General Motors StabiliTrak Problems Far From Stabilized

October 22, 2012
By: LemonLaw

While General Motors has been making phenomenal strides with many of their vehicles, we consistently see one problem plaguing the GM line, affecting a number of models such as the Chevrolet Silverado, Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Acadia, GMC Sierra, GMC Savannah, GMC Canyon, Buck Enclave, Cadillac Escalade, and Cadillac SRX. The StabiliTrack problem stems from the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system.

We know several instances of distressed drivers who are having their TRAC, STAB, ABS light and engine lights either going on one at a time or simultaneously. If these lights appear, it generally means these important safety features are being disabled.

This issue can happen at any time with any of the GM vehicles. We are currently working on a claim involving a 2012 GMC Canyon where the StabiliTrak light has come on five times within the first 5,000 mile period. At first, the dealer said they could not duplicate the StabiliTrak problems, but after much persistence, they agreed the steering angle sensor was defective and it has been replaced. Unfortunately, the vehicle is still having problems.

Throughout the years, we have successfully resolved numerous claims involving the StabiliTrak system where clients have received repurchases, new vehicles or significant monetary compensation. If your StabiliTrak light comes on, you must get your vehicle back to a General Motors authorized dealer as soon as possible and even if they claim they cannot duplicate the problem, you want to make sure you receive a repair invoice confirming the appointment.

See the light? You need to fight for your rights. If your StabiliTrak problems result in repetitive trips to the shop, it is very important that you speak to a Lemon Law Attorney who can steer you toward recovery.  You may be entitled to significant compensation under State Lemon Laws and/or Federal Warranty Statutes.

    I own 2007 Pontiac I been having same problem for couple weeks. I bought it used only had car a year with 75000 miles.

      I had an issue where the service Stablitrak, and service traction control messages kept coming up along with a reduced engine power message. This was on a 2011 Silverado with 46000+ miles on it. So far they have replaced the throttle position sensor under the powertrain warranty. Hopefully this remedies my problem.

        I have a 2011 Silverado and this is plaguing me as well. However i just got the truck back from the shop from it getting a New camshaft installed as mine original had a chip in one of the lobes and a crack!!! Two weeks after that my battery died. Not covered under warrenty i had to buy a new one. Then litterally 2 weeks later… Stability control failure causing instant lose of power on the freeway. Which was not a fun moment as i almost got nailed 3 times getting to the side of the road. Mind you this is a 1 year old truck!

          I owned a 2011 Silverado that had this problem starting around 10 months after owning it. After several trips to the dealer a steering wheel sensor was replaced and that took care of the problem. I now own a 2013 Silverado that I’ve had for less than a month and am having the same problem. It’s unfortunate to say the least. Even though I like the truck it’s disappointing this issue is happening again. After researching online I see several complaints with several possible causes all requiring multiple trips to the dealer to find out. I purchased a 90k mile warranty with this truck so I know it will be fixed but the inconvenience of having to deal with it convinces me to never purchase another Chevy.

              We owned a 2011 gmc Terrain with same issues. Was at dealer 3 times in a month. We got talked on to trading it in for a used Chevy equuinox that was certified- well the minute we drove it home engine light came on. Was back at dealer for 2 days then my husband drives it back on and light is on again and vehicle is shaking. At this point I want nothing to do with either car but would rather just have Terrain back since I have already paid so much into it.

                I have a 2008 Equinox with 64000 on it and the light came on. At the dealer now

                  I just purchased a 2013 Chevy Express conversion van, it was done by Explorer Vans, well at 347 miles the service stabilitrak came on display and yellow light came on, when I took it too dealer 10 pages of error codes showed up on computer, It had said 6 previous instances the stabilitrak had errors. so I guess based on what im seeing on reviews im in for a long haul, the yaw readings on the diagnostic were -115 degrees, and the tech told me no code like that showed up in the book and he would have too call GM. I worried actually.

                  • #9 Roxane says:

                    My 2008 Equinox with 40,000 miles had the service traction control/service stabilitrak light come on yesterday. So many different issues it could be – some say a fuse, others an erg part, and many complaints of being “up-sold/scammed” by dealer. Not sure what to do. Curious what happened with Nick’s vehicle. Guess a trip to the dealer is necessary.

                      I had a 2011 GMC Sierra that experienced, and was back at the dealership, 6 times unfortuately over a year after i bought it. The dealership said that they even had a GMC rep in to check the vehicle, but could not duplicate the problem. The last time the servicerep said sort of “that’s it”, I was foolish enough to waste the depreciation on this and another truck to get a new vehicle. TWO DAYS AFTER DRIVING THE NEW VEHICLE THE SAME PROBLEM AT THE SAME PLACE DRIVING HOME! Needless to say, I called the service and sales managers to see what they can do for me. Last time they did zero – soooo for about $10,000 in depreciated trade-in value, I have the same problem – just a BRAND NEW vehicle!

                          I own a 2009 and 2001 silverado crew cab. The stabilitrak and traction control lights come on and service lights for both come on at random. The usually common before I reach 20 mph, and is random. Some days it won’t some days it will. I have stopped turned the ignition off for a few minutes, and restarted and it goes away. Days later its back. I’ve heard the sensors may be dirty or loose. Still not resolved.

                            My new car which I only had for 3-days was at the dealership for 2-weeks. I had the same problem with a previous vehicle. With GMC corporate involvement, the official position is that the “SERVICE STABILITRAK” warning is within “normal operational” parameters since GMC cannot duplicate the occurrence. I suggest that all involved make constant comments on GMC’s Sierra Facebook, as I have been, to draw attention to the issue pending resolution in a more responsible way. The GMC “executive center” rep said that I should merely log the occurrences. I intend to take the vehicle in for warranty service every time that the warning flashes. Does it take someone to be killed in a mishap where the system is truly non-functional to get attention?

                              I have recently purchased a used 2005 Chevy Suburban with Autoride. While driving on the expressway at a speed of 66mph, the vehicle decided it was going to stop. The front left brake came on then the right brake came on. This alternated back and forth until I was able to get pulled off onto the shoulder. The tires as the brakes were deploying were screaching. A warning came on saying that I needed my Stability Serviced. This just cannot continue to happen. How is this system considered a safety feature when it could have gotten me killed? Anybody else have this happen and if so, what did you andnGM do to fix it?

                                We just purchased an 09 Cadillac SRX 2 1/2 months ago. About a week ago it started shaking and acted like it was stalling at about 40-50 mph. I called the dealer and just so convenient for the factory warranty to have just ran out. We took it to our trusted mechanic and had the fuel filter changed and he ran a check and it said problems with stabilitrak. Great!!!!! Im scared to put our young children in the car.

                                  I bought a 2013 Silverado Z71 2 weeks ago. This light came on at 500 miles and went out. I didn’t think anything of it then , now i have 1000 miles in truck, the dash lit up with stability service and service traction control displays on screen. There are also two lights that stay on(wavy skid mark and another). Gm quality has gone down hill in my eyes. This is the third time at dealer as I just left service bay on Friday Sep 13 2013. Truck had 172 miles on it when i bought it and door lock switch did not work.I had to wait until i got back from a 600 mile trip to take it in.Dealer tech fumbled around dropped clip in door panel, had to remove door panel and once returned tech didn’t notice that he failed to actually get panel back on?? Walked service rep out to vent about their poor service and let them finish yhe work they started. Sounds like my 330 apt today will be just as enjoyable as Friday’s visit.

                                    Dealership said they had a bulletin out about loose wires, but to address tgey woukd have to basically pull dash..ssid they found nothing wrong but asked if I drive with both feet??? Said it could be loose wire but tgere check was fine, said they could put a brake positiining sensor on it if I wanted, but if it comes on again they would have to tear into dash. Not what I want to hear on a week and a half old truck.

                                              At dealer now , they say now its the brake positioning sensor that’s bad. While I’m talking to service rep desk clerk another buyer has same issue. After 45 min visit, now told I need to come back as they had to order parts. Left work early 5 Times now over a brand new 2013 Z71. Next will be 6 visits .2280 miles now.

                                                I have a 2008 Buick Lucerne and the Stabilitrak light has come on 8 times so far. It comes on when the outside temperature is 95+ degrees. I can be driving down a level road with the cruise control on and going 70mph and for some reason the stabilitrak light comes on and then the cruise control goes off. I have been to the dealer 3 times for this problem. They repositioned some of the wires in the steering wheel sensor but that did not fix the problem. I can reset the cruise control and the problem might occur 1 hour later.

                                                    heading to dealership now for my 6th visit with a truck with 2594 miles.I called them yesterday as i had never recieved a follow up from last Wed. That part was in.I’m now at the dealership for my 6 visit with two separate issues and I don’t have much confidence that replacing the brake positioning sensor will fix the Stabilitrak issue.I called the Illinois state’s attorney yesterday who recommended that I call GM directly to see if they can resolve the issue. If not call yhem back ??I have a case number and all the sudden initial dealership called to see how their service was. They are placing a new bps and well see what happens. On 9/30 cruise would not work as stabilitrak came on 9 times in a 35 mile span to work.

                                                        My 2009 Chevy Avalanche began having the same Stabilitrak issues 3 weeks ago. It has happened ~ 20 times. Local GM dealership in Regina couldn’t find anything wrong or any codes as I had to take off battery cable to be able to get vehicle there. GM dealership in Red Deer found a code despite battery cable removed which should have made the code disappear. They cleaned throttle body which allowed me to make 700 miles before happening again. This morning the vehicle had the same issue 5 times in 150 miles. Mentioned to person at GM 1-800 service hotline that this issue has been going on for what appears to be 8 years according to the internet and GM hasn’t found the fix yet!!?? She responded that anyone can place stuff on the internet that may not be true….really!! I am here to tell you it freakin is. Will take Avalanche back again to GM dealership in Regina again tomorrow to see if they can either find it and/or maybe fix it. Unit has less than 80,000 kms and has been good until now. Still way less issues than my 2007 Cadillac STS. Have bought GM’s all my life but this is soon to change!!

                                                          it is baffling that GM still hasnt found a fix for this problem after all these years.

That was about 2000 mles or more ago,, Now I’m waiting t hear back from GM on my “pain and suffering” compensation.

They will low ball you and have you sign a release which would literally obliterate your rights. Contact a lawyer before doing anything. Visit to find a lawyer in your state who could help.

Low nad behold, over the warranty and just purchased it less than a year ago. My Stabilitrak light comes on, along with the malfunction light and I get power rudction also. I’m due to take it in to the dealer today. Funny thing is, my husband bought a 2011 Silverado 1500 and in 2 months his did exactly the same thing (a year ago). His was covered under warranty and the dealership stated it was a CO2 sensor. The engine power reduction is so dangerous when your driving down the interstate. Liability for GMAC waiting to happen. Sounds like several different things can cause this same reaction out of the vehicle.

                                                                          • #37 Rachel says:

There wasn’t any affect on performance and the vehicle handled well. The dealerships service dept. told me it was common and it would simply reset itself, they gave me a photocopy of a page from the owners manual and said don’t worry. December 2013, after six years of ownership and less than 42000 miles as I was merging into moving traffic, the Torrent sounded three dings, “traction control off”, only this time “ENGINE POWER REDUCED”, I could NOT accelerate, I thought my family and I were going to be killed! The vehicle is going back to the dealership. I have read many comments from people who have spent large amounts of money to resolve this problem to no avail. Frustrated!

                                                                              • #39 Bruce says:

Many times randomly on the highway and local driving the stabilitrack light comes one, I loose engine power (warning message and beeps) rough idle. Very dangerous when on the highway with kids in the back. I have to pull over, stop the suv, I have about 45 seconds to do this. If I turn it off and back on the suv the light will go away temporarily before coming back on randomly . I also stopped by the shop as my engine light is on. They took codes and replaced the throttle body, over $400 dollars to fix, been 3 days and no sign of this safety hazard issue so far. Very dangerous….

                                                                                • #40 Terri R. says:

I have all the service invoices. This morning I was going about 60mph and seconds to get to the shoulder when the engine powered down. Ridiculous! Can someone get me in touch with an attorney? I am so done with this car!

I bought it 1.5 years ago and in April 2013 my ABS Light and a Traction Control service message came up on the display. It was litterally 2 months outside of the 3 year / 36K mile bumper to bumper warranty. YAW Sensor and EBCM module had to be replaced. After complaining to GMC Headquarters in Detroit, MI they worked with the dealership to where I was only charged $100.00 versus the full $700.00 for parts and repair costs. Guess what, the ABS Light and Traction Control service message came on again last week. 8 months / 4,000 miles later. Truck is at the GMC Dealership now and they confirmed it’s the YAW sensor again. I like the look of the truck but come on… Let me know if I have any recourse, outside of just trading it in for a Tacoma.

No more stabilitrak warning messages, No more engine reducing power at highway speed messages, No more pulling over at high speeds to shut the suv off and restart to temporarily reset the issue. Very dangerous as I stated. Its been 18 days now. Looks like one can purchase the part for $200. Looks simple enough to replace yourself. I had GMC replace it for $400+.

I drive this truck every day for work but went on vacation over the holiday and when I got back the problem started. The temps have been very low here in VA and I started it up in the driveway to let it warm up while I was in the house for the first time since I returned from vacation to find the service Stabilitrak/traction control/reduced message on. The check engine light was also on and the engine was running rough. I shut the engine off and pulled the manual out which told me to wait 15 seconds and restart the vehicle, which I did. Everything seemed fine for a day or so. The problem occured again and is very random. It happened to me 8 times in a span of 15 miles this morning on my way to work. I thought I would do some searching first before I take it to a dealership.
                                                                                        Form the sensus above, it seems that the throttle body is the most common fix for this problem??
                                                                                        I am in the truck now as I am typing this and have shut the traction control off and have been idling with no issues for an hour now but I am sure it will happen again.
                                                                                        If you all could tell me what the common fix has been on this issue would greatly be appreciated before I spend a boat load of money with no fix. Thank you in advance.

I cannot let the truck idle for more than a few minutes before the stabilitrak error/engine power reduced. It also happen while driving, usually during coasting situations while going down hills. Why the loss of power??? THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!!! especially in DC traffic.

                                                                                          • #45 Jarod B says:

Had around 14000 miles on the truck when the service stab system light came on. The message came on that morning andwent off that evening. Didn’t think much of it and continued to drive the truck. At around 14500 miles the light came on, on the way to work, but this time it had a reduced power message along with it. This put my truck in what they call limp mode which is very violent when this happens. I had to disconnect the battery cables to clear the fault so I could get it to the dealership. Take in mind this is a new vehicle and I am now having to take off work to take it to the dealership. Got it to the dealership and they could not find anything wrong with it? They sent me home in a truck that was obviously going to break down? I was not happy but I had to get to work. That same evening the message came back along with the reduced engine power message. The truck again went into limp mode and started violently shaking and running rough. Took it to the dealership and they said it was a bare wire that had faulted? Take in mind this is now my second time to the dealership and I am taking more time off work for a new vehicle? The truck now has 17000 miles on and the service stab system light is back on. The light came on, on the way to work and went off on the way home. The truck is currently at the dealership and I am waiting on what they are going to blame it on now? This is the third time it has been to the dealership and the third time i have had to take time off work for a new truck? The dealership acts as if though they have never heard of this problem and it is normal that a brand new truck should be in the shop?

I took it to the dealership, they couldn’t repeat the problem at first so they said they were going to keep the vehicle over the weekend to reproduce the problem. Even though it was not under warranty, they still gave me a car to drive. They really took care of me. They replaces something having to do with the Throttle Body. It was all good until last night when the samething happened again. I really think this is a problem that GM needs to focus on. The dealership told me to keep my paperwork on the repair just incase of a recall and I can get reimburst. I almost went to another make of vehicle for this problem but I a very loyal to GM but if this is not resolved soon I might not be anymore.

