It turns on automatically when you restart the car - If this is not happening you have something that has failed, maybe the switch

There is no "switch" per se' that you have access to - there is a procedure you have to follow to turn the function off

The traction control turned off on its own. I prefer having the traction control on. I feel that I have better control of the steering. How do I turn it back on?

If it turned off on its own the is a malfunction in the system. You will need to have it looked at by a repair facility
