AdvanceTrac Issues/quirks

I have a 2011 GT base model. When i bought the car I could press the traction button once and immediately traction control would turn off. Then if i press and hold it, advancetrac would turn off. I press the button again and everything comes back on, just like the manual says. No problems

Now when i press the button nothing happens. I have to hold it for a few seconds and just traction control will turn off. If i press the button to turn traction on, nothing happens, even when holding it. Now when i press and hold the button I can't get advancetrac disabled.

Anyone have this happen to you? Maybe its just as simple as disconnecting the battery?

I think disconnecting the battery to reset the computer is worth a try; other than that I think it's probably a dealer diagnostic thing . . . sounds like the physical wiring is OK because it does respond, it just doesn't respond correctly