They did disconnect my Remote Starter and told me where it was connnected was wrong. Hopefully, I never see the ABS Light and Traction Control message ever again. If I do, I will post it on this message board.

I have asked the dealer about service bulletins and they said none exist and Chevy has never heard of this problem. The dealer I bought the truck from just shrugs me off so I have an appointment this Friday at another dealer in town. I have over 15 videos of this happening and numerous picturs where they can see the outside temp, miles on the truck and that the truck is running and moving. The truck just tripped 10,000 miles this morning and this has been going on for over 4 months and about 6000 miles. I love the truck but not very happy with Chevys service. Not what you would expect when you purchase a $50,000 truck or truck of any price for that matter. If the other dealer gets the problem resolved I will let everyone know what they found.

Ive checked, all lights are functioning. Then today im at lunch sitting in park listening to the radio and all of a sudden my truck starts vibrating and shaking like im driving a tractor or something. Turn off the truck and turn it back on it stop until i get to another parking spot at my office and it starts again. I has been off for about 3 hours now, going to leave work soon to see if it will start. This really pisses me off. I think i am done with GM! And i just went out of warranty how damn wonderful!

Temp was -21C so I figured it was just a cold weather thing. Stopped for 30 min for coffee, and started it up, no lights, no problem. Drove home from work, no problems -15C. Same thing happened today -21C again. Have not noticed any engine reduction as I am only doing city driving.

                                                                                                                        Just this past Friday after having this issue happen multiple times I limped the truck to an advanced auto to find out what the check engine light codes would read back. It came back as a TPS (throttle body Positioning sensor issue code: P2135 and read 3 times). To make a long story a little shorter, I am some what a little mechanically inclined and know how a throttle body works. Knowing that a throttle body has a butterfly valve in it that opens wider and wider the more you press the gas, I decided to rev the engine up quit a few times to work the butterfly open and closes thinking maybe it was sticking which would trigger the TPS to trip. Don’t worry about doing engine damage because these cars/trucks have rev limiters in them that will not allow the engine to go beyond the “red line”. I did not just hold the gas pedal down but instead just revved the engine up roughly about 10 times. Do not do this until the engine is warmed up and has sufficient oil in the top of the engine as it could cause engine damage!!
                                                                                                                        I have not had an issue since with my truck. Although it has only been a few days that I have been driving it and it was in the 30’s today, it seems to be fixed.
                                                                                                                        I am assuming that the cold weather causes the butterfly to get stuck and trips the TPS which puts the truck/car into “limp” mode to protect the engine. Maybe it’s just because moisture gets into the mounting points on both sides of the butterfly and causes it to stick!?
                                                                                                                        Please let me know if this works for you as I really would like to keep track of this not only to save people money but to keep them safe.

                                                                                                                          One these newer vehicles, the gas pedal is linked to the throttle body by wire, not by a cable like older vehicles. (Boy I miss the simple old cars) When you press the gas pedal and the butterfly in the throttle body is not opening to the position it is programmed to open to, it trips the TPS. This is designed to happen to protect your engine from whatever?. Even if it sticks just a little, and then goes to the position it’s supposed to, it causes a problem. All the posts that I have read about this problem has been posted during winter months. Which leads me to beleive that the butterfly is freezing and causes it to stick. While reading these posts I was trying to come up with a common denominator and that was one of the things I found. The other thing was that it was random and once reset by shutting off the car for a couple minutes it cleared up. So I figured that it must not be a permanent problem and the TPS would work again fine after the reset.
                                                                                                                          I’m not saying that this is the fix for everyone’s issue, I’m just saying that this has seemed to have worked for me.
                                                                                                                          Would not surprise me if the dealerships know this but don’t want to suggest it as they would rather have everyone with this issue come into their service center and throw money and parts/labor at it and never have a solid solution. Toyota may seem to have a lot of recalls but at least they back their product up and take car of their customers. I love my country but it Seems you can’t always say this about American manufacturers.

This is at a canadian dealership but I hope it helps all.

The PVC system does not like cold weather (0F or -18C). The PVC system freezes and the rear oil seal will blow. I blew the engine on my two year old 2011 Terrain and 5 days the rear oil seal. We have pictures of the papers he showed us documenting the problem. Thank goodness it is under warranty but have been told when the warranty is up, we will have to pay if the problem arises again, which they can NOT guarantee it won’t. We were told to get rid of the car, before the warranty is up and that the PVC system is a terrible design. There are NO recalls as of yet.

But I have also noticed that after driving awhile I get steam rolling out from the grille as if overheating. Anyone experience this? And is this also tied to the throttle body sensor issue?

This would be the second time for me. 90000 miles w/2 more years to pay off. I am going to take this to a independent mechanic to get a second opinion.

When on any wet or snow covered surface truck is just digging in and moving sideways. dealersip told me that ” front end was just dry and not lubed properly’ and that they could not duplica the issue.

We have 120k on the vehicle so no warranty. Anyway we went to an independent mechanic and they thought we should change the spark plugs and we had a coil out. They replaced all of this today. Light still coming on and the car is running like junk. I just paid it off and was hoping to drive it a while! From what I’m reading does everyone think that the trottle sensor is a good bet? The mechanic recommended we get rid of the car!

I took my 2010 GMC Acadia to a dealer and they replaced a High pressure fuel pump and some other gizmos for 1350.00. Dealer gave me a new Acadia to use for the week. Car does run fine but power stearing sounds funny.

I’m in Quebec and over the phone all dealers are expecting the $75 diagnostic price and a possible part replace all on my tab. I don’t wanna bring my car anywhere near them unless I’m assured it won’t cost me anything. It’s so dumb that I’m expected to pay for something that is a known issue. One dealer even said “yea, it’s probably the throttle body. That’ll be $400 please.” I have a 2009 Pontiac Torrent by the way, still under the powertrain warranty until June.

I do not drive it a lot however yesterday I drove my SRX instead of my other car and when I got to the stop light I felt a vibration like the entire truck was shaking and the StabiliTrak light came on so I turned around and headed back home. This has never happen before.

                                                                                                                                                      I immediately contacted by service manager at the car dealer where I purchased and explained what had just happened. He asked me did my engine light come on as well but I told him I was not sure because I was a little nervous of this happending.

                                                                                                                                                      I have an appointment tomorrow morning at 7:30 to bring it in but I am afraid to drive it.

                                                                                                                                                      Does anyone know whether or not there have been any recalls from GM regarding this StabiliTrak error? I have search the website and there are all kinds of complaints regarding this but I do not see any recalls from GM regarding the StabiliTrak.

                                                                                                                                                      Help! I am in no way paying for whatever is going on.

There are no other codes associated with the ABS or Stabilitrak system yet they are on constantly. GM needs to fix this, who knows what’s not really working on the truck???

I’ve have to replace head gaskets due to oil and coolant mixing and blowing a head gasket. I’ve replaced the ERG its had tune ups and now 2 days after getting it back from the dealership this last time I had the service traction control/ stabilitrack light come on with reduced power and brakes.

During our heavy snowseason when driving through heavy snow my Stabilitrak lights were on. Also, yesterday i drove 400 miles and was driving through road with alot of hills. Again, my stabilitrak light came on?? What is going on?? GM needs to take care of this.

Being a recent widow and living in a very rural area I wanted a new dependable car. The car was in two dealerships for three weeks. Mechanics said they could find nothing wrong. Now have the car back and yesterday, light came on again at less than 500 miles, in 70 degree weather. Now, I don’t have a dependable car. Wish I had my old one back. Too bad the dealerships cant just acknowledge the problem and tell you about it instead of dancing around the problem. Shame on them.

It feels like the entire car goes without power, including the power steering, for a few seconds then resumes. Needless to say, the car has been back at the dealership for 3 days and they can’t get it to act up on them. This was happening several times in a 15 mile trip to and from work.
                                                                                                                                                                      I am concerned with this being an ongoing problem. Fortunately, the car is under warranty, but after reading all the above comments, it sounds like GM needs to make some changes. I have had a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix, which is 12-13 years old now and had issues.
                                                                                                                                                                      If the dealership can’t fix the issue, what is my next step? I don’t have the money to get another vehicle, but I need something dependable.

I don’t understand. It has 156,000 miles on it I just made my first payment, it has no warranty and we just cleaned the throttle body, new plugs, new wires, new air filter It will sometime blow out a huge cloud of white smoke and the shop wants to charge me to find out what is wrong with it. What can I do. It’s not fair I need a dependable vehicle I have 4 kids that I need to get around. How much money needs to be put out before it can be considered a lemon law?? Please help

It has about 80,000 miles. The first couple of days everything ran smooth. After about a week we started noticing the car would jerk back and forth when driving 10-15 miles per hour and it jerked really bad going up the ramp on the highway. We brought this issue to the owners of the dealership and they asked us to take it to their mechanic so he can work on it. The mechanic said he replaced a spark plug and is ready for pickup. For about 2 days it was all good then our frustration is worse. One of the back doors doesn’t lock, the air condition comes and goes, the headlights aren’t working, and now the Stabiltrak and ABS lights are on. Someone please help. I dont know what to do anymore?

You should contact your state attorney general’s office and look into used car consumer statutes.

Just about got me into a car crash when the engine reduced speed. I limped home and luckily I had a service appointment scheduled for Thurs. I will ask about the TSB#11273A recall and the Throttle Body Sensor and see what they say. This is the first time it has happened. Not cold out as in some of the other posts so not sure what happened. Hopefully GM will kindly help me. I will let you know what they say once I get it in and have them check it.

It wasn’t until after I asked about the TSB#11273A special condition that the customer assistant was like oh yes I can see there is a special condition on there. They advised me that there are perimeters on the special condition 193, 350km or 10/28/19 whichever comes first. Luckily I am still within the parameter, I will let my service advisor know on Thurs. However, the caveat is that they diagnose this as the problem. I will let you all know after Thurs. I kept the chat since it appears there are others have reoccurring issues, I will document my attempts at resolving the issue right from the get go. Thanks to those that have posted previously, it was helpful!

We have had nothing but problems with it – one thing after the next. After less than 60,000 miles our entire family was stranded in Pittsburgh for over a week on a trip home from Buffalo to Charlotte, NC because the transmission gave out on the highway. We lost complete power and we were lucky that our family was not killed on the highway had my husband not reacted so well. The car had to stay in PA for over a month while they supposedly replaced the transmission. 50,000 miles later the transmission completely went out again and our local dealer, Randy Marion GMC said they would not fix it because the work that was done in PA was a “repair” and that I only had one year or 10,000 miles on it! I was outraged and told them for a $50,000 car I should get more than 110,000 miles without having to go through two transmissions not to mention all the other issues I have had! It took me over a month but they agreed to fix it. Now, six months later, I am having yet more problems….ABS light, stabilitrak lights are on and the car is bucking and losing power when idling. I have had it with car!!!! I only have $4000 left to pay on it and it has been NOTHING BUT TROUBLE! I am going to be left with a $50,000 piece of junk in the end! Advice PLEASE!

I am hoping that this fixes my problem permanently and that my posts help the next person, I know your posts helped me.

When I started it up after work…bam! The Stabilization Control, traction control and engine light came on again. Back to GM and waiting for their new diagnosis…visit #2. I have a feeling this is going to be a never ending problem 🙁

They gave me a small break and had me only pay a $100 good will deductible, not sure why I am paying them good will it is their system that is faulty but I was happy to not be paying the $450 it would have cost. People know that GM knows this is a problem there are service bulletins out regarding these problems, those of you that have paid to have the throttle body sensor replaced – call GM and have your money refunded it is on an extended warranty. I plan on calling them each time this problem occurs and I encourage all of you to as well. Thanks to John and Dave my problem is fixed for now. Good luck to all of you.

The dealer tried twice fix the stabillitrack but all we get is lip service and a warning light that still comes on.

My stabilitrack light has been coming on randomly while idling at a light or while driving at traffic speeds 5-10mph. When it occurs the vehicles shifts hard and the light goes off once i pick up speed. Ill take it to dealership Friday to see what bs they try to tell me. Clearly theres an issue with all their vehicles that they have no fix for or doing nothing about it to try and address.

It is very dangerous to drive being that it just stalls out in traffic. so much for a family vehicle. i have took this vehicle to the shop numerous times and spent at least 2000 dollars and still no justice. please pray for me. if anyone knows a true fix for this please let me know. thanks

I have recently had the same issue with stabilitrack/traction control and engine light. The vehicle never felt different when these lights came on. The dealer called today and stated that the motor was getting too much oil and they were replacing the pistons because of it. This is the second issue I have had with it as they already replaced a throttle sensor around 10,000 miles. I am fortunate to still have a warranty and now I know why GM now offers a 7 year extended warranty plan at the time of purchase. I was smart enough to buy the 7 year 100,000 mile powertrain coverage.

I brought my vehicle in over a year ago, when it was still on warranty, because the service stabilitrak, service traction control lights come on intermittently and because the car would sometimes not move when I stepped on the gas and then would jump forward. They said they couldn’t recreate the stabilitrak issue and the jumping forward was due to different drivers, my husband and I driving the car differently.
                                                                                                                                                                                                          Now the car has 48,000 miles, not on warranty, and the lights keep coming on and then my cruise control won’t work. I brought it in and they said it is the brake switch – I have no problem with the brakes. I don’t know if I should let them fix this or not. It is going to cost $128.

It seems that whatever they do to the car only last a 2 or 3 weeks, whan the light comes on again.

I have all the receipts and works orders they have done on my hand. just today the light came on again and engine power in reduced, called the dealer to take it in (AGAIN) and they told me I have to wait!!! because they are full!!!! I just want the damm thing fixed once and for all! Do i qualify for lemon law?

My truck ended up dying and wouldn’t crank back. Tow truck hauled it to closest dealer while I went on to work. Hopefully they will figure out what’s wrong with it and it will never happen again. Just sucks to by a brand new truck and it tear up two days later. Thinking they need to give me another one just like it.

Initially brought into dealer in Feb 2014 stabilitrak and loud front end noise. 90000 miles. Extended warranty. Needed new left wheel bearing. Didn’t drive much due to illness. Stabilitrak came back on of course, we all know the story. Dropped off at GM dealer June 26… We have in total now you need all four tires replaced… Ok fine.. light comes back on… Back to shop… New wheel bearing again… Throttle cleaned, break booster, sensors, steering column, I can keep going. Black box put in the check the codes.. we can’t duplicate but when I drop it off the light is on… Had to drive with them twice because it must be operator error, but told well I would drive a lot faster than you down these hills and push the breaks harder ? Tech comes out and runs diagnostics. States well we cAn’t find anything wrong, change the break pads and rotors and it may fix the problem, if not it may be just an occurance curance with the vehicle. Really. So now it’s August 28, yes June 26 to August 28. They have put over a thousand miles on my truck, now over 100k out of warranty, and the dealership said well there is nothing we can do the highest up said so.. and went on to say you didn’t even buy it at this dealership anyway, we have been nice enough to try by getting the GM tech to come out. Doesn’t make me want to by anything GM again.

