This refers to the suspension and steering, you probably have a faulty sensor somewhere.
One of the most common sensors to fail in this system is the steering wheel position sensor.
You need to run a diagnostic check to pull the trouble codes to pinpoint the faulty component.

How to pull the codes.....

Use the 3 switches located to the right (LH drive cars) of the Driver Information Center (DIC) to activate and respond to the OBD prompts on the DIC.

ON/OFF = YES
INFO RESET = NO
INFO DOWN or INFO UP = manual toggle


Ignition ON, acknowledge any warning messages;.
Press ON/OFF and INFO UP together for 2 to 3 seconds. Everything in front of you lights up for 4 or 5 seconds, then you will see:

Display shows "ALL?"

Answering YES will display "ALL CODES?"
Answering YES will run automatic test sequence and display codes, if any.

"ALL CLEAR CODES?" will display at the end of the automatic test. If you are satisfied you have the information you need, answer YES to clear/erase all error codes.


Answering "ALL?" with INFO DOWN will toggle systems test manually in order.
Answering "ALL?" with INFO UP will toggle system test manually in reverse order.

Press INFO RESET to reset DIC to "ALL?" to start again.

Ignition OFF to exit.

Write down the codes as they appear on the DIC, you may need to run the check again as it tends to scroll through quickly.

Report back here with the codes.

What does it mean when the service stability system light comes on?


It means that your gonna have to take it to the dealer to get it checked .is this a Cadillac product. Stability is keeping the vehicle level at all times and the light is on because the computer either has to low voltage to operate correctly or to high.it needs scanned to find out the real cause of why it came on.

2001 cadillac deville service system stability


Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Service stablization system


this is a warning that there is a problem with the electronic traction control system, a part or circuit has failed, u will need to have the dealer test the system for a trouble code that will be stored in the control modules memory that will indicate were to look for the defective part, it will most likely be a wheel speed sensor, until the system light is out it is disabled.
