Smile Question Regarding Traction Control

My car has traction control but I dont see the button for it. I know the car is supposed to have it near the shifter but I dont see it.
Is it located somewhere else? Also could the previous owner/s replace that shifter faceplate? Only button thats on the shifter is the ECT button.

Would replacing it just do the trick? I think it came with extra stuff in the trunk when I bought the car. I believe I saw it but it had the heated seat buttons.

if you have traction control on an sc its located to the left and below the steering wheel. when i saw below i mean waaaay below. its lower down than the trunk/gas buttons are but on the same side.

Depends on what year his SC is. My 93 has it on the shifter bezel to the right of the shifter. I think it went under the dash on the 98+ when the went to the gated shifters but Iím not sure.