I had always heard “get a Cadillac, as they are dependable and hardly anything ever needs repairs.” My dream car, which I hoped would last me through retirement, has been nothing but trouble. I put approx 20K miles on it, at 58K presently. Within the 1st week I had it, the right front light had to be replaced. This was done under warranty. At about 49K, the left light went out, but I was sure I was informed the warranty ran thru 75K, so took it in when it just rolled over 50K. I was informed this was not under warranty and it would cost me over $1,700 to replace it. I about fainted. The dealership kindly negotiated with Cadillac and my responsibility was reduced to just under $600, still a lot for a light replacement. I kept the car in good repair with required maintenance and upkeep at my usually trustworthy mechanic shop I have been utilizing for 40 years; but more recently had it serviced at the dealership in preparation for a take a long trip…that routine service cost me nearly $800. Among the items serviced wad the throttle, which I had never had serviced on any of my cars previously. Within a few weeks of that service the Stabilitrak service light came on. I immediately called the dealership, who informed me I of course needed to come in. But the light went off and didn’t come back on for about another month, but it wouldn’t stay on. Then one evening, I had to go out, and the car wouldn’t start. I called my road service, but when they arrived, I got the car to start, so nothing was done. The car drove fine for about a week, and the Stabilitrak light problem surfaced again, and went off again. The car wouldn’t start once more, but I finally got it started in my driveway, so I let it run to build up the battery, and again, it was running fine. But I took it to my repair shop for the Stabilitrak light checkup. I was told the computers needed to be reflashed to the tune of nearly $300, which I agreed to. The light problem was not resolved however, as it continued to come on inconsistently, then went off. I thought it was fixed, but evidently not. A few days after, I took it to a local wash, and when I tried to start it, it was dead as a doornail. I had it towed to my repair shop instead of the dealership, as my road service didn’t cover the long miles to the dealership (immediately bought better road service). My shop said the computers needed to be checked again. They then told me I needed a new battery and altenator, another nearly $900. I had this done, and when I picked it up the next morning, when I drove it, the Stabilitrak light came back on again. I drove it (it was driving fine) to the dealership, who had to keep the car to diagnose the problem, which would take some time. The dealership couldn’t loan me a car, so I said I would drive it home and come back in the morning. When I drove it off the lot, it started pouring rain. The windshield wipers wouldn’t work! So, I turned around and went back to the dealership, and rented a rental car (2 days, another $98). When the dealership called me to tell me their diagnosis- – needed new computer, $999), I told them to hold off the repair, as I was so frustrated, I would try to trade it in and get another car. I asked how much it would cost to just “put all the parts back together for me to trade it in.” Another $200! They held off until I bought another car, using the VIN number of the Cadillac. I went and got it, brought it to the Nissan dealer (new car Nissan product). They took it in trade, knowing the problems I had experienced. So much for my dream car…I was not unhappy to see it go. I would just like some of the money I spent on it in the 368 short days I owned it, or that IT OWNED ME! I lost a great deal on that car.

Stabilitrak came on 2 months out of warranty, but still in mileage warranty. Problem was #3 lifter. Replaced all lifters (set) for $4400.00. 2000 miles later same error, this time lifter again, replaced entire lifter set for $200.00 customer good will. Now 10 months later still inside the 12 mos, 12,000 mile warranty, changed oil at 103,000 miles with Mobil One as always, there was metal filings on oil plug magnetic tip. Two days later stabilitrak light comes back on. Im assuming it is an internal engine problem again. $115.00 for diagnostic to see if they might cover it. I bought this truck new, have had it to the dealer 20 times for drivetrain and transmission issues. Not my first Chevy, but definitely the one that has given me the most headaches. My prior 2001 Silverado with the 4.8 L motor, 150,000 miles, only regular belts hoses maintenance. No other issues.

Once got both stabilitrak and traction control error message. Repair shop/dealership has replaced three major parts and I am still getting the stabilitrak off/service stabilitrak error messages. It is not a consistent problem. If I drive the vehicle ten times I will get the error 5 out of 10 times…. I have had this vehicle at the repair shop about 8 times in the last two months. Very frustrated!

Bought it used in 2012. Have had numerous problems. I can’t even keep count. Now that our warranty has expired earlier this year we have been having more problems. Motor mounts, fuel injection issues, fuel pump went out, and today 9/23/14 right as my wife was getting to work the engine light comes on and 3 messages flash, stabilitrak, loss of engine power. Car barely makes turn into the parking lot. What do I need to do. This is just ridiculous. Been back and for to the dealer to many times before the warranty expired. At least 6 to 8 times.

Almost 2 months after getting the car my mom was driving it with my 2 youngest and while at a stoplight, when the light turned green she went to accelerate and the car lost power. Then a few months later while driving I could feel the car getting stuck in gear and then when it would finally shift the whole car would jerk. Then a few months later I was in idle at a friend’s house. When I attempted to shift the car in to drive the vehicle lost power and would not start up again. Athe first the dealership took apart the transmission thinking that was the problem. It turned out that some cap that should’ve been there to keep some kind of fluid from leaking wasn’t there. Not noebeoken. Just totally not there. very strange. The cap was replaced and I thought the problem was solved. Nope. The Wednesday, while sitting in idle in the same spot for 20min, I went to shift in to drive, again the car lost power and everything went black. After about 5 tries I was able to restart the car. It’s back at the dealership being looked at and they say they ran all kinds of tests and haven’t come up with anything. Does this qualify for the Lemon.Law in Hawai’i?

Looks like it’s wearing my tire uneven. Took to dealer said cannot duplicate customers request. Also battery leaking acid. Being a service vehicle we need our trucks all the time I will not be returning back to the dealership I’m just gonna have to live at the problem GM is a bunch of crooks. Somebody told me one time if you’re going to buy a truck by a Ford and that’s what I’m gonna do

After a few weeks of buying it started making loud noise when turned on. I had previously took to dealership foe oil change BC it had been over 4000 miles which they refused BC they said the oil life was not low enough. After the noise started it then started loosing power and stalling. I took it in and they said it was almost out of oil and they replaced a gasket. A couple months later it started doing it again and was no longer under warranty, I also got a flat tire that I had to change. After that it also showed the stability track needs serviced, ABS off and all wheel drive off lights. Took it in to Chevy dealer who said it was a sensor. They also told me alot of other little things were wrong and wanted to charge me a ton of money and I refused knowing that some of the things were fine. Took it to a small local repair shop where he changed the wheel bearing and said it was an exhaust leak. Had it fixed for 150.00. Now less then year later loud noise again and battery dead. Bought new battery took to dealer and my manifold was completely spilt in two. And again got flat tire and same three lights are now on. It also has been burning oil like crazy having to add oil about every 3-4 weeks if not more often. I recently received a letter from GM stating that the 2010 models have been burning oil to where it is empty at 2000 miles. Don’t know but sick of it. And thinking the lights have to do with the different size tires when had to use spire tire.

On Oct. 14th the service stabilitrak, check engine light, and engine power reduce light came on. The vehicle shut down and I had to have it towed to a mechanic. The mechanic got this code P228C and told me that it was a computer glitch and it was nothing that he could do. He felt that I should not spend a lot of money trying to fix this car because it is a computer glitch. It was running good at the time so I drove the car and on Oct. 24th the same thing happened again. I called GMC corporate office and they had it towed to one of their dealership for their mechanic to look at. On Oct. 29th they called and told me that my car was ready and that they changed the fuel pump. I picked my car up around 5 pm on yesterday. This morning my car is back at the dealership because the check engine light is back on.

I also noticed that the power steering shuts off for couple of second while driving. After driving for awhile, when I turned off the ignition, I can’t even take the key out because the power of the car is off. I have to wait about 3-4 min to turn the power on. I took it to the Chevy dealer and couldn’t figure it out what’s wrong with it. They said they have to spend more time and I have to leave the car for couple of days.

The tow haul hasn’t worked once since purchasing it. It has been to the dealer four times and am told it works as intended by GM for that truck that year. They furnished me printed test results indicating that it works. But it does nothing when driving down the road with my small RV hooked behind. The service manager and his ace mechanic both drove it and said it doesn’t operate as he expected. But even after contacting GM Tech people they simply refer me back to the dealer who keeps saying it works just fine. His last explanation was that the “gears and tires are too tall” They are both OEM. I have tried about every resource I can think of to get this dealer to correct this. I am told that this can be programed to work. But the dealer won’t do it. I think he is afraid of GM.

But the truck continues to operate OK. Shut off the truck and the problem is gone but reappears again and again. I will not take it back to the purchasing dealer but to another. I need to have both problems corrected. I like all the others didn’t get what I paid for. Go to YouTube and type in MY GM DONT WORK Thanks

This lemon law may or may not be the right road for me but i don’t know what else to do.

Lately we have been experiencing flashing radio, stabili track, abs and power steering. The first time we told the dealerahip, he brushed it off and said if it happens again call us. Well it happened again. Our apt is thursday so hoping for good results. I want my other car back 🙁

Re-starting the car temporarily resolved the problem. At the dealer they said the throttle body needed to be replaced but was not covered under the power train warranty. I have to say that I am very disappointed in GM. I suspect the throttle body damage/contamination was related to the valve cover that recently needed to be replaced.

The check engine light and service stabilitrak notice came and the car was not accelerating. It stopped, but the engine was still running. I then turned the car off for a few and tried to start driving in 10 mins and was able to do so, but the light and notice still came and the car was sputtering down the road. I am taking it to the dealership tomorrow due to me working night shift. This is a brand new car and I do not see why this is happening. I will keep track of everything that happens and the invoices when I take the car in.

I got the stability track engine power reduced warning last winter while sitting in the car with the heater turned on and the car idling for a long time. I had to turn the engine off wait for a bit and then turn it back on to get it to work. It happens at least five more times during the winter but never had a problem since.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                When this winter rolled around it started doing it again. For the past month I have not been able to drive my car without it happening at least once or twice. It happens as soon as I take off I assume it has to do with the car being cold or something. But it also happens or if I am running it’s heater.

It had plenty of power but would not start. Had it towed back…was told they replaced several wires? Picked it up and drove home and it died 6miles in…traction control off, service stabilitrac and reduced engine power warnings then immediately lost power…I was driving 55mph! Scary!! Needless to say it was towed back…they couldn’t reproduce it but said they found more wires that needed replacement?? Picked it up a week later…. Again I was only 6 or 7 miles down the road and again!! Same issue….it was towed back to GM….they said they couldn’t reproduce it…they replaced something..oh and he told me that this was not the car’s original engine!!! It had previously been replaced!!! ….it has been almost a month….and guess what happens today! Yup you guessed it! My husband has just been deployed again overseas….we need a safe and reliable vehicle!! I’m scared to drive this car! What if I’m driving and it shuts off again? It’s winter now!! I have kids in my car all the time!! The car cannot be controlled safely with no power if the roads are slippery or if I’m on the highway. Not to mention we are in a deep freeze this week….if it shuts off and I’m on a remote road we are going to freeze! Below zero with wind chills at -30°…..GM needs to fix this friggin issue….before someone gets killed!!

Have had no problems until now. Throttle body/sensor error that everyone has been speaking of. The GM recall 11273 does not apply to my VIN. How incredibly stupid is this. I have the exact same issues as what the recall is for, but the GM 800/458-8006 number tells me that based on my VIN, even though I am having the exact same issues, it isn’t covered!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      On TWO different days, today and on Saturday, I’m driving along, 65-70mph and all of a sudden the vehicle cuts out on me, seems to have lost all lower, Stabilitrak error message, Engine power reduced message, traction icon yellow vehicle with squiggly tracks, and check engine light!!!! I am lucky to be alive because I was in front of an 18-wheeler when it happened this morning on my way to work!!! Call dealership, try say I can drive it if I drive under 20mph. Takes me 2hrs to get to the dealership at that speed. Took back roads. Had to pull over about 10 times as the error message kept coming on again, stabilitrak, reduced engine speed, check engine light. Now, the dealership is charging me $800!!!!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      When GM finally has enough people killed from this stupid half-assed recall, then they will try to do some mass recall. It’s a real sickening shame to have to pay to fix something that they know is a manufacturer issue!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I will post this on EVERY Social media means possible and hope that it goes viral and maybe then, when other 2010 Cadillac SRX owners start complaining, maybe they will do something to correct this sketchy recall to include ALL GM vehicles that have this problem.

I just took it to the dealer yesterday morning and am waiting for news on what that caused the lights to come on. Before I left my vehicle I asked for the Service Manager’s name. I was asked if there was anything wrong and I responded, no but just in case there is I want to know who I should contact. I received a call yesterday late afternoon from the Technician advising me that they still have not figured out what’s actually wrong. They’re not sure if it’s sensors or wiring problems. The Tech told me that it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. Hmmm! I think that GM needs to have a recall for this issue, don’t you? I’ve always purchased Ford and never had any issues of this kind.

While driving last night the Stabilitrak light,check engine light, and warnings for reduced engine power. it almost did not make it over the bridge I was on. Got to the bottom of the bridge and turned it off then back on and it would drive. All the lights and warnings still on. It did it again after dinner (Car sat for 2 hours) it happened again after 15 miles or so of driving. That is also about how many miles we had driven before dinner. Going to the dealer tomorrow.

This past weekend I ran into a problem in which the engine light suddenly went on with the message “! engine power is reduced” and right after that another msg showed up Stabilitrak and the car roughly came to a stall. After it stopped I turned the engine off and let it off for about 5 minutes I started it back on and it let me drive again.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            The dealer where I bought the car scheduled for me to come in tomorrow to take a look at it.

Depending on the repair, there is a good chance the matter will be covered under your powertrain warranty.

Throttle position sensor. It’s covered. I hope all these people above know there’s a special extended warranty gm is giving to 120k miles or ten years for this issue. (Reduced engine power) I feel bad for all who paid that money. Hope you recover it. I’m working on 2 years of this stabiltrack service 4wdetc issue. I’m frustrated!! I have had two things replaced, way too many trips over the past two years and this is third attempt. I took pictures and video 60 percent of the time so It is documented when it would happen. So over my chevy! It’s a shame bc I’ve had a suburban every three to four years for the past 15 years. I’m reconsidering buying a chevy again. Too bad

Cars is driving rough. Took it to the dealer, car has some extended warranty on these parts. I was told that my car has non-factory spark plugs in it and that is causing a miss fire. Therefore it is not covered. I KNOW for a fact that my care has the same spark plugs in it because they are 100 mile plugs and my car doesn’t have 70,000 miles on it yet. I got it new at rick Hendricks. I have only had oil changes done at other places, no other work done on my care by anyone other than the two rick dendricks dealerships I have been using since I got the car. Now they say they won’t cover the repair because of the spark plugs and are trying to charge me over 200 bucks for something I know is a lie. How do I get them to honor the warranty? This is a common problem in these cars and I feel like they were just trying to play me for more money. Any advise or suggestions would be helpful. Thank you. Carmela

I am 19 so I must admit, I have no idea what is going on with my car. However, for the longest time, everyday the StabaliTrak would show up on the screen in my car. I had it checked out, and nothing came up on their computer, they said everything was okay. It repeatedly came on everyday, along with the ABS light, I honestly stopped paying attention to it. But about two weeks ago now, I had just started driving down the road from my house and the StabaliTrak light came on, then the ABS, then the check engine light, then the “Engine Power Reduced” popped up,all at once. My car then proceded to slow down tremendously and started kind of grumbling, I had to call TripleA. The mechanic I go to is a family friend and he experienced it himself while driving my car, but nothing is coming up on those computers they use. I was just wondering if anyone else had had a similar experience as me and if they figured out what the issue was. I’m in college and bought this car on my own, it was supposed to be a more reliable car for me… I have horrible luck with cars. It is only 5 years old too, so it’s like what could be the issue?!?!

To all And LEMON LAW,we previously sued and won on a 1998 chevy under Implied Consent, we would not agree to an additional 30 days for a fix but would agree for a 6th fix under the lemon law judgement that we got.It was take all or nothing.

