Well, there is a button some place - be it in the dash or center console... I've never had an equinox, so not sure where it would be - if you have the owners manual, it should be in there... BUT if your car is runing slow and almost stalling, that has nothing to do with the traction control, so you've got some other issues goign on with your car - I'd get it to a mechanical and have them diag it ASAP...

The button in the 07 equinox is right next to the shifter in the center console
