 Description of the problemDate & mileage approximate. I was driving 35mph and sped up to merge 1 lane to my right so i wouldn't miss my turn. I sped up, maybe to 40 and the traction control light went on and there was no acceleration at that point. I am glad i didn't get rear ended but did get flipped off for cutting someone off and slowing down. I made my turn and hit the traction control button but it stayed lit. I have an automatic with the manual option, i tried driving manually,the light didn't go off. I then pulled over tried the traction button again, it stayed lit. The weather condition was warm and nice out. I turned the car off for a few minutes, started it, light was off and it drove fine. If this happened and the driver behind me hadn't paid attention i would have been hit! I don't want to think about having to cross a street where the oncoming car had right of way and my car didn't accelerate. On another note i have had my car unlock itself 3 times, when i know it was locked with the fob. The fob is not damaged in any way. Twice in same location weeks apart. It was locked, beeped the lights flashed. My keys were set down untouched after that, not in my pocket moving around but on the counter. First time i thought i must have forgotten; my car got ransacked. Second time i knew i locked it, i told myself maybe the cat stepped perfectly on the key fob, on just the unlock button that night. My car got ransacked again but to their surprise nothing was in the car as everything was stolen the first #@#& time! The third time i had a witness watch me lock the car with the fob and i even checked all the handles-locked. We left the restaurant, again unlocked. I cant leave anything in my car because i fear it may happen again.. I wonder if someone's key fob is on the same frequency and strangers are unlocking it? Im going to the dealership in a few days. Im afraid to drive and park my car.