The good old stabilitrack warning/ shake rattle and roll to the shoulder. Yes its happened to be multiple times over the years. Originally dealer unable to diagnosis till I drove it there while it was flashing the warning…We ended up changing speed control sensor in the accelerator foot pedal. Fixed it for awhile. But in the last 6 months its back.!!!!! I’ve seen it so much I know how to react to it now. It will happen in extreme heat 90 plus or 30 and lower. Eventually someone is going to be seriously hurt by this.!!!! Chevy should recall all these rigs and repair. I will say a quick fix is just disconnect the negative cable for 5 minutes then connect again it seems to clear it up short term. I will say I have had this vehicle from mile #1 and except for this issue been solid. Its a mystery.????????

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Dealer was and has been unresponsive to follow up calls for repair, and non-explanatory to risk, although they did make 1 unsuccessful attempt to fix when I drove there without shceduled appointment.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            My own online research turned up all these stories of power loss and such, so I have had no idea of the risk (mechanical or safety) of continued use, therefore the truck has sat in my driveway essentially unused since I ironically bought new tires. I submitted an inquiry via corporate who opened a case and prompted the dealer to follow up.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            After playing phone tag with dealer for another month, Service Manager asked me to recount the story, which I did in detail per his request.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            We agreed to appt day/time, then once he thought he hung up but before my cell disconnected, he started commenting “WHOOO, the dude kept talking and wouldn’t shut up, do you want me to fix it or not?”.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I then heard laughter from several people in the background, it was only then that I concluded I had been on a speaker phone to an audience.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            When I responded and he realized I was still on the line he said “oops” and hung-up immediately.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            He called back in a minute or two and said “did you hear all that?”.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I said yes and the appt should be cancelled because I won’t deal with them any longer.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            This problem is apparently something GM and it’s dealers are content to laugh off, so now I remain stuck making payments on something I cannot use in good faith.

Dealer is charging me 585.00 to replace the throttle body (Dan Tobin in Columbus Ohio). The rep says it is not part of the power train warranty, said they have no choice but to charge me for it. How is it that some dealers will cover it under the power train, and others like Dan Tobin won’t?

There’s a post on this thread about the butterfly valve that allows oil level to rise, that it might stick and monkey with the oil pressure and trip the TPS. will take it in to gm under the 120k extended For throttle body adjustment, has anyone experienced a perm FIX for this yet? or a helpful tip to get it under control, ie, revving engine?

The truck reduces speed, rides rough, tries to accelerate when braking, accelerated on its own when placed in drive/reverse. Engine speed reduces to 35mph. Says to service Stabalitrack, traction control, reduced engine speed.

How can I get it to the nearest gmc dealer when it drives this way, and is over 20 miles away. Big loophole for GMC. I’ll never own one again. Junk. Sheet metals junk too.

Service Stabiltrak light and Engine Power Reduced light came on. Took it to Chevy only after they agreed to cover the cost of the diagnostic test. Already spent $700 to replace camshaft sensors at a mechanic. Mechanic told me timing chain and throttle body was bad. Chevy said exact same thing. They issued a recall on a 3.6V engine, but not the 3.0V engine which is what I had. Of course it wasn’t covered under warranty, but after threatening to call an attorney, they agreed to replace timing chain, throttle body and charge $600. Picked it up, 4 days later, same thing! Driving it Service Stabiltrak, Traction Control and Check Engine light all came on, car shaking excessively! Car only has 60k miles on it.

If these parts are all interchangeable does it not stand to reason that those issues would be across the board? Just a thought.

At first the problem presented itself while coming off highway ramps where the Gs would cause the lights and alarms to sound. Then it started to go off just stopping and my wife would say the breaks would act odd. So I figured the brake system was suspect and added brake fluid yes just brake fluid. I felt it was worth $5 which was better than what the dealership would charge me. Some how the systems works with the braking systems other functions.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    So upon filling the brake system back to normal levels. The problem was corrected. This was 2 months ago and all is good.

Unbelievable after 100 miles. Will repost after it is check I now regret getting rid of my 2004.

Before that, it was acting sluggish; hesitating, then jerking at take-off and RPMs fluctuating wildly while holding steady pressure on the gas pedal. Dealer couldn’t re-create or find any error messages at initial visit. After almost being killed twice (with my kids in the car), AND getting the error messages, the dealer found the trouble. After $550, I have a new throttle body assembly. This BETTER work. This car is as close to garbage as you can get. Has already blown an engine (at 37K miles) and blown a fuel injector (at 38K miles); both of which left me stranded on highways 50+ miles from home. I’ll post back if any additional issues.

I really like the car. It has 48000 miles, purchase new. The last couple of months been experiencing a problem with the Stabilitrak. Light comes on and off sporadically. My wife first notice it on her way to work, driving about 60 on the pkwy. All of a sudden the light comes on, says engine speed will be diminished..She goes for 60 to 25 just like that!! Cars, slamming on their brakes, beeping. etc. I thought maybe she just hit the traction control button by mistake. She came home after work, no problems. A few days later it happened again. Very dangerous to drive like this. Took it to dealer. of course not covered under warranty..$600 to replace throttle valve. Is GM waiting for some serious problems before they take care of this problem? There is also a voluntary recall for a power steering problem…I told them when I had the car in that the steering was a little hard to turn. Of course the problem they found was I was leaking steering fluid, which of guess it, was not part of this recall for the steering…another $1200, which I did not have done. I’m gonna pursue this with Chevy & the BBB.. These are not problems we have created due to lack of maintenance, driving, etc.

I Replaced the gas pedal and all was well for 3k miles and then the stabilitrak light and check engine light came on and my mechanic tells me the connector on right rear auto ride is corroded. you have to replace the whole wire harness for a bad connector at a price of $2000. I asked them to bypass the connector and splice the harness together. Should get the truck back soon to see if that will take care of the issue.

My car has less than 4,000 miles and is in the shop, for the second time, with the StabilTrak issue. The first time they replaced the negative battery cable and now they are saying the speed sensor needs to be replaced. The first time it took a week to get the part and this time it will take about 4 days. So, my car will have been in their shop 4 times to address this issue. Reading some forums online, I’m not feeling very warm and fuzzy that the speed sensor will fix the issue. According to my Sate’s, (Washington), lemon law, they have 4 chances to get it right, 2 if it’s considered a safety hazard. However, they don’t define what constitutes a “safety hazard”.

I see by the number of entries this is a common problem with GM. why has there not been a recall?? sounds like the people that have brought this problem in to the dealerships are not getting this resolved

Now just yesterday a second time milage 90,000 same issue. Why does this keep having to be replaced and I have to pay? What can I do to get my money back? Especially since the dealership already did repairs and stated I shouldn’t have anymore problems.

I had to replace my battery last week, and now my stabilitrak light and service traction control light is on. I am terrified from the Internet research I have been doing that people are losing power steering and it slows down on them on the interstate. I will be taking it in to get checked, but if I have to spend multiple visits and a bunch of money, and it doesn’t get fixed, does a lemon law apply with a used vehicle as is? I can’t afford a new car. Paid cash for it.

Called the dealership and told them I was bringing it over after work. When I started the vehicle after work the check engine light was still on then about 30 seconds later the Traction Control Light and the Reduced Engine Light came on and started running really rough while it was idling in park. Shut it off and restated it and it was fine.(Check engine light still on.) Dealership just cleared the code and said if it comes on again to let them know. Of course it did the next morning. So far it has done it four times in the last four days. Taking it in tomorrow to see what’s up. I will update this as soon as I find out anything.

Had you filed within the statute of limitations, you would have most likely received thousands back under breach of warranty.

But the next time we drive it, they don’t. Then they reappear again. Not sure what to do or where to go, as dealerships seem to be clueless in regards to finding solutions, and we are not made of money. We would like to fix this, but after reading all of these reports, it is a bit disconcerting. Were there any Recalls Coverings this for our vehicle? We have owned since new.

There has been no problems until now. I bought the car new. I need to take to dealer if so what is the approximate cost to have this fixed?

Engine light flashing and stabilitrack light on. Truck shook while driving. Took it home, parked it and called Chevy. Monday appointment and was told it was ok to drive. I think not. It has 24,000 road miles on it and been in for regular service as required. On board dash computer has had some issues. Hoping for a better outcome than most of the posts here. Owned Chevy truck all my life. My 2009 was a true lemon, but all others were great.

A couple of days ago my service stabilitrak light came on along with my check engine light. My RPM gauge also stopped working. Since the stabiltrak light came on my vehicle has a real hard time starting and when it does start it idles rough. Also, I’ve had a problem with the vehicle jerking when changing gears up and down (this started about a week after I bought the vehicle ;( ). Taking it to the stealer tuesday. but i will say that this is by far the worst vehicle I have owned and the worst investment i have ever made, and thats saying alot.

Took to the dealer and $700 later picked it up, running just fine. Early Sept. 2015 – same error codes, took back to dealer, they said they replaced the throttle body. 3 days later, same error lights and codes. Dealer says “They don’t know what’s wrong.” I checked the recalls – nothing there about this problem, yet as I research, I find 1000’s of Chevy owners, with all types of vehicles are having the problem. What’s the status of the Class Action ???

I have had so many problems with this vehicle and it’s costing me thousands of dollars in repairs. Please forgive me if I am using incorrect terminology when describing these problems. To begin with, the steering rack went out at about 60,000 miles. Then something happened with an engine coil, and there is a strut leaking. Yesterday, I spent $800 to have the catalytic converter replaced. Driving into work this morning the service stabilizer/traction control light is on now. I am sick of this vehicle. Taking the vehicle back to the dealer in the morning.

The dealer said that it didn’t have anything to do with the work they did with installing a new cat converter. They said it was a break pedal switch. Oh, and to add to the list of repairs…I forgot that my a/c went out this summer. More $$$ spent. I will post an update on the stabiltrak/traction control service light if it comes on again.

I have 11,000 miles on it and twice in the past couple of weeks, we have pulled into a parking spot and have had the stabilitrac warning come on, all of the dash lights and radio go black, and the steering wheel jolted out of our hands into the straight position. One of those times, having the steering wheel ripped from my hands almost caused me to hit a dumpster that was next to the parking spot I was trying to pull into. Most recently, two nights ago, I was driving on the interstate at 80 mph and noticed that all of the interior lighting started mildly pulsating. A few minutes later, ALL of the lighting including the interior and headlights shut down. At the same instant, the steering wheel jolted into the straight postition. I instinctively tapped my brake pedal to see if I even had brakes, and the lighting all came back on, with the exception of the headlights. They flashed like a strobe pattern for a few seconds, then stayed on. Needless to say, I’m scared to drive it until I know its been fixed. Anyone else had this happen to them?

The Tahoe had 29,000 miles on it at time of purchase. In May of this year, while my wife was driving she got the usual messages of “Stabilitrak Off” “Traction Control Off” and “Reduced Engine Power.” The check engine light came on, and she momentarily lost power steering. We took the vehicle in for repair, where a the diagnostic revealed a bad throttle body. The throttle body was repaired under warranty and returned to us “fixed.” A few weeks ago, the same issues reared their ugly head again. My wife turned the Tahoe off/on, and it appeared as if the Tahoe was running better. This weekend, the truck had immediate engine power loss while exiting the freeway. We took it into service today, where at the end of the day the service advisor told us we had the “mystery car” and they have not been able to diagnose the problem. My wife was told they would try a “PIN test” tomorrow to see if that would aid in finding the cause of the issue. Any suggestions on what to do? I’m lost. I have a family of 6, and I can’t have these issues happen on a car I thought would be reliable.

Driving normally and service engine light comes on immediately followed by “SERVICE STABILITRAK AND SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL” the engine power is reduced to the point where the truck “limps home”

I took the truck from the dealer and while leaving, the the symptoms started again. I turned around and returned to the dealer. Two days later I was told that the only way to determine what is causing this is to start replacing parts starting with the valve body. The dealer could not tell exactly which parts were causing the issue. At that point I was told that he “RESET ALL THE SETTINGS” ( THEY CAN RESET IT, BUT CAN’T FIX IT????) The truck ran fine for a few months. When it happened again, I searched online and found this IS NOT an isolated incident. I then disconnected the battery, let it sit for 15 minutes (recommend by the dealer) and re connected it. Problem gone, until now. This time the problem did not go away when I disconnected the battery.

I find it hard to believe that with the amount of talk about this issue on all the GM forums none of the GM service desks know about it.

Surprise. My truck is sitting in my driveway now. What recourse do I have?

This weekend the stabilitrack light came on out of nowhere while I was stopped at a light.I lost engine power (warning message and beeps) rough idle. Very dangerous situation with cars behind you during rush hour. I have to pull over, stop the suv, I have about 45 seconds to do this. If I turn it off and back on the suv the light will go away temporarily before coming back on randomly . I also stopped by the dealer/ mechanic as my engine light is on. They took codes and replaced the throttle body, over $500 dollars to fix, Knock on wood, issue so far. Very dangerous….

I bought it in 2013 it only had 38,000 miles on it. I hardly drive it and it is garage kept. It ran wonderfully now 2 years later and now 48,000 miles I get a message to service the stabilitrak system. The yellow light with the car with the curving lines went on. My ABS light went on, My traction control light went on my check engine went on. And believe it or not my power locks went crazy locking and unlocking the doors several times by themselves. Luckily I was waiting for my wife who was in the bank so I was parked with the engine running when all this happened. When she returned I went to run the car and it had no power at all. Got it home and back in the garage. I started the car later that day and everything was back to normal no lights no warning. I came across this web site and I can’t believe how many people are having the same problem. I’ve always wanted a Cadillac now I think I made a mistake buying one. I should have gotten a Mercedes or BMW instead. Now I wonder should I get it repaired or just get rid of it. Doesn’t seem like GM knows whats wrong. I just hate that someone else will buy my car and have the same problem.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I have noticed the stabilitrack light came on for a second and went right away around Aug. That happened a few times but both Onstar monthly diagnostic and Chevy Check Up did not find anything wrong, report came out that my car was in good condition.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  On 11/23, “Service Power Steering” came up while I was driving and my steering wheel became very heavy for a few seconds. I was driving at 35m/h at that time but I was so afraid because I could not turn all of a sudden and my daughter was in my car and it was a moderately busy street.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  On 11/24, “Service Stabilitrak”, “Service Power Steering” and “Engine Check” came on. I stopped the engine for a while and turned the engine back on to see if I still see the light. I could not start the engine at first. After a few tries of turn key process, the engine started. The light went away. Made an appointment for check up at dealer on 11/27.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  On 11/25, My car wouldn’t start. “Service Srabilitrak”, “Service Power Steering”, “Engine Check” and non stop alarm of ding ding ding came on. Car smelled like nail polish remover from outside around hood and exhaust. Called Onstar for on demand diagnostic and hoped to get some kind of help. Onstar told me it was some kind of communication failure and transmission problem. I needed a ride to drop off my daughter and she was already late so I asked if Onstar agent can find a phone number for taxi company. She put me on hold about a few min and she came back and told me “I’m sorry I can not give you those information because you have just protection plan and you are not subscribed” I was so disappointed and made me think what if I’m half dead. She wanted to send me road assistance right away, yes that is her job and I understand. But it was already in the evening and next day was thanks giving so no one could take care of my car even at the dealer. So, I asked if my car will be sitting at the dealer until Friday without checking in. She could not answer so I told her I will call back on my appointment day so she can send me an assistance. I mean, what a help.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  On 11/27, My car wouldn’t start again and this time my car seemed like lost all power. Warning lights went out. Called Onstar and asked for towing truck. 2 and a half hour later, finally my car was on the towing truck.

