I'm sure it is always on, if you want it off, there is a switch above the steering wheel column ( between the steering wheel and the dash).

Hope it helps.

Button shows traction off but yo cannot push the button down.It seems that there is something locking it.It does work because I have used it before but I have forgotten what I did to unlock it

Yes as you look at it, it says trac off, but must be stuck as mine's just a light rocker action, then the warning comes up on the dash if it's off.

 

And it (the switch), won't stay down, and resets when the ignition is turned off again.

 Does your abs light illuminate when you switch on the ignition? 
Pretty sure mines was always showing trac off when I had an ABS fault, there may be other issues that cause it too though.

Hi,

Other than the stuck button (I've found one that has hardly any 'click' action, but it still works), if your TRAC OFF shows when you start and run, it's the same as mine at the moment. Mine is due to a faulty wheel speed sensor.

 

If you're lucky enough to have a full scanner, do a check on the ABS system and it'll tell you if a speed sensor is at fault, otherwise you'll need to test them yourself. If ABS light isn't showing then it'll probably just be the wheel speed sensor and nothing more complicated with the ABS system itself.

 

(FYI: I've had TRAC OFF illuminated as haven't got round to replacing the sensor. I can confirm if the sensor is disconnected totally you get TRAC OFF and BRAKE (the handbrake) light illuminated. ABS light seems to be triggered from another set of circumstances as mine isn't lit up (and yes the bulb works! ABS light should be on during first key position indicator test before starting)).

er hi guys, are we off at a tangent somehow!

 

On my reply I meant the switch itself showing trac, not a light.

Did you try with a bit of WD40 and pressing it few tens of times?
...I once dropped coffee on a switch and it stucked as it was glued.
Just a thought, hope it helps.

Hiya Qinteq,

 

huh what ? What ref to DTC's?

 

The OP asked how to switch ON the traction control, and said his switch was stuck.

And didn't mention a problem, and hasn't commented on - the other replies (so come on fella chip back in)

 

Has the OP @roberttherebel57 got TRAC OFF lit up on his dash below the mileometer / trip?

 

Or were you simply asking, as you were interested, as you didn't realise it's always on?

Sorry to open an old thread. But my dash shows track off and whatever I do with the switch it still shows track off. How do I put it on?

As the posts at the start, it's supposed to be always on unless you use the rocker switch. Or there is a problem.

I wonder if he ever got it sorted.... Yet another lack of information and feedback if it did or didn't get fixed!

Any warning lamps on the dash lit?

Try the key dance - turn to "on" 3 times in rapid succession not starting it, 3rd time leave in that position then it should hopefully give some code on the trip display to start us with.

One of the ABS speed sensors is not working. If the ABS can't read all 4 wheels it can't deliver traction control - ABS switches it off till you fix your problem. Eliminate the sensor[s] before going further, cheap to do. Most diagnostic tools will tell you which one is off.

From 30 March 2020, MOT due dates for cars, motorcycles and light vans will be extended by 6 months. This is being done to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Excellent information that mate, I was a bit concerned as MOT on one of mine is due early April and my gut feeling is we'll be closed down longer than this initial 3 weeks. It's only my thoughts, nothing behind it.
