Traction control off light

Intermittently the No traction control light, TC with the circle and slash through it, will come on. No rhyme or reason. When the light is on the automatic transmission shifts hard, with a jerk. If I shut the car off for a minute it clears. Any thoughts. One shop so far has no clue. I would like to change the fluid, but it doesn't seem you can do that. Car is an 06 with 140k . Love the car, but this is a nuisance. Any thoughts.

Most likely have a trouble code stored. Is the Check Engine Light on ? Even if not on, you still need to pull the codes to see what's triggering it.

Huh ? Why not. Like any other car, you just drop the pan then replace the filter and fluid. There is no dipstick so you will have to refill it using the correct procedure.
