No actuator on the diesels, only the V6.

Have you checked the plenum drains? It's the diesels that are most likely to get the engine ECU (Engine Control Unit) flooded with bad consequences. If not check all the power feeds to the engine ECU, as the traction light would come on if the traction ECU (part of the ABS (Antilock Braking System)) doesn't get the right messages from the engine ECU.

Thats not good news. Get the plenum drained quickly and you might be lucky. But do it now. Right now.
