Traction control light

Hi all

My traction control light won't go off

Haven't done any work to the car so it's suddenly come on and staying on.

Any ideas?

Have you checked to make sure you didn't accidentally hit the TC button?

Also, I left my MAF disconnected once on my VW and it made my TC light come on. No idea why the 2 would be connected but its something you could check.

Hi

Traction light was on before I played around with the MAF

It's been on a week or so. Tried pushing the button but nothing happens.

normally if the TC light stays on after the car is started that means the system failed the self test and has been disabled.

Bump. Anyone have a better idea why it would stay on.
