{: ) 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.

My ABS light stays on i got a code PO562 car stalls when i turn lights on i have a 1999 hyundai accent. anybody have any ideas?


ABS means your brakes may not stop your car properly at high speeds and make the car wiggle and swerve.
I don't know what the code means but if I was you I have the brakes checked.

What does it mean when stabilitrak and abs light comes on. Once this happen a few minutes later when I brake it makes a grinding noise.


Same as with ALL vehicle problems---
when you have a check engine light on

You stop using it
Check for OBD Codes
Diagnose your codes
Component test-- to find a problem
Make the repair

With or without codes-- you can Google
ABS Braking Systems,Trac Control & many other
abs add-ons-- to learn about them

What about reading your owners manual !!

Fail to see how using a vehicle with
brakes grinding, would be safe

Brakes have to come apart once a year
when you have no problems

What do these icons mean 2996 gmc envoy


Do you mean 2006 GMC Envoy?
Top left- car with squiggly tire tracks and a wrench- that means something is wrong with your Stabilitrak (traction control) system. Top right- triangle around the car with squiggly tire tracks- this light comes on when the light on the top left comes on. It also means something is wrong with the Stabilitrak system. Bottom left- Antilock Brake System warning light- This means there is a fault in the antilock brake system. Considering that the stabilitrak control is part of the antilock brake system, it looks like there may be a common problem affecting both systems. You need to use a scan tool to access the chassis control system and read the diagnostic codes. There are definitely Diagnostic Trouble Codes stored when these lights are on. The code does not tell you what part to replace, but rather gives you a direction to go in diagnosing the cause of the problem.

My stabilitrak light continues to come on. What does this mean? Am I in danger driving with this light on? What does this mean? It tells me that it needs service. 2008 Chevy Trail Blazer.


If your stabilitrak light continues to come on, that means the problem with your stability system really need to be checked out. It is not a dangerous issue, you can still drive safely without the aid of stabilitrak. However, since it is designed on your car, you should enjoy the advantages of having a good stabilitrak system because it enhances driving convenience and control, added safety as well. So better have it scanned and fixed, or the light will just annoy you every time. Okay, there? goodluck. : )

Triangle with car and skid marks behind car and a triangle with wrench both dash board warning lights


{: ) These triangles you saw is for the Stabilitrak (traction control) indicators. Normally these lights should be off after the engine has started, unless you disable it by pressing the stabilitrak button. Sometimes it lights up automatically when driving under certain road conditions, and will turn off later when normal conditions resume. A wrench beside the triangle indicates a fault is detected on thge traction system and it requires servicing.
What you can try, stop the vehicle, turn ignition off for a few seconds to reset the system, and then restart the vehicle. If the lights wont go off, then tghe vehicle really needed to be checked right away.

2006 Chevy Trailblazer LS, dashboard lights, need a key of warning lights, one is a wrench with a car next to it and a squiggly line underneath, the other one looks like a car skidding in a triangle.


Change Engine Oil Light = wrench with a car next to it
StabiliTrak® Service Light =
car skidding in a triangle.
This light will come on if a problem is detected in the StabiliTrak® system
