Traction control light fading on and off?

My traction control light has been fading on and off at random, and never stays off for longer than a minute usually. I don;t think it is doing anything to the car, but I do seem to feel a slight shudder while driving sometimes, not sure if they are hand in hand. The shuddering almost feels like the engine is missing a little, but I got some new plugs, going to see if that stops it. But, could the traction control be causing this? If so, any solutions, I can't seem to find anything.

Had my light come on one day at start up. It stayed on about a minute or 2 and then went off. Funny thing is I do not have traction control or even abs.

This forum is confusing sometimes. Figured when I posted this in the svt section that I was posting in the right place? Would make sense. Anyways, if I was to pull the fuse for the traction control would it be an issue?

The reason I had moved it is because you had it in the SVT Performance section. That section is meant to discuss performance upgrades for the SVT. Your topic was more on general maintenance and electrical issues than a performance upgrade.
