traction control won't turn off

I have a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I have had since August 2014. Over the winter my traction control would kick in and activate whenever I would drive in snow. I used to be able to turn it on and off, but now it remains ON all the time and when I press the button to turn it off ... it does nothing.

I have heard that the sensor may be dirty, but I don't know exactly what the issue is or what I should do.

Comment with some help.

Thanks Guys.

- Sean

While stopped, if you hold down the ESP button for like 5/10 seconds do you get the "ESP OFF" displayed on your dash? I always found when I did just a quick press of the button it didn't really do much, but the press and hold really made a noticeable difference in the snow for me. Weird that you say it did used to work though, so I might be totally unhelpful.
