Default Replaced tires , TRAC off

Had the tires replaced , on Tuesday , than noticed a note that TRAC OFF in the dash display , was there only for a short while
check the ECS (?) setting and snow setting was off, and could not toggle it on

there no light about tire pressure

could there be problem with the TMPS tire sensors ?

Are the new tires the exact same size as the old tires? In today's world when our vehicles are essentially rolling computers, some of them will light up the dashboard with various warnings if the replacement tires are a different size than the previous set. I would also check all tire pressures with a known-to-be accurate digital tire gauge. I never trust the on-board readings. My 2013 Subaru Outback 3.6R can have a tire more than 5 psi too low and the TPMS never even blinks an eye.

Sounds like the trac off button got stuck or pushed accidentally. Any liquids spilled in the area recently?
Trac off button is behind cup holders, in front of the armrest. Press it once and traction control is disabled until you hit 25MPH. Hold it while stopped and it will be off until the next vehicle restart.