The dealer told me it was a bad battery and they replaced it.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I asked service agent if this problem is common. He told me it’s not common but just some electrical issues.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  On 11/29, once again “Service Stabilitrack” came on but went away. The steering wheel felt very heavy and stiff. This time I was making left turn and I was about 45 m/h. Very scary moment of my life. I never experienced a single accident so my heart was pounding and I started to sweat. I made an appointment right after for 12/1.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  On 11/30, I had to use my car because my other car was in use. “Service Stabilitrak”, “Service Power Steering”, “Engine Check” and “Eco Mode On” came on while I’m driving and those lights came on randomly. Steering wheel once again felt heavy and taco meter and speed meter started swinging when “Eco Mode On” was on. When the meter was down, the engine felt like it’s almost to stop. I dropped it off at the dealer right away before my appointment. My appointment was the next day but I thought my car was/is very dangerous and could be fatal.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  On 12/1, my car is still at the dealer. I called Chevy Customer Service to ask if they know about this problem or if there is any hidden recall on this model. And also wanted to know if they have any buy back or replacement program for faulty car.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  The Customer Service Agent made me a case file and I was able to speak to Senior Super Visor. She told me there is no recall on my car and she told me to speak to local dealer management about buy back or replacement program. She set up arrangement with dealer and someone from the dealer is supposed to call me in 24 to 48 hours.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  On 12/2, my car is still at dealer and still waiting for a phone call from them. No info so far.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I bought this car for my peace of mind. It was used but had only 300 miles on it. Added extended warranty, other protections including Onstar so I can be able to let my children drive without worry. Now I’m afraid to drive myself even if they say it’s fixed because I have already experienced the fear of accident with this car. And also seems like no one knows how to fix this problem. Everybody wondering, trying and testing with life on board.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I can not sell this car right now because my loan amount is more than the actual car value. I can not afford to lose any money for faulty car. And trip to dealer itself is so much time consuming.

I follow steps, I spend money when it’s recommended or necessary.

The reason why? because I trusted GM.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  If GM knows about this, they should do something about it instead of concealing the problem. They could kill so many people.

Most of my problems happened while the car was under warranty and I did file a Lemon Law complaint about a few things a few years ago. Today my Stabilitrak and ABS lights are on. Thank goodness we’re having a warm winter! I’ll be taking it to my mechanic this week. Can’t wait to get this bill right before the holidays… :-/

We have (2) 2011 Expressway Vans. (1) had a problem and they completed a recall on the steering column and the problem has not returned. Second van is an ongoing problem. Wheel sensor has been replaced several times. Problem usually occurs on wet roads; one time they repaired a loose heat shrink, another time they replaced a wire that appeared to have cracked insulation in the wire harness. This affected the longest up time, but, it has failed again.Greatest concern is that it affects the brakes and braking distance. When the warning lights go off and on sporadically, we find that the brakes occasionally go soft without warning; when the lights are on the brakes are stiff like no ABS. This time the warning lights start to flash on and off every few seconds.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Continually sounds like and electrical problem; butnt out sensors and wires. Our local Chevy dealer has been very supportive; however, the lack of confidence in the brakes and the continual downtime of a service vehicle is difficult to deal with.

My stabilitrak keeps telling me it needs serviced but only when I am setting in a parking lot restarting my radio when I turn on key after radio stops it shows service stabilitrak the dealer says they can’t get a code an they have contacted gm an they don’t know either I pay way to much to have a truck they is not full functioning they say they can’t help me till it reads that while I’m driving I have took it there 3 times for this reason I have 2 children in this truck all the time I drive it daily I have read that the stabilitrak is a kind of computer an it controls things like my traction control an other things that’s not good for me considering I live in the mountains an have horrible terrain to driving in during the winter is there a recall coming soon is my question or what is the next thing I should b doing

The “Service Trac. Control”, “Service stabilitrak”, and “Low engine power” came up on the reader and the check engine light came on. Going down the street, the truck would surge forward when she’d take her foot off the gas. The mechanic says they know what the problem is and have a fix. I’ll have to speak with them to know what exactly they think is happening. It’ll be interesting to see if their fix does the job.

It last about 10 -15 minutes. I had told GM about my issues when my vehicle was still under warranty. They could never seem to find any problems. It got to the point I would not let my wife drive it. Even to this day I drive it and it happens every morning. It will start normally – give it 2 minutes and the routine begins like clock work. Let it go through its motions for 10 – 12 minutes and it stops but the engine light will stay on. (sometimes). If changing throttle body sensor will alleviate my problem, please pipe in and drop me a line. GM obviously doesn’t give a crap.

And bam they came on grrrr I just bought it! I don’t have the money to fix this issue. Why hasn’t GM put a recall on this problem? Also the have a problem with the exhaust manifold bolts breaking off and also flexplate craking. GM really needs to step up and fix these issues.

But soon the lights went off and returned to normal but now the lights will not go away and the hard shifts are constant !! Chevrolet needs to do a recall and fix this problem cause no one in my area knows what to do ! I e spent well over $2000 trying to resolve this problem with no prevail !!! It’s all over the Internet with Chevy Silverado owners from 2007-2013 having the same issues ! We need this resolved ! Cause it’s an obvious problem all over the world !!!!

The NorthEast is going through a cold spell and I was surprised to see the “Service Stabilitrack”, “Traction Control Off” and engine light all come on shortly after starting driving (had warmed the car up before setting off).

Estimate $750 to replace sensors.

I am angry that so many people are having these issues and Chevrolet has done nothing to fix the situation. What should I do? I am beyond the 40000 Mile warranty. Please help!

Is this normal? All seemed well with this car in the beginning. The brake lights do not work except on top. I spent so much on changing the bulbs and that was not the problem. Service traction…service stabilitrak…power engine decrease…

You drive 20 feet, the stabilitrak and TSC lights come on and states they are off. The mechanic thought it was a right wheel sensor, and they stay off for a month, then they just stay on now. I have replaced so many different parts in this car, it is not funny. Their electronics is awful, obviously got a lemon.

Significant vibration in engine at coasting speed down hill. Once at bottom of hill, lights all went off, including CEL. No further issues for weeks until last Friday when CEL light and “Engine power down” warnings came on while driving in town. Managed to get the vehicle home and then in to the dealership for inspection this morning. CEL light was illuminated on the drive to the dealership – when restarted by dealer, CEL went out and all appears normal. I will know more tomorrow after diagnostics complete – I have 2 Acadia’s and have had issues with both. Looking for replacement options!

Last week car had problem accelerating traction abs and engine light flashed on dashboard trouble getting in gear then eventually stalled. Took it to the shop was told my alternator was bad and needed to be replaced. $600 to replace alternator few days later problem happens again. Abs traction and engine lights all back on. Had it towed to the dealer yesterday hoping to hear today what the “possible” issue is. Read on different forums other owners have expirenced shames issues and GM does absolutely nothing about it. Very concerned as I bought this car June 2015 and it less 75k miles I transport my 4 children daily now I feel like I am putting our life’s at risk. What do I do??

I have the Stablitrac off, Traction control off lights coming on as well as check engine light . Stablitrac and Traction lights go off after several seconds. Engine light remains on. Have taken it into my dealer, they can only find codes for to lean on 1 bank and to rich on another. Have been unable to diagnose the Stablitrac and Traction control off lights. Currently at the dealer for the past 2 days. GM NEEDS TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE ON THIS ISSUE. Tahoe has 105,000 miles on it. Been dealing with this issue for the past year and a half.

Near Charolotteville, VA the front end began shaking, thought I had a flat but didn’t. Drove slowly off the next exit and had towed to GMC dealer and rented a car to get home. Now Monday night and dealer has not looked at it yet. After reading this forum, I have no idea what they’ll tell me is wrong, hoping it’s just the front wheel bearing, I’ve had this happen on 2 other Chevy trucks, but the symptoms was different, let you all know soon.

I have taken excellent care of the car and do not travel much.

It has happened several times in the past month then the car is fine. I have read several owners of this car and the Chevy Cruze had similiar problems. Seems like people have narrowed it down to loose or bad battery cables, bad alternators, and faulty body control modules.

I have multiple videos of the date and time as soon as it occurred and took videos of where I was at. I have had it even kick in 3 times while the cruise was set at 75 and i was in the passing lane. Needless to say, that is by far the most dangerous place for it to occur. The throttle sensor has already been replaced and now they want me to spend another $1100.00 to fix something else…WTH! There are times I have gone to leave the house and it comes on as soon as I turn the key on. I will never buy a chevy again…now I need help in figuring out how to get it fixed properly and Chevy needs to take responsibility for their faulty product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last October we were hit by an idiot teenage girl who ran into front right of truck and with foot on accelerator, ran down the whole side. Her insurance wont pay so its all on us – and we were just driving home from supper! That was $20,000 to fix and rent car for nearly two months! About two months ago the stabilitrak malfunction warning came up on screen while shutting everything down. Got worse! In shop now and waiting for verdict!

Power went from 20 mph to stalling at first. Then I restarted it and was fine. So I ignored it. Has happened so many times and then less often still ignored it cuz was running fine after all these yrs but every once in while light still comes on but don’t loose any power. Well yesterday sevice Stabili Trac light came on and would go off, still had power. Then came on and now won’t go off at all. Well it might cuz I made it home without any problems. Now if I turn it on again it will stay off I guess. WTH is the problem for real?

Could NOT duplicate the issue with stabilitrak – although, it had several ABS low voltage codes. They cleared the codes and test drove – shows normal. Its all bunnies and roses!!! I left them with a letter that states if me or my family are injured or killed due to them NOT being able to diagnose an obvious issue where the engine shuts down, takes the steering wheel out of your hands and locks the doors all at the same time – than my family or I will hold the dealership and General Motors responsible! The dealership also had us be there, per appt. at 7:30 am on a Monday and didn’t even begin checking out truck until Friday morning – after my husband called to check! $350 out of MY pocket for a rental!!

I was told by the head of the service dept. that there is a loaner truck waiting for me if I bring my truck back. They are bringing an engineer in from General Motors and crediting back my rental car money! Supposedly, they didn’t know that I had called General Motors yesterday. Sucky thing is that they have to drive and duplicate the problem – I wonder how many miles they will put on MY truck!

The dealership replaced the ENGINE WIRING HARNESS JUNCTION BLOCK. There was an issue in the building of the vehicle in the factory (and how many others?). They couldn’t duplicate the issues truck was having and went to GM for any bulletins they may have had with this type of problem and there was one. Will see….Oh, and the loaner was a 2016 Chevy truck with 186 miles on it and they did cover the $349 rental I had to pay for! Thank God someone finally listened – of course, with a threat!

I had a check engine light message occur after having my vehicle (Malibu 2013) for only a month. I have repeatly complained about this issue but the dealer explained they couldn’t find anything wrong. Recently I received a message twice “service stabili trak”. After receiving this message I had to get a jump for my battery 5 times. I got a diagnostic test on the battery and it reported that it was okay. I will return to the dealership or seek a lemon law attorney, or both.

Took it the dealership and after the appraisal was done had to wait until finance dept opened again the next day. We stopped for supper on the way home and the battery was dead! Had to be jumped off! Called dealership next morning and was told the battery was good the week before when I took it home. Took it BACK in and ran tests and 3 hours later had a new battery installed because it had a dead cell. Thank goodness THAT was covered under warranty! Now, it’s the dealership’s problem!

I’ve had it for about a year now and it’s now coming up to 35000 and I have made all oil changes on time. I live in CA, it’s been hot and humid all summer. Last night was the first night in a while that it’s been cold. I work extremely early in the am and when I turned on my car, it sounded like it didn’t want to turn on and the lights had issue turning on almost as if the battery was low. After about 6 miles of driving on the streets to work, I stopped at a light and when it turned green I tried to accelerate then I experienced low power from the engine then the chime went off along with the check engine light and the Stabilitrak light. I have called 2 dealerships and still waiting on a call back to schedule an appointment as they were both on lunch when I called.

The SUV just slowed down with the acceleration not working. I came to a complete stop on the highway as I was not able to pull over due to the wall barriers. You talk about scared!!! It almost caused a major pile up. My SUV stopped completely. I turned off the engine then back on immediately and it worked when I put it back in gear, all lights went out except engine light. The next day the engine light was off. I took it to the local Cadillac dealership and explained to him what happen and he advised he has never heard of this and with no lights on they would not be able to detect why this happen. He advised just to watch it and see if it happens again. Easy for him to say as he wasn’t the one who almost caused a major pile up on the expressway!

I’m told it’s the fuse block but the car has shut down on my 5 times while driving. Very dangerous. The dealership isn’t 100% sure this is the fix. I am not happy about paying the $500 and have a complaint in with Chevy but they could care less and are slow to respond.

The stabiltrak light went on yesterday as I started it in the garage, it shook so bad and started smelling like something other than fuel was being burnt. I shut it down and brought it to dealer today(Monday). They were understanding and gave me a loaner after I told them it couldn’t wait til Tuesday like originally asked. After reading these threads I’m waiting for the call where they say sorry the code didn’t save or everything seems fine. If the problem is under the powertrain umbrella than my warranty will cover it, I’m at 70k miles.

Nothing is covered in the powertrain warranty that I still have for another 30k miles. They said they’ve seen it a lot where the carbon is caked on the fuel injectors and causing the error code: “This happens from putting low grade fuel in the car and not beating on it to get the rmps high enough to help clean them.” –Really? the car is four years old and this is a typical problem that a four year old car has? And it was pre-certified, that’s not something that would come across a year and a half ago when I purchased it?

The first time the stabilitrak, traction control came on they told me it was the brake master cylinder…replaced that to have it back within 2 weeks..this time the transmission control module…2 months later back again..with same warning lights…this time they tell me it’s the throttle body..not to mention the water pump…power steering motor that I have the same warnings popped up again..I don’t have the money to keep pouring into this car but I feel like I would lose so much money by trading. can somebody HELP. And the TSM wasn’t covered by special warranty because it was about 7,000 miles past the coverage limit. and there is a warranty on the 07 and 09 for the throttle body but not the 08??? Does the lemon law apply to used vehicles too or just new?

My check engine light came on 3 times this week. First time I was told it was an electrrical issue and that a wire was touching a cylinder. Then the next time the light came on, I got a warning that I have low engine pwer and something about stability tracking. I took it back and they told me it was the cam shaft and fuel sensors and system. They replaced it. Within 24 hours the light is back on and I am dropping my car off once again. I have a child that I drive around and I have to drive on the highways. When the light goes on while driving, I immediately stall out or slow to 30 mph. I can;t get it to go any faster than that. I can;t have that happen when I am driving on the turnpike. If my car slows down to 30 when everyone behind me is going 65-75 mph I am dead. I do not feel safe and I do not want this vehicle or another GM vehicle for that matter. What really makes me mad, is that I can’t even get a loaner car without having to pay for it. I am sorry, but if you have my car for 2 days and still can;t get it fixed then I think we have bigger problems here.

I let the truck sit for a day as i tried to google the issue. Later that day, the truck was fine after just sitting. 1 week later, the problem resurfaced while on the highway on my wat to work. Called the dealer where i purchased it, NO luck since i purchase a used truck just outside of its warranty. The truck has 129K and was a one owner truck; purchased and serviced at the same dealer since 2007. So, yes, after reading all the complaints about the stability trac and service traction control issues; this is definitely a problem that should be dealt with by GM. It’s VERY DANGEROUS…i almost got into several accidents trying to pull over when this last happened while driving on the highway. Someone is going to get injured or even killed due to this GM malfunction. It’s not a “used truck” thing…this issue is happening to “brand new” trucks with 1000 miles or less as well. Please help…what can I do???

