Did you reset your oil life after changing the oil? As for the "Traction Off" light, it is related to your braking system and is actually telling you the car has lost its anti lock braking capability. Your brakes will continue to work but not in an anti lock mode. Your Traction Control system actually uses the brakes to slow down a spinning wheel. Usually just a wheel sensor causes this.
