Drive control message

7ers
Before some you get pissed or angry at me thinking that I didn't search the forums for this problem, I did and couldn't find anything that helped me. I got this problem drive control drive moderately 3 days ago and the sign hasn't gone away since and after restarting car few times in the past few days as some people got the message to go away after they restart the car. I can't turn the dtc control on and today my car was spinning it's wheels quite easily in the rain and the traction control wasn't kicking on. Any idea what this can be guys? And what the fix might be in your opinion if you had a similar issue? I have a 06 with 59k miles. And maintained and driven with lots of care.
Thanks in advance.

what is the exact error message? Depending on what it is, it could be anything from a bad module to a bad wheel speed sensor to something that just needs resetting!
