Traction Control problem light comes on
The traction control problem light comes on on the dashboard even though traction control is turned off. It usually comes on more quickly during warmer weather than in the cold weather. Actually, it comes on whether TC is on or off. It appears to be heat related but I am not sure of that. Happens when driving but then stays on until the engine is turned off. I first noticed it last year and mentioned it to the Ford dealership techs but received no definitive answer. I even asked what would happen if I did nothing and all they could say was I might not have an operating ABS system then. The check engine light does not come on in conjunction with the TC problem light. In fact, I have never had the engine light come on.
