Your traction control is permanently off...because your car doesn't have it. Just adding a button in there will do you no good.

As far as what the plug is...who knows, but it will do you no good to plug into it.

They are only there because it is cheaper for the manufacture to only have 1 wiring harness build rather than two. Traction control is a software that would need to be on your abs' ecu. Getting a plug for it won't do anything.

If its the T/C then I wouldn't worry about it. I cut mine off everytime I start my car.

If you don't have the traction control button, then you don't have traction control. That is just a "dummy" button so that you dont have just a big whole in your lower dash. Like said before, they use the same wiring harness, but the component isn't there. Don't waste your time/money getting a button, if you didn't miss anything with it until now you wont later either.
