Find out what error codes it has recorded with a diagnostic tool if you have one or take it to any shop and have them tell you what it is showing. Then you can figure out what the problem relates to and maybe fix it without just guessing. Traction Off light does not typically cause your car not to start or run. It is a brake related warning. Go back to basics - fuel, air, spark to get it running.
