Changed my spark plugs, weird light on dash

Has anyone seen this indicator before? It is right below the Check Engine light.

ya thats your traction control, so if you have it in park and shut off the egnine, then re-start the engine does it come back on?

Mine did the same thing after a plug change. Make sure all the coil packs are snapped in. Disconnect the battery for a few minutes then connect it back and start it. The light should go out.

Stupid mobile. I was trying to say that I guess the lights came on because I had disconnected so many sensors without disconnecting the battery.

Check engine light frequently commands a VSC light as well.
Likewise ABS will typically trigger VSC.
