If the system fails to turn on or activate, the StabiliTrak light along with one of the following messages will be displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC): TRACTION CONTROL OFF, SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL, STABILITRAK OFF, SERVICE STABILITRAK. If these DIC messages appear, make sure the StabiliTrak system has not been turned off using the StabiliTrak on/off button. Then turn the steering wheel clockwise from the nine o'clock position to the three o'clock position. If this clears the message(s), the vehicle does not need servicing. If this does not clear the message(s), then turn the vehicle off, wait 15 seconds, and then turn it back on again to reset the system. If any of these messages still appear on the DIC, the vehicle should be taken in for service.

SOURCE: why does stabilitrak light come on saying service

It's telling you your stabilitrak system is not functioning properly. Sensors in system are failing and setting service light. You need a GM dealer to diagnose system.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 cadillac deville, the service

i just had the problem today, had to have it towed to the gm dealership to clear the security system and to install a new ignition cylinder. when the cadillac has low battery voltage or replacing the battery. the security system will shut everything down. it will lock your ignition and shut the fuel pump down.

ONLY GM dealerships can fix it!

SOURCE: Service stabilitrak and car won't move

A scanner needs to be used to diagnose concerns with these systems, keep in mind that codes are fault indicators that are set to turn the lights on. Note this code number and came back for additional details.

Hope this helps.

Cost estimate to service stabilitrak in 2006 cadillac dts


I can not answer this question. If you walked into my shop with this issue our service writer would explain that we need to diagnose the car first to create an estimate. Depending on your region, you may spend $100.-$150. per hr. for labor. Some facilities may offer a 1hr diagnostic rate. You will need to ask before you ok anything.

I keep getting a message service stabilitrak


StabiliTrak Indicator Light: If the warning light does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem. If it stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your StabiliTrak system and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system is off and will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly.

This light will also flash when the StabiliTrak system is active. If the StabiliTrak system warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service.

The traction control part of StabiliTrak can be turned off by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if both systems (traction control and StabiliTrak) were previously on. To disable both traction control and StabiliTrak, press and hold the button for five seconds.

Traction control and StabiliTrak can be turned on by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if not automatically shut off for any other reason.

When the TCS or StabiliTrak system is turned off, the StabiliTrak light and the appropriate TCS off or StabiliTrak off message will be displayed on the DIC to warn the driver. Your vehicle will still have brake-traction control when traction control is off, but will not be able to use the engine speed management system.

If the StabiliTrak and/or Traction Control are not operating properly, I encourage you to take your vehicle in for inspection. A certified technician will be able to offer a more accurate diagnosis.

Cadillac Escalade EXT 2007 steering was giving noise so we changed the bearing and fixed it but now I can see Stabilitrak warning light is on. I guess there's a steering sensor installed. Is it related to...


There is a steering sensor located at the base of the steering column. If the stabilitrak light is on, there should be a service engine or ABS light on. Have the codes checked and write them down as not to forget. Typically the code is set in the ABS system if the steering sensor is having an issue. However engine and transimission issues can cause the stabilitrak light to come on.

Good luck.

How to service a stabilitrak on a 2006 cadillac dts


If the Stabilitrak Yaw sensor box gets full of water you will get the Service Stabilitrak message.
The 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne have a manufacturing defect of a major water leak problem at the bottom of the driver's side A pillar just below the windshield, accessible after the air inlet grille panel under the wiper blades is removed. The GM service manual bulletin #PI0356A (June 8, 2011) vaguely outlines how to seal off this opening, see attached photo taken from this bulletin. After sealing the obvious unsealed seams, I had to use fire-block insulating foam to close off the large 1 inch remaining upper opening.
The Cadillac DTS has another water leak path in the left front hinge pillar area under the wheelhouse liner noted in the same service bulletin.
In our Lucerne CXS, water actually flooded the Stabilitrak Yaw sensor box which is under the carpet under the driver's seat, resulting in the service Stabilitrak message . It's a major chore to remove the seats, trim and center console just to get the carpets out to dry. The carpets are difficult to dry because they have 1 inch of foam attached which holds a lot of water.
After removing the carpets and sealing the obvious seams, water still poured in when tested with a water hose and it was then I discovered that the water was getting in through the large upper opening which I used fire-block foam to seal. It's best to water test before you put everything back together.
You can quickly check if you have a water leak problem in your vehicle by popping up the rear seat bottom, removing the carpet clip and lifting the carpet on the driver's side rear passenger seat. Ours had about a 1/2 inch of standing water plus a lot more held in the carpet's foam rubber.
I was able to reuse the flooded Stabilitrak Yaw sensor by opening the box, shaking out the water, rinsing the insides with isopropyl alcohol and drying with a hair dryer. The service message went out and the Stabilitrak works in my attempts to slide around on gravel.
I'm surprised that GM didn't have a recall as I consider Stabilitak to be safety equipment.

I have a wrench with a car swerving light up every once in awhile but I have no idea what it means and I have no idea what stabilitrak is


{: ) A car swerving light on the instrument cluster is the StabiTrak indicator, sometimes called the traction control indicator. A wrench beside it tells it requires servicing.

Your vehicle is equipped with StabiliTrak, which combines antilock brake, traction and stability control systems and helps the driver maintain directional control of the vehicle in most driving conditions.
Traction control activates when the controller senses wheel spin. StabiliTrak will selectively apply the brakes and reduce engine torque to help regain traction.
Stability control activates when the controller senses a discrepancy between your intended path and the direction the vehicle is travelling. StabiliTrak selectively applies braking pressure at any one of the vehicle's brakes to help guide the vehicle in the direction which you are steering.
When you first start your vehicle and begin to drive away, the system performs several diagnostic checks to insure there are no problems. You may hear or feel the system working. This is normal and does not mean there is a problem with your vehicle. If driving conditions delay system initialization, the STABILITRAK NOT READY message may be displayed. If this is the case, your vehicle does not need servicing.
When the StabiliTrak system is both on and actively controlling the stability of the vehicle, the StabiliTrak light will blink for the duration of the event.
You may also feel or hear the system working. This is normal.
StabiliTrak will turn off automatically if a problem is detected in the system. The StabiliTrak light will come on and SERVICE STABILITRAK will be displayed on the DIC. For vehicles without a DIC, the StabiliTrak light and the StabiliTrak service light will both come on. If the SERVICE STABILITRAK message (or StabiliTrak service light) does not clear itself after restarting the vehicle, you should see your dealer for service.