I am also having the Service Stabilitrac, Traction control, ABS light issue. We bought it at 55k miles and it just started happening around 84k. I always do my own oil changes and have to clean the oil out of the “sump” in the intake tube (ridiculous). I have sprayed CARB cleaner into the throttle body and the intake (with the engine off). I have cleaned some grime off of all the wheel speed sensors. The issue,as all others has mentioned, comes and goes. I don’t want my wife or kids to get hurt from an issue that it appears Chevy isn’t dealing with. Now, today, I noticed an antifreeze puddle under the car! What can go wrong next??

Stabilitrak/ABS was repaired with new rear speed sensor; reduced power with replaced throttle body. Around $600 total, not by GM dealer. So far it seems to be working.

I bought extend warranty plus gap insurance 3 months getting it i have serve hail damage that insurance did not give enough for the damage. I just don’t get why for all the things brought in they never find things. window on driver side has issues they claim no problems now passenger side front srarting sma.

Almost went off the road at 55mph. The vehicle is less than 3 yrs old with 47k miles on it. Wth is going on here. After reading all previous posts I now feel I been ripped off as I see no true fix for the issues! Anybody know what to do?

Cadillac finally admitted mistake and tried to make amends by providing a 30k maintenance package . Within the next 20k the light and problem has re- occurred and again Cadillac is denying that the problem is pre – existing . Cadillac is telling me that they will not assist in repairs . I will seek a lemon law attorney, any suggestions.

The engine power is reduced. I see many things that supposedly can fix this issue but they are all from places OTHER than GM. If this is such an issue with so many vehicles why isn’t GM fixing this. The more I look into this vehicles history the more issues seem to come up.

Needless to say, got off to the side of the road and had to get it towed to dealership. Today, called to tell me they had to replace battery and then it still gave them the bells and abs, etc, lights on.So, not fixed. Then I asked for a loaner and they tell me that their concierge is off on Saturday so they didnt have anything to lend me. So I asked how am I getting to work on Monday morning, the same answer, so yeah mine GMC Sierra SLT 2015, is a piece of crap. Should have kept my Lexus. Piss poor response for a person without their car to not have a loaner.

This is a terrible scared feeling. Hope GM solves the problem soon, it will kill people someday otherwise.

We’re having the same issue with the Stabilitrack. I thought it was because I’d driven my truck at 70-80 mph with the cruise control on for a long distance drive. But then this morning I let my truck idle in my driveway for 5 minutes and as I began to slowly leave my driveway the same situation occurred I could not accelerate. The quick diagnostics say throttle body, but does that actually fix the problem? Yes, it’s a bad feeling to lose power and have the engine to idle down when driving 75mph. Did anyone have a successful lawsuit?

This has been going on for years at GM from what I’m reading. I gave up on GM products 16 years ago and have had no major problems with my car. Time to choose another manufacturer.

Sometimes the wheel bearing problem is hard to locate. Any wheel bearing problem will cause the sensor to read incorrectly, thus the service stable track light will come on and the ABS light will come on. When this happens the four wheel drive will not work.It seems it is all on the same circuit. I am a retired mechanic.

The loss of power issue seems to be an extremely unsafe reaction to a “service” warning. My engine cuts out usually at lower speeds and every 20 or so miles. I am wondering why there has not been a recall for this problem. Has anyone had success in repairing this or finding some sort of solution? I’m seriously considering leaving the Chevy / GMC family.

The stabilitrac and ABS light have been on, for past 10,000 miles. I have replaced the disc brakes on all 4 wheels as well as the rotors on all 4- so I cant imagine what would cause the ABS light to be on. Also, the brakes work very well. Other than needing to be replaced twice on truck with less than 38K miles, they seem to work fine.

I also think it is time to look into your State and Federal rights. Visit to find a firm in your state.

I have had to repair the service stable track and service the ABS light come on. The next day out of the shop the ABS come on again alone and not stable track. I used the cruise control when this happened and when I was ready to come home it had repaired its self and it has not come on again but I do not use the cruise control anymore and it does not come on. The dealer changed the throttle positioning sensor , replaced the third brake light and the brake peddle positioning sensor. Cost me $208.00 They told me that even under warranty I would still have to pay for them for putting on the analyzer at the always price of $90.00 I have just over 100K on it with an extended warranty. Why do I have to pay for the analyzer? That is why I have not taken it back for the other ABS problem uhtil it comes up again, Peed off!

The dealership plays dumb, GMC customer service acts like they have never heard of it either. I know a lot of us here have dealt with this run around, But what do I when they cant fix it, wont fix it, and wont help. I basically have a car that Is going to power down the engine at some point, it can very scary on the highway? My question is, am I just screwed here? What is the end game? I just need to know that there’s nothing I can do so I can move on with my life.

Your display also includes reduced engine power DIC display and you stated that the vehicle will, or may possibly, reduce rpms suddenly and possibly lose your power steering/brakes. From what I’ve discovered, your issue can be resolved by replacing the Throttle Body Sensor for the make/model of your vehicle. For my vehicle, I still can’t pinpoint the cause of those indicators being thrown up on our DIC. I’m just going to have to bring it to a dealer and document what transpires… Good luck to Chris and others

Locked up, reduced speed the whole works. I don’t feel safe driving it at all. I really would like my money back. It doesn’t seem fair that I would have to lose all the depreciation on this vehicle if I trade it in on something else. Why aren’t these cars being recalled?

I’m sure everyone who has experienced this can imagine how terrifying this is when you are driving 75mph and you have vehicles all around you and no place to pull over. Luckily my exit was about 8 miles away but that was the scariest 8 miles of my life! Once I got to the thruway toll my truck was shaking and when I went to pull away it was shifting very hard from first to second gear. I’ve been reading multiple sites for a couple hours now and tons of people are reporting this problem and this is just ridiculous, people’s lives are at stake here. I am a retail store manager, I know that’s not life or death type of a job but I need to be at work and I don’t have a replacement that can just fill in for me nor do I have the money to keep getting this truck fixed, I just spent about $2700 about 10 months ago getting 12 lights fixed which I didn’t even know about to get it inspected and another $1,000 getting my axle fixed about 3 months ago… and here I am again… things that cost this much shouldn’t have this many issues… imagine if our houses worked as terrible as the GM vehicles did.

Panicking I pulled closest to off the road as possible with no steering or brakes and limited power. Put vehicle in park was worried what could happen next so I shut off vehicle when I went to start it again 5 minutes later wouldn’t turn over. I still can not get it to start. No one knows what the issue can be for it not starting. And my stabilitrak and traction control light is on service both warning also. And Park assist off. My rear hatch will not open. Lights and radio work but nothing else. Scanned codes and the only ones that came up were ecm/ pcm. Just purchased a new ecm/pcm “brain” waiting to get it programmed and hook up hope this solves the issue. This could have been scary going down the highway at 65 with both my kids in the car. Not happy at all very disgusted with this vehicle. Will not recommend Acadia no more and I loved this Vehicle so much til this.

I only saw the little engine light come up once, blink and go away a few weeks before. I didn’t think much of it. But no other indication. So when this happened I was only about 5 blocks from my office and so glad I had not gotten on the highway to head home.I live an hour and half away to 2 1/2 hours( depending on traffic). Also my dealer for years is about 2-3 hours from my job. It was at 6:30pm so no car rental places were open and the local dealer where this happened service dept was closed. Fortunately I was able to roll into a parking lot which was scary because i could barely stop the car due to everything locking up. It then shut down,wouldn’t start, but the radio worked so I knew it wasn’t the battery. I called Onstar and almost 3 hours later the tow truck came. Weird thing, the car started and the lights went away after sitting all that time. I still was not taking a chance. The driver drove it right on the truck. At that time I had to have someone drive all the way out to pick me up at the dealer where the tow truck dropped it near my job. So I left the keys went home and had to work from home the next day, waiting to hear from dealer if I needed a rental. They called early afternoon and said it was a “communication code issue and they reset it”. Mind you I had to pay $111.50 for him to “Trace it”. My warranty expired at 36,000 . He said it seemed fine/test drove it. I picked up the car the next day and it drove ok for a week. THEN exactly a week later it happened again on the highway on my way to work. It was pouring rain out and this time and all of the lights came on the mph digital screen locked at like 7mph even through i was still going about 45mph and Service Stabiltrak came up but I was still able to drive on low power mode (when i came to a stop it hesitated for the first 10 seconds and then it would move again. I was about 20 min from the dealer near work so I put my hazards on, kept driving and called the dealer very pissed of telling him that I am on my way again. I made it to the dealer and kept the car running so they can see what was happening, They were very laidback about it, and woman came in at the same time yelling at them about her 2 year old equinox air conditioner breaking down with 36,400 miles. She was making a scene so they had to deal with her and said they will call me. Didn’t even offer to drive me 5 miles to work even this being only a week later. I had to be picked up by a coworker and waited to hear if they needed to keep it or i was going to get a loner. I get a call about 5 hours later and he said its fixed here is what he said and that is on my receipt “FOUND COMMUNICATION CODES IN SYSTEM, FOUND OPEN CIRCUIT IN COMMUNICATION LINE TO ACCELERATOR PEDAL CIRCUIT” – It was the same tech from the week before and charged me another $111.50- noted necessary to trace wiring and repair connector…..So to shorten this long story the car has been ok since and tonight and I’m driving home and a flash of the Service Stabiltrak came up for about 5 seconds and went away. I made it home paranoid it would happen again and shut down while on the highway/bridge. Nothing else happened and I made it home but I am furious…So this time I am bringing it to my dealer in the morning….They have always done good by me. I’ve been with them for 7 years. Fingers Crossed!! Please don’t let it be something more like what a lot of you said…..Also ,just a note…This is my 6th Camaro. I’ve been driving them since 1997. (1997,2001(totaled in accident and not a scratch on me), 2002, 2010, 2013 and the current 2015. They have always been great cars with very few issues. Only routine maint. So this is the big first issue I have had with it basically breaking down on me. I have been a loyal Chevrolet customer and I really hope this doesn’t change anything. We’ll see, and I am sorry to hear that so many of you have had so many issues. These issues can be so dangerous if you are at the wrong place at the wrong time.

I have also had the truck in the shop I believe 9 times from dec 2015 to Jan 2016 over exhaust (DEF) problems. GM could never resolve the issues with the exhaust problem. They replaced multiple items and it finally came to the service manager telling me the only thing he could recommend was for me to do a delete to the exhaust system. That was a $2,500 fix that I should not have had to do to a 1 year old truck. In the middle of dealing with that I started having stabilitrak issues. They blamed the exhaust issue on the stabilitrak issue. needless to say I have a truck that is worthless and GM refuses to find/fix the problem. I have given up on GM fixing it and refuse to spend anymore money at the dealership for them to charge me to play with my truck. I have a video of the gauge cluster going crazy, loosing stabilitrak, power steering, trailer wiring connectivity and transmission shifting all while pulling a 20,000 lb trailer. CRAZY does not define this!

Now the stabilitrak and traction control light is coming on loss of power and getting worse. It keeps reading code co202 co204 co206 which is injector issue code co 300 misfire code. I have replaced all spark plugs and caps all injectors bar and wires, still and issue and still the same codes This car is a piece of junk. I have been on the phone to GM and they are no help. I have had it to several mechanics and they can’t figure it out either. I see where the TPS sensor is a lot of the peoples problem I guess I’ll try that. The traction control module is in the hub assembly I’ve also heard this may be the issue. If any one has any other ideas would love to hear the solution.

They still cant figure out the problem. Its happened 8 Times and always a couple days after picking it up. And 3 of the 8 times it goes into Low power/Service stabiltrak mode I almost got smashed into. It always happens on the highway which you can keep driving while at a speed but once you slow to a stop at a stop sign/red light. Pedal to the floor, it wont move or inch into the middle of the road while cars are coming at you and takes about 15 seconds to kick in. Its come down to disconnecting the battery for 20 min and reconnecting to buy a few days before it happens again to get back and forth to work. I have put in a complaint with GM. Breaks my heart. I’ve been a loyal Chevy customer for 20 years and have loved all my Camaros, Now I terrified to drive and that I or someone else will get hurt because of this sudden Low Power/Stabilitrak mode happening almost every week.

My weekly stabiltrak/low power problem, bad gas mileage, jumping RPM’S, feeling like was forcing the car when accelerating is finally fixed after 3 months of hell. My 2015 Camaro is back to driving like a dream! I almost forgot how great it drives because it’s been so bad the last three months. Afraid to drive to work (long commute), carrying around a ratchet to disconnect the battery to reset computer so I can get home safely (buys a couple days resetting the computer(* that’s all the first 2 dealers did and they charged me), changing my commute route so that I know I would be able to get off highway or have a shoulder to safely pull over..etc.. So yes, 2 different dealers/ 4 trips and cost to look at it, a week rental, loss of summer weekend trips..etc..All they did was say they can’t replicate it after the computer has been reset and just band aiding it by resetting it. I was at my whit’s end! . So first after trying to figure out what to do since no one could help me, I finally thought of calling “ONSTAR” which I have. Not everyone has but it’s a good idea to have ,if you can get it.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                So it happened 3 days ago but this time I called Onstar and had them run a diagnostic right then and there as it was happening while I was driving in low power mode. These codes came up. (P0700) Engine-Transmission communication issues, (U0100)-2 explanations 1) antilock brake system problem & vehicle communication system is not performing as expected. Finally I thought we are getting somewhere. They went ahead and emailed me the info. I called GM the next day, I have an ongoing claim and let them know about the codes.. The GM rep was happy to hear said get it right into my dealer. So I called my 7 year dealer and I almost felt like they could care less, they said ok just bring the info in next week and we will see what comes up on their system and can’t give me a loaner/rental to get to work until they see something on their system. Which I was there already twice. I even said Onstar will explain if they called because they have the full diagnostic history in their system since they haven’t been able to figure it out. They really could care less. They even had the receptionist talk to me, they couldn’t even talk to me. They know what I have been going through! So I got upset and said forget it.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                So I called a dealer in NY as a hope that 3 times a charm. Well it worked! I called and was told to have it in the next morning and to bring everything. The invoices from the previous dealer visits, the print out from Onstar..etc….Mind you I brought the car to the NY dealer after I already reset the computer by disconnecting the battery which the other dealers were like I have to bring it while it happening. I kept saying I can’t get there safely when it happens and If I had it towed that means turning off the car which does a partial reset so they won’t have all the codes come up. That’s why it was a revolving door! But the NY dealer read the info I gave them and did another diagnostic- TWO hours later they called me and said it was my “ENGINE WIRING HARNESS” needed to be repaired. The only drawback is it was going to cost $700 because it wasn’t covered under warranty. But he said to me I suggest you better demand your money back from the other dealers because they didn’t know what they were doing and had a lot of nerve to charge me. I said fix it and ill deal with it and notify GM. I picked up my car at the end of the day and it’s great! Like It used to be. A great feeling .

He asked if it was ever in a collision. And yes, it was a year and half ago my car was smashed into full force by a large older SUV flying off an exit and went into my passenger side. They decided to fix because it was a newer car and I wasn’t at fault. Over $10,000 damage was done to the frontend passenger side. But the entire engine area under the hood was shifted to the left as well. It may have been overlooked and Its possible there was damage or rubbing of wires that could have happened over time and now came to a head. It may not be the reason but it’s something to look into. So now I will be contacting my insurance company as well. Hopefully GM will work with me to help with some reimbursement or my insurance company. But the most important thing is my car is fixed. So I suggest utilizing ONSTAR if you have it, but either way have your mechanic check your Engine wire harness if it can’t be figured out. Remember over time it can wear from corrosion/ weather or could just be faulty.

