Hello, my name is***** light is for traction control so no reason that should be on. Did vehicle stall when coming to stops? Did it restart right away ever time? Thanks.

TC has always been on and has to be turned off by pushing the button... the car started but I had to use the gas pedal for a little to get the engine going again after start it wanted to stall again with out giving it gas. Noticed engine studder at highway speeds before coming to a stop in traffic when the stall happened.

I think problem may be unrelated. I'd start by cleaning out throttle body with cleaner and a rag from parts store. Then disconnect battery for 10 minutes to reset traction system. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
