Service stability System

Recommended Posts

After driving for a while i get the "Service Stability System" on my info display. The car seems to be driving fine. I dont notice anything unusual. There are no codes set for steering or suspension. Can anyone put me in the right direction to start troubleshooting. Thanks

For you to see a message on the DIC, there must be a trouble code (DTC). Clear all the DTCs and see what happens.

Stabilitrak can activate the brakes if the car starts to get out of shape during aggressive driving. Inputs are lateral acceleration, yaw rate, steering wheel position and vehicle speed. The electronic brake and traction control module (EBTCM) makes the calculations and applies the appropriate brake(s).

At the base of the steering column, almost directly above the brake pedal, you should find a rectangular 6 pin connector that goes to the steering wheel position sensor. Check that connector and the associated wiring for security and possible damage.

I would try this before throwing parts at the problem; find a vacant parking lot and at low speed, crank the steering wheel full lock in both directions several times while the car is moving. Shut off the engine and clear all the codes. Then see what happens when you drive it normally.

You need to see the same code or codes repeat to be sure you have a consistent and fixeable problem.
