Default 2003 SSEI traction control question

My traction control comes on every time I start my car. Is this normal and is there a setting I can change to make it only come on when I want it on not all the time?
Thanks,
Dave

The only way to turn it off all the time is to pull the plug on a WSS

Damn....you beat me to the punch. I think there'* a fuse that will do the trick also....during my relay and fuse hunt the other day while trying to figure out a headlight issue, I think I remember running across one.
