Question about 2006 Ford Five Hundred
The traction control light is on all the time in the dash. Is the a transmission problem?
The traction light came on in my Ford 500 SEL along with the ABS light. If this happened, the problem was low battery power and a bad alternator. A fully charged battery fixed it for me after driving a couple of miles.

This is a computerized traction control system that monitors the wheel spin and makes split second adjustments... if the light is on, Ford recommends servicing the system. I'd check with a local non-dealer mechanic that may be able to help you out cheaper than a dealer first.

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You
must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool
and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for
