IS200 Diff Query

Hey all
I have a 2000 Lexus IS200 Sport
I have noticed that the traction control button is not working
Snow button switches on and off
It feels like diff has traction turned off constantly
I noticed while replacing dash clock bulb that the bulb for TRC was removed
I heard it is possible to wire from TRC switch down at ashtray can be wired in a way that traction is constantly off
So I am thinking this is why bulb was removed because it would be on the whole time

Is there anyway I can check this out
Or has anybody ever came across this
All help appreciated

Martin

have you abs? If an abs sensor is removed or broke you'll have no traction control but seriously good braking power
