You can crank the wheel from lock to lock to rest the stability control... and then traction control system light should go out in the next drive cycle.

Normal when you have the battery disconnected.

In simple words just turn your wheel all the way to the right and then all the way left and the light will go off. The light goes off even if you drive the car and take some turns, turn off the engine, turn on the engine.
