    Driving on the Interstate yesterday, with it being around 60 F and bone dry (in the Phoenix, Arizona area), suddenly the traction control light came on and I had to manually switch it off. Any idea what might have triggered that? I assume it's safe to activate/deactivate this even at highway...

    I have searched and not found my answer so far. I have a 2000 528i and the DSC light will not illuminate when the button is pressed.
