What do you mean when you say it stays on? Do you mean that when you deactivate it and then you turn off your car it stays deactivated?

Because when you turn off your car and then turn it back on it should your TC should turn itself back on. At least thats the way it is on the 01-04 mustangs...

Maybe your TC lightbulb is wired wrong?

Good luck bro

my guess is that its an electrical problem either with the switch or with the traction control functionality, find a good mechanic would be the best bet... good luck

i checkd the car and i found that the abs's sensor is a little bent maybe that is the reason why the TC doesnt work, chek yours maybe is that.

Yep, I was going to suggest looking at your ABS sensors, since that's what it uses. The traction control will not activate if the ABS isn't working properly. I have a bad sensor on my car right now on the right front, so my traction control will never come on.