They “reset/updated” the computer and test-drove it 3 times. The next day it failed again. Taking it in again.

The first time, I had to be towed to the dealership where they said they could see error codes but couldn’t replicate the problem. Today it happened again, and after restarting the Car multiple times, I was finally able to go forward. I immediately took the car to the dealership and got a rental. This is very dangerous and I don’t trust driving the car again.

Gm says they can’t do anything for me unless the light is on. 9months pregnate and live in rural area. Stabilitrak issue has since happened at least 5 times. We have to reset by unplugging battery them truck runs fine. Happens again while were in town do luckily we drive to gm with light on. They reset and update computer. Two days later after I have my baby, stabilitrak comes on again on interstate wile husband driving with our three other children. Now, when light comes on we loose like all power to truck, it shakes like crazy and really isn’t driveable (to me). In a nutshell this has happened close to 10 times if not more. I’ve had onstar send me remote diagnostic for the engine light but gm won’t accept that for repair. We have to bring the truck ijn AS it’s messing up and with the randomness in which it happens and how far we live, I may have to just call a tow truck and spend unnessary no st for rental. So frustrated. Traded in a great h onda for a larger vehicle for expanding family and feels like were driving a death trap and now stuck 20 grand

I took it to the dealer and was told that the repair would be $265″ but when I asked what caused it, I was told by the manager “There are a lot of reasons why the light comes on” and, since I did not have the $265 at the time (was deeply in debt), I asked if I could drive it without making the problem worse until I could get it fixed and was told yes. There was a notice sent out in 2016 that there was a “factory recall” (which I thought was about that light) so I took it in but was told the recall was not for whatever was causing my engine light display and got no answer when I asked why. I was still told it would be $265 to fix and was ignored when I asked why a new car less than 2 years old would have the problem. On 11/1/2017 I took the 2014 Sonic in to the dealer for tire rotation (tires less than a year old), oil change, and the engine light fix, paying slightly more than $326. Two days later while driving at the 70 MPH speed limit on Highway 40, I made a lane change to get past a parked vehicle on the shoulder and the yellow “skid” symbol came on along with a now-flashing “engine” light, but the road was completely dry and the lane change was smooth and normal. I took the car in the next morning assuming whatever had been done two days earlier was the cause for this 3-year-old car, but was told my two front tires that the dealer’s mechanics had rotated and had “balanced” (the receipt said) were turned outward and that a “coil” was needed! Why was this not discovered at the time of the repair when I was told the rotated new tires were “balanced” or when they were “fixing” the engine light? I was changed an additional $575 for this “repair” that I believe was caused by them on the 11/1 “repair”! I would like to get my money back if this is a GM defect that causes the problem.

Had it looked at by 2 different dealers. Changed all 6 spark plugs, coil pack, throttle body, high pressure fuel pump, cleaned the PCV tubes and intake manifold sensors twice, replaced valve cover gasket with new design. Car is currently at the Chevy dealer now, same problem. We told them 6 weeks ago when the fuel pump was changed that we’d be back soon and asking for our money back. Haven’t changed the wheel speed sensors, brake pedal position sensor, or steering wheel angle sensor, all of which would make sense as the problem seems to occur after braking with the steering wheel turned. We’ll see what they come up with this time.

IF I am already doing maintenance then why do these mechanisms come on and create these issues while My car is still in motion- dangerous situation! I love the suv however this feature seems to be all about them GM getting money when they feel they want you to bring your car in this generating cash for them. OF course I don’t mind the warning or the notification that maintenance however to slow down my engine, ring bells and cause my engine light to come on is totally rediculous! So instead of a return buyer they will have a person getting rid of the vehicle as soon as possible. I don’t want a vehicle with maintenance micro managed along with my money!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beginning with odometer, to seat belt, to loss of power steering, to rear sliding window. At the time of purchase I opted to add “extended warranty” under the impression that it is an extension of the factory warranty, which is not (third party; Warranty Solutions) and more like an insurance as you have to pay deductible for every visit. Any who My A/C stopped working and Chevy certified service wants to charge me about 450.00 to replace a hose that is leaking and add a bracket to avoid from happening again. I said no but I did have them work on a recall involving loss of power steering, and now im getting a messege on cluster stating “stabilitrak” service. SMH CHEVY, you claim 100 years of dependability, yet you dont make the same product from 100 years ago.

I spent hundreds getting the “carbon build up” cleaned out and months later it is giving me the same issues. It wouldn’t turnover today and the same warning came up. Plus all my sensors are going off!

While driving last night the Stabilitrak light,check engine light, and warnings for reduced engine power. Brought to dealer $500 to replace throttle body. From what I’ve read on different forums this may happen again.

It normally goes off pretty quick, but it is happening more often now and I am out of my warranty. Has anyone been able to get anywhere with GM on this issue recently?

A few months ago the stability/traction ABS light starting coming on at random times. After turning the truck off then back on it would stay off for a day or two and sometimes even weeks. I would take it to the dealer to get it checked out and they would tell me “the light has to be on in order to diagnose it and I needed an appointment.”

I was stepping on the gas pedal when it stopped and I couldn’t even pull over to the side of the road, the wheels and steering felt stuck.

The dealer is not willing to fix as a GMC default. The years prior to 1012 have been fixed by GMC. I am about ready to go to the New stations in Chicago for help and really throw them under the bus for all of us having this problem on our vehicles that we pay so much for!

At the dealer they charge me also a C$195 for the diagnosis. They found that the EPS main was damage so they replace at cost of C$18 and i told that i have insurance and they said the warranty is not covered by the said problem which is under electrical issue. i don’t understand. every one here are disapponted about the issue of stabilitrack service and traction control. hopethey find a solution regarding the issue.

I replaced the battery with an Optima red top and the problem went away.

The error codes P0306 which means the #6 cylinder is having an issue along with the Stabilitrak error is gone! I changed the #6 coil and spark plug (spark plug was severely aged and damaged) and cleared the fault with the scanner code checker I bought for $65 from O’Reilly’s. All clear! Even the Stabilitrak error is gone. Nice!

I have been having the stabilitrak error messages, reduced power etc., for months now! I have had the throttle bottle replaced, wiring harness cleaned, grounds checked, alternator replaced, battery replaced, negative and positive cables replaced… has not fixed my problem! Called GM and “tried” to deal with CSRs and finally got to a “Sr. rep”.. what a joke! Requested the second Sr rep and she was worse than the first. I have read over and over about this! The dealership here is worthless but will happily take my money! They couldn’t even diagnose it while the truck was going NUTS! My problem is: 100% of the time, I apply the brakes first and then the doors lock and then all the “STAB LIGHTS, REDUCED POWER, CHECK ENGINE, ETC” come on. Has anyone had the doors to lock while applying the brakes before all the STABILITRAK MESSAGES??? Note: a very reputable GM dealer told me that they have changed the negative battery cable and it has taken care of several of these issues (of course it didn’t help mine). I don’t trust my Chevy dealer whatsoever, so Ive been forced to take it to a very good mechanic. Do I have any recourse here???? Ridiculous to have only 39,000 miles.

Just today leaving for my lunch break my stabilitrak message came on with the check engine light. 2016 Chevy Malibu 33, 000 on it not even 2 full years old. I immediately called my dealership and made an appointment for tomorrow! Fingers crossed

I called the dealership and took it in for service. They called and stated it needed a coil and plug. Will monitor this situation closely!

I went for my first oil change shortly before I reached 5000 miles. Next day at 530 pm my abs brake light came on as well as the stabila track light. While driving the car locked up and slammed my 17 year old son into a curb. GM will not take responsibility for damage and made me go through insurance to fix the damage. 3 weeks later still haven’t gotten my vehicle back. GM is forever off my list of cars and trucks for purchase.

About 10 minutes later my stabilitrak / and traction control lights lit up the dash. Now when I start the car its not there but not even 10 minutes into my commute its comes on and stays on.. I have read that you should shut the car off for 15 seconds and restart it and it should go away. Well that don’t work.

We got the car running but in February it started doing the same thing. The light comes on with the engine light and my car stalls and shakes unless its in neutral when stopped. It completely died in March and wouldnt start. Took it to the dealership and they “say” they had to replace the whole engine. They had my car for almost 3 weeks. Here I am less then two months later and the car is doing the same thing. It stalls while you are driving and its a very scary situation. I called the dealership and because my warranty was up when it got fixed they wont do anything. I called GM this morning and they are going to open a case to see what they can do. Something needs done about this known issue. I need a car and I cant trade it in because I have only had it 2 years and noones going to take it in this condition.

Stabilitrak light, rough idle, cylinder misfiring….replaced throttle body, other times told it’s just a computer issue and nothing is really wrong. Just this past week had all lifters replaced and two days later, back to square one with all the prior issues.

For over 2 years now I’ve had this problem with the ABS, service traction control, service Stabiltrak, parking brake, service park assist, etc. lights and messages going on and off randomly without rhyme or reason. Sometimes it’s driving down a smooth straight road, sometimes going around curves, sometimes on rough roads. It could happen for 3 hours straight (with the annoying dinging every 5 seconds from going on and off) on road trips, or every day for 2 weeks, or nothing for days!! Sometimes it’ll go into limp mode and won’t shift out of 1st gear with the RPM’s super high at 30mph, but if I turn the vehicle off and pull the key to let it fully power down and sit for 5 minutes, it’ll be fine when I start it back up. And if I get up past 65 mph, it shakes pretty bad (like spills drinks out of the cup holder) and I’ve checked the tire pressure 100 times and that’s not it. It’s thrown transmission codes so when I take it to have it checked, they just say ‘oh you need a new transmission’. I really don’t think it’s the trans. I’ve even taken a video of the dash lights freaking out because the shop can’t ‘duplicate’ the problem and they’re just like ‘hmmmmm’.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I’ve spent so much on repairs to fix what they thought could be causing it that I don’t wanna jump to a new trans if that’s not the actual problem. In 2 years I’ve…replaced the rear end, both front wheel hub assemblies (they said the cables came disconnected and that’s what was causing the dash lights to go on and off), U-joints, pads, rotors, calipers, rims, tires, tire pressure sensors (with new rims), ABS sensors, speed sensors, wiper transmission and motor (unrelated), new HD battery, oil lines, A/C line repairs and recharged (still doesn’t work), and more I’m forgetting I’m sure. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!!! Please help!!

This is an 2011 GMC Acadia FWD with 78,000 miles we bought used with warranty . I too was having problems with stabilitrac and ABS light On and the ding-ding-buzzer but no running problems . I think the problem started when we took it to the shop (Car-X) to have the a/c fixed . Of course it needed a whole new system, and front struts , front brakes and a leaking steering rack and power steering pump . All replaced by warranty ! Ok well fix it right yeah right ! Had taking it back several times for a/c not cooling . Invoice stated replaced compressor, condenser, exp. valve and acc. tank and o-rings . None of it was done I took pictures while it was up on the rack . But it was fixed . The only thing I had to pay for was the front brakes. OK I Did Notice Brake Fluid On Both Front Wheels So They Open The Bleed Screws In Pressed The Calipers Back In . And that’s why I was having this problem, low brake fluid . Warranty went out several months ago and I’m on SSI so I can’t afford a brand new vehicle . You saved me hundreds of dollars and I to was ready to trade this money pit in . Thanks So Much Sean !!!

This has happened to me about 6 or 7 times since I have owned the car and EVERY TIME THE DEALERSHIP (Bob’s Buick GMC in Milford) CANNOT FIND THE PROBLEM!!!

It has 138,000 miles. As like everyone else, I am getting all the usual lights and warnings. Stabili-trac, followed immediately by the Traction Control, Reduced engine power and hard shifting from the transmission and severe idling issues. It happens idling at a stop light or driving down the road at any speed from 0 to 80 mph. I have read many forums with these same issues and yet General Motors doesn’t seem to have fix for this except to say..” We can’t replicated the issue” Thousands of people are having this issue yet GM offers no recall or fix whatsoever. Many comments I have read were with people driving at high speeds and leaving them in or almost severe crash or accidents. Few have offered suggestions on what turned out to be a temporary fix. I have replaced the throttle body, brake peddle sensor, spark plugs and wires, shift sensor, some with temporary fix and then with-in two weeks I’m back to the same warnings and lights happening about every other day and up to many times a day. G.M. needs to own up to what is wrong with all these vehicles. It’s not just a few it is every vehicle they made, Buick, Cadillac, Chevy, GMC, Hummer, Pontiac and Saturn from years 2007 to present day. Many of the new ones with less than 5000 miles on them. I have owed GM vehicles since 1978 but I am done. They look great but looks don’t keep you safe or get you from point A to B. They are no longer dependable and honestly I don’t know why people continue to buy them. I know a handful of people that are having this same issue and have not reported because like me, we’ve done our research and G.M. doesn’t have a fix, so why bother throwing money at something there is no cure for. Kind of like cancer. So I’m done with GM vehicles. On another side note, another thing that GM refuses to fix, Cheaply made dashes on all the 2007 and newer Avalanches, Tahoe, Suburban, Escalade body type vehicles. My dash is broken in 4 places and rattles enough to drive anyone crazy. They refuse to issue a recall or fix these as well. Rant done, (Mic Drop) GM sucks.

Got into a head on collision on Christmas Eve. The raction control and vehicle stabilization were both knocked off line. Have to drive down Aurora blvd to ferry dock and then Bremerton to gig harbor with flashers going. Driving over 40 just set it ti shimming and rocking. They got it fixed and it’s doing it again.

With the stibilitrak! It is so very dangerous! I can’t imagine why the company GMC isn’t been held accountable. I have a service date for Monday. I’ll be back with the news. I’m going to also, try the brake fluid before I take it in. My issues when I drive it reduces speed, runs battery down, and shakes.

Had it checked out, they could NOT duplicate the errors. I have a 2010 GMC Yukon Denali. Today, truck started clacking and sputtering. I hope this is not the beginning of a long battle for us. So Can anyone tell me what the real fix is?! I’m pretty sure SOMEONE has fixed the problem?!

Many of the controll lights come on and off without reason. Also once i start the vehicle seems 4×4 is on and does not accelerate i have to manually turn it off each time. Onceni do manually turn it off the i hear a loud switching/clicking sound for a good 5-10 minutes,during that time my vehicle feels like it pulls and accelleration dosent kick in. It difficult at time when crossing in to traffic since the vihicle has trouble acclerating i fearful of a crash with vehicle pulling behind me. Seems to be no answers when talking to my local machanic. This is very frustrating i was excited about my cadillac because i thought it was not only beautiful but i thought it would be reliable. Upset im having issues. Please contact me via email if you have any suggestions. Thank you. Rosa.

About a month ago my cruise control hung up at 68mph…. now the engine light stating Stabilitrack and traction control came on and the transmission would not not shift correctly and then reduced engine power to 35mph. Dealer stated that it was a bad transmission computer and would need to be replaced. $850.00. I have not gotten it back yet but praying this is the end of it…

I have reached out to the attorney general they have suggested to contact a lawyer. Have been working with GM they offered 1500.00 loyalty cash as the car sits at the dealership unfixed pretty much since January 2018. Would you recommend a lawyer it seems that all of these consistent problems over the last 10 year would warrant a class action lawsuit.

Just came from dealer. He told me my Stabili Trak was out. Replacement is going to cost me 350.00. I have 64000 miles on this vehicle and feel like factory warranty should cover it. I will never buy another GMC.

Been to Dealership for over a week and a few other side mechanics a few times, they all saw it happen but dont know what it is. Said it was possible TCM failure but cant daignous it and they dont know what to do.

