Not that I am aware. I drive mostly in Normal mode and the yellow "Traction Control Off" Warning light is always off on the dash. I did go out and check it and came away confused. When I depressed the traction control button on the console a message briefly came up and said that Traction Control has been activated, yet at the same time the yellow "Traction Control Off" light was illuminated. I am looking at the manual now and may have to check it out with the dealer.
