Q: traction control light on 2001 Toyota Sequoia

recently when I make a right turn the traction control light will come on and stay lit. I can travel to work (10) miles with no problem, but around noon and when I leave work it will light. If I turn the truck off and turn it back on the traction control button will not work when depressed. What should I do. I don't want to contact toyota as of yet

If the traction control light comes on the traction control computer senses a problem but a scan tool is needed to retrieve codes stored in the computer of your car before any diagnostic tests can be done. Codes stored will indicate where the problem is likely to be.
You have a fault code situation caused by a malfunction in your traction control, any decent independent shop can handle this diagnosis and repair, it does not have to be Toyota.

here are some shops:
Take your vehicle to a repair shop and have them review the front wheel speed sensors that plug into the spindles. You might find that they are not in all of the way and that is whats causing your problem so take both sensors out make sure they are both clean and clean the holes in the spindle too and make sure they are installed completely and flush ! problem fixed!
