Default Traction Off Light Observations - Any Ideas?

I have owned my Bonnie for 2 month now. Ever since i got it Traction Off Light was on. Sometimes it would be off but previous owner told me that it was like it for a while and their mechanic told them not to pay attention to it Thanks to this forum i checked connections on the wheel hubs and they all seemed ok.

Here is the thing... Few days ago i noticed something interesting...
If i throw a little gas when i start the car Traction OFF light will turn off and stay off for the length of the ride... What the hell is going on? Can someone tell me?

Thank You

Where do you throw the gas? Is this like the salt thing..where you toss it over your shoulder?

Hmm..

Try reseating the connector to the ABS/Traction Control Module. It may have a bit of corrosion in it.

Open up the hood, and look at your brake fluid reservoir. There is a black hose that runs down to this module thingy that is near the radiator. That thingy is your abs pump and traction control module. Unplug and replug the electrical connector. It may not be the problem, but I have found a few instances where dirt in the connectors cause things to go awry from time to time.
