Is the traction control warning the light the little orange one in between the tach and engine temp gauges in your pic? If so, mine automatically turns off when I put it in sport plus.
Yes it does put DSC into a more aggressive driving mode. Once you have done this, reach down and hold the DSC off button down for a few seconds and you will see this now completely shuts DSC off. This will be indicated by a statement "DSC Inactive " below the speedometer.
