RE: Traction Control Light stays on
After driving in the snow this morning, I realized I posted the incorrect information. When the traction control light is illuminated on yourinstrument panel- the traction control system is OFF. Toturn it on, press the button previously described. At which point, the light will go out, indicating the system is ON and ready for any potential slip. When the system is activated due to a slip, the light on your instrument panel will flash, to signify it's correcting the slip.
I have personally found that the traction control system (and ABS systems) are a bit oversensitive. To that point, I often turn my traction control system off and use my manual transmission to control wheel spin. It's just a personal preference, but you may want to try it - even if your wagon is an automatic. Give it a whirl!
