier is the usual culprit for stepping on that button. Turns it off all the time and I have to reset!!

Relax, as rbarrios correctly posted above Traction Control will automatically reset itself to on every time the engine is started.
Stabili Trak will do the same.
