Is it just traction or traction and ABS?

You should have this looked at by a mechanic IMO. I had a similar issue with a Mitsu Outlander SUV, which kept showing the Traction/Stability Control was off when I started it up and began driving. They had to replace a module that controls this. Having Traction Control disabled can adversely affect driveability and stabilty, especially when the ground is wet...BUT also helps maintain better control in dry conditions. Mine was covered under warranty, so now idea on cost. It may not be too much $$ to diagnose and repair though...Good Luck! :)

in the manual it just says to turn the car off then on again, but if it happens too much, there might be a problem with your speed sensors. i have personally driven with this light on for a while and did not see any bad signs, however i do not recommend you do this you should see a mechanic so they can help you if it is indeed a speed sensor as it is a common error with these cars.
