Welcome to the forums.

Since this is a topic/technical issue which will require replies, and not a "New Member Introduction", this thread has been moved to the model specific forum.

Once you disable it, the traction control light will stay on. How are you speed sensors? Usually the most common culprits with this kind of thing. I remember having a similar issue with mine, all it took was cleaning out the sensor with some electronic cleaner and everything got fixed.
