Need Help With Traction Control!!!!

My traction control is off and wont go back on, its stuck off for some reason. I have turned the car off... and on and left it off for a whole night in my garage and its still stuck on. i have tried holding in the button for minutes at a time and pressing the mode and set buttons and virtually every button in the car and holding them in and trying different combinations and the traction control still wont come back on... not that this is a huge problem but i live in Baltimore, MD and we have been getting some rain and possibly some snow sleet tomorrow into fri and this is my primary car so i dont wanna wreck it because ive only had it for 2 months, can anyone help me??? thank you!!!

Try disconnecting the battery. I looked it up on the service manual and it says that if your T/C is allways on it can be one of two things your Electronic Brake Control Module is bad or your Instrument Cluster is malfunctioning.

is it possible that the bulb is bad and the TC is actually working??
Easy enough to find out.

A problem with rear ABS sensors would shut it off too. Sometimes there's mud between the sensors and the 'rings' on the halfshafts. Take a look there, as well as the connections. Good luck.

well apparently it was my tail lights causing the problem , i got those led lights put in and they were pulling too many ohms or something and i need a resisitor which i still have to figure out but if i have my stock lamps in there are no problems so if you have diff tail lights in that could be your problem!! gl

Might be a given, but have you checked your fusebox for blown fuses?
