Hello and welcome. This indicates a fault within you traction control system. It is not operating at present. It is possible it was just switched off by accident, so you can try to turn it back on by pressing the button. If this does not work, then you will need to have the fault codes read from the car to determine the exact failure, as there are a number of sensors that can cause this system to go offline. Please drive carefully as you do not have traction control at present.

Which button are you referring to? I can't touch the buttonon the dash.

Expert:  Steve replied 6 years ago.

There should be a button labelled DTC, DSC or ASC near the center console. This is the button I am referring to.