I went to the link above and filed a complaint with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is the government agency that you need to go to and register your complaint. The more complaints the better chance we have at getting something done about this. This is a total safety issue that GM could care less about . There was nothing about this on the NHTSA website that I could see, only something about airbags. They will probably post my complaint to encourage others to register theirs as well. Please go to this website and submit your complaint in detail, pictures, receipts from repairs, etc. They want whatever you have regarding this. I am SHOCKED that nothing has been done about this bc it looks like this has been happening for years. Just remember we are the consumer and there are plenty of agencies and laws that protect us! I have had great success going straight to the appropriate agency (i.e. CFPB-Consumer Financial Protection Bureau-they helped me with inaccuracies on my credit report and Equifax was fined a ton of money because of course I was not the only one with inaccuracies) and that agencies job is to protect the consumer so don’t be afraid to go there and complain. Hope this helps! Don’t forget to go to the website!

On the maiden voyage home, my girlfriend said the check engine light came on as did the Stabiltrak light. She said the vehicle intermittently died out and lost all power. The wrench (service engine) light came on and she had no power. We pulled over and I shut the car off. When started back up, on the check engine light was on and it seemed to run fine. About 50 miles later, it did the same thing to me. The vehicle only has 39000 miles on it with no reported accident from Florida or Virginia.

Stopped at a light and hit the gas pedal and the engine revved like normal but it felt like the transmission was slipping bad. Luckily close to home and had to go down hill I limped it back home being gentle it as to not hurt anything more than I had to. Goes into gear but doesn’t like it…shut it off and came out a few hours later and everything is normal again. I have been a loyal Chevy person my entire life…48 now. If this keeps happening it may be my last.

I had it for less than 10,000 miles and the stabiltrak and traction control came on with the check engine light blinking. I took it to the dealership and after going over it they said that one of my lifters in number 6 cylinder was bad, they replaced all eight. they wanted around $4,000 to fix it and I fought with them because the engine had less than 100,000 miles on it…I contacted GM customer service and got it down to just lunder $3000. now less than 6 months later it has done it again…. I will be taking it in to the dealership Monday and I can’t wait to see what they say this time….I am retired 60 year old and have always bought GM. I have a 2001 GMC 2500 HD with over 300,000 miles on it at home. If they don’t take care of me this time and I mean good I will never buy another GM product…I found out it’s the engine they are using but GM doesn’t want to admit its a piece of junk…..

After only a few weeks the engine light, traction control and stabilitrak light came on. Low engine power, sometimes not wanting to start and sudden over heating only a few miles in. Engine code was misfire. I changed the spark plugs. Same issues continued. Called the car lot I bought it from and they said I bought it as is even though they didn’t label or list the car as such. After reviewing by paperwork I found the AS IS paper. They agreed to fix the issue since I just bought the car. I get the car back a couple days later and they said it was the thermostat which they replaced and that there was no stabilitrak lights or issues when they had the car. A month goes by with no issues. Then randomly started over heating again. They asked me to drive the car in but I’m an hour away in another town and the car won’t make our that far without shutting off. They recommend I pay to have it towed to them and they can look at it but they couldn’t guarantee how long I’d be without a car so I didn’t take it in. I have to add water every 1-2 weeks but they said no leaks have been found. Will run fine for a few weeks then suddenly over heat and just shut off. I notice that the over heating and stabilitrak issues happen at the same time. Maybe not related.. I don’t know. But I’m so fed up with the constant anxiety while driving, working if in going to be stranded with my kids that I’m ready to just ask the bank to come get the piece of crap and deal with a voluntary repossession. I cant afford to pay my car payments and fix the car. It’s been a problem from the beginning. Unfortunately my poor credit is why I ended up at that lot because they “could get anyone in a car” and I was told that was the only car they could approve me for.

Just drove 140 from Eastern Shore and all of the sudden my dash board looked like a Christmas Tree. Truck was barely driveable. Nothing wanted to work. Limped home and turned truck off..well truck still thought it was on. Could not unlock any rear doors, lights would not go off. We live almost next to the Chevy dealer. Can’t wait to hear about this!!!

It also sounds like a pop that you hear when there is a short in a wire. Today I went to the gas station at lunch and when I came back out to my car, it wouldn’t start. I turned the key and nothing, it wouldn’t even give me my key back. I opened the hood and wiggled the battery cables (not loose), and shut the hood. The car still didn’t start, but I got my key back, got a ride back to work and went back later to see if it would start. Had to get a jump, and we also wiggled, pulled out, and blew on a few fuses. Needless to say it started and I made it home. Would it be safe to say that maybe a low or worn out battery may cause the Stabilitrak to flicker like it has been?

This has happened before this year. Thought it was fixed, but here we go again. GMC is NOT going to ever fix this problem. This has been going on for years now with their vehicles. As a woman, I stopped going to them for repairs, because tg dr y like to lie, rob you blind and dont fix NOTHING.

Stabiltrak light comes on states traction is off feels like I’m losing power. Truck doesn’t drive right after that. This has been happening for about a week now. Haven’t taken it in yet because I know I’ll be charged an arm and a leg especially now reading these comments. Once I turn the truck off the indicator light goes away but comes on maybe a day or two later. I would like to know what the issue is though to rule out something major.

Was driving on the road and all of a suddon loss power and service stabilitrak, service traction control and eng light came on. I shut it down for bout 5 minutes and started back up and it went away, i drove but the same repeated shortly after i moved. I also noticed that it doesnt show what gear i was in. Power was at a total loss, even when parked, you cant rev up the engine. Any help would be appreciated before i start forkn over money.

Turned out that combustion gas was blowing past the electrode on the #6 spark plug, and dislodging the plug-wire boot enough to break contact with the plug. Not apparent on quick visual inspection. Veteran mechanic with diagnostic scope located it. Reason why others are probably experiencing this when performing particular driving maneuvers is that the inertial forces are probably causing the already partially dislodged plug-boot to shift, and break contact with the plug. When the PCM detectes an engine misfire, it starts shutting down other systems it controls. Including good ol’ Stabilitrak. Re-seat your spark-plug wires when this happens. Better yet, replace the plugs and the wires.

After a day of driving it the stabilitrack check engine light started coming on and when i stop the car tries to stall. We bought this car from a dealership we thought we could trust and we have bought a house through them as well. This is our first purchase ever on a car and it looks like we were sold a lemon!

Today I had a Stabilitrak, Traction Control, and Reduced Power messages on my console. I found a youtube video where someone with the identical problem replaced the gas pedal. The problem went away. The newer cars don’t have throttle cables connected to the gas pedals. The pedals have an electrical connector. I’m not sure if the sensor is in the gas pedal connector. Regardless, the mechanism is now electrical. By the way, my Cruze has less than 40k miles so l highly doubt that the throttle body would need cleaning.

It has been in and out of the shop for the engine light being on about 4 times, Finally the service department cleaned my injectors which tool care the problem for about 3 weeks then back into the shop again finding out that I needed 3 new injectors because the old ones was carboned up. Thank god for after market warranty or I would of had a nice bill to pay. Now its probably been month since I had that done, I’ve got another problem where it feels like the engine is missing little and I had a loss for power, Then I noticed that my traction light came on and the engine light was blinking, Now on top of that is say service stablitrak . Hopefully the warranty covers this problem because I have 2 more years of service warranty so . I just am so tired of going to the service shop all the time. I will never buy another gm product !

I said it was some tapping also. They told me they couldn’t hear tapping and the light was off. I got in the car and went down the road the light pops back on. So I took in to another Chevy dealer, told them what was going on. They kept my car a couple days, but told me that it was a old part that was on the car causing the issue! I said old part, I bought this car brand new, story changed and said my fuel system needs to be cleaned! I asked was it covered under the warranty and they said no. I couldn’t understand why and I still had some warranty. Then on top of that they dropped something on top of my car knocking the color off the grill and the hood. Told me they would run the cameras and never got back with me. Then I just told the service guy I didn’t trust them and felt they were lying to me. He got upset and told me he know his job and he knows what he is doing and for me to cal him out on his job I had him messed up. And I snapped back. My stabilitrak and engine still comes on. I was driving and turned the air conditioner on and soon as I did the stabilitrak and engine light comes on and car acts like it don’t want to move until I turn the air off! I don’t know what this could be. I have always had Chevrolet’s but now I think it’s time to buy another brand of car. I don’t want to lose my child’s lor my life over a faulty part with my car. I hate Chevrolet now because their business is horrible as well.

In January 2019. The stabiltrack starting coming on I guess about 2 months ago. It has stalled on me a few times in traffic. My tire pressure light is on even though my tires are fine. Today once again it stalled and now my check engine light is on. I took it back to the place I bought it from, they tell me it needs to go to a Chevy dealership ( bought from Nissan dealership). But they are telling me I have to pay for a diagnostic. I shouldn’t have to pay for that. It’s going to cause a accident. I’m lost on what to do. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

In May, the Stabilitrak came on several times and it felt like I was losing power. Before I could get to the dealer, the truck started shaking and lost most of it’s power. I could only do about 40-45 mph. I was close to home and managed to get it there. The next day I had it towed to the dealer. The Engine Control Module was bad so I had it replaced. This week, it started running rough again. Yesterday, as I made a turn, the Stabilitrak came on again, my truck went on, then off, then on, then off – cycling like that about 6 times. I parked it, ran my errand and got in the truck and restarted it. It ran, but seemed “off” – meaning not normal. Today it was running a little rough…so I guess it will be back to the dealer for me. I’m really not liking my truck much right now. I do have to say that I purchased my Sierra used with about 32K miles. The problems didn’t start until about 95K miles. It has 99K on it now.

ALL of these lights came on simultaneously today while I was driving. RPM’s were erratic and the vehicle was jerking and felt like it would stall at any moment/ had severe difficulty accelerating. Drove it STRAIGHT to the dealership. I have an extended warranty that was purchased with the vehicle 1.5 years ago so I’m hoping they get this resolved now before I lose my warranty coverage. In the last 1.5 years of ownership this SUV has needed ball joints, sway bars, power steering pump, power steering lines, steering rack and pinion, and a new alternator (just done by the dealership less than a month ago). I’m not gonna lie, I’ve always owned GM vehicles but this one is testing my patience.

Where do I turn, what should I do, I’ve been asking for help for 3 years from the dealer and now they wont help and say there is no problem, they just are taking the no liability stance with me and anyone else. There are hundreds of people having this same problem and the dealerships just won’t help!!!

It was upfitted when I purchased it from the dealership and the dealer added an alarm, remote start, back up camera, power door locks and power windows. Now, I continue to receive “Service Stabilitrak” warnings and traction lights on the dash, usually in the morning. I’ve taken it to the dealership twice. The first time, they said it was a known issue with a dirty sensor in the steering. Said they cleaned it and it should be resolved. It wasn’t, obviously. Second time it took it in, the dealership blamed it on the wires that were spliced into the ignition for the remote start (installed at a Chevy Dealership) and told me that it voided the warranty. I’m taking it in again tomorrow. Will see what happens.

But fix the problem with the stability track. I’ll never own another GMC Again….

Silv. It is having the same exact issues with the stabilitrack light. I saw a video on YouTube that a sensor has to be replaced to fix the problem. I call the dealer to order that part but the guy told me they dont make it anymore. That’s weird.

But recently the stabili teak came on my ABS is off, and all wheel drive off. I took it to dealer and they said No codes came up. WTH but it says service soon! Crazy. Have an appointment asked if it’s safe to drive said it’s probably a sensor. But my brakes now make a noise. Anyone who has terrain have this problem? Thanks for this info.

I have been having problems with my Stabitrak turning off, which then starts a domino effect of problems. It happes at least 2 a year. I have had the my truck for almost 8 years. I would really like to speak to a lemon law lawyer.

It’s extremely dangerous and has almost caused several wrecks if I wasn’t as good at controlling it as I am. GM knows the issue and is refusing to recall the issue instead says hey this is a problem it’s recommended you fix it. And it’s going to cost over $700 for the fix.

It almost sounded like something wrong in the Transmission. Had to leave car at Dealer for 3 days to get this issue resolved. Now just a couple months later check engine light comes on, had a quick read with my Scanner and code displayed is U0293. Called Buick Dealer and could not get an appointment until a week later, so i’m paying for a car that i cannot drive sort of frustrating. Anywho, did drive the car to and from work the other day, approx 120 mile round trip. On my return home i watched literally every light possible illuminate and go off, service stabilitrac, check engine is constant, watched my dash reset multiple times, it was sorta like christmas. Lucky me car is still under warranty. If they can fix i’m off to trade irregardless of the monetary hit. I purchased this car to get me back and forth to work not sit at a dealer. I doubt i’ll be keeping long enough to experience other issues. This car has never been wrecked either. It just saddens me that GM builds a car that customers cannot drive. Think i’ll go back to older cars that don’t have all the tech back to basics so to speak.

In addition to fixing things like the a new timing chain, new engine, sensors, transmission lines now it’s not going into reverse nor taking gears not going past the 20 saying fix traction control and stebliek system needs fixing , I have had the car dangerously break-down on me 3 times now in the last 3months. I get the Stabilitrack/traction control/ engine power reduced messages. Then I lose speed. This has happened to me on a highway going 65 MPH, and suddenly I’m going 25 MPH and cars are swerving all over to avoid me. My 4month old and 5year olds were in the car. The other times, I was on 40MPG city roads, not exactly a lot safer.

Finally I have an appointment at the dealership- once again after just getting my car back thursday 9/2019 costing me 300 dollars now has to go back in with 125 a hour charge to see what’s wrong But now, it’s just too dangerous. I am stunned that GM hasn’t recalled on this issue…maybe they’re waiting for a body count. But I’m a single mom and make less then $30k per year. Chevy needs to make this right and make this safe for me, and I just can’t/won’t pay for it. For crying out loud, they’ve already milked me with the overpriced piece of garbage and the other repairs. And you can’t even register for this site without watching a commercial for the captia. They were bailed out with my tax dollars, and they are making money hand over fist, and by God they better make this right. If anybody has suggestions, please advise. help me I’m having nervous break downs due to these car issues please someone help thanks Jasmyn

NO reason to have a 5-digit car take up this much time and $$$, and be this unsafe, at all, ever, especially without a recall. PEOPLE, you’ve built vehicles for YEARS. What say we FIND a SYSTEM that WORKS and STAY with it??? Chevy, You have built cars without stability track TPS problems!!!! GO BACK to the GOOD ones and STAY there, PLS. NOT to do so, implies to me, that you are trying to keep your dealerships busy/$$$ rolling in. Deceitful.

For me it was mainly triggered when I used signals, or pressed the breaks. Took it to my local GMC dealership, explained what was happening and how to recreate. It usually took about half hour before the error started happening.

No problems since, and I have put in a couple of long drives since they fixed it.

I have only had the vehicle 4 months and have had several issues. I noticed it only happens when it rains enough to where water is on the ground to kick back up, or when i take it through the car wash. When those happen I get reduced engine power and Traction control braking and stability error codes P00CA and C0242. I have taken it to the dealer at least 3 times and they have not been able to even replicate the issue. Since then I have reached out to the dealer i purchased from, and they are trying to help but not nearly enough considering i purchased 4 months ago and have 3rd party coverage through ally at any GMC dealer in the country. Usually when this happens those error codes pop on and i pull to the side of the road for about 2 hours till dry. Once dry I am able to drive again with no issues. So basically i purchased a beautiful truck that cant get wet. I am giving them a little more time to help where i purchased as it’s only been a week but. May look further soon.

I took it into the dealership just about a month ago for new tires and servicing. Since then the warning for the stabilitrak needs servicing keeps coming on. I just about drove off the highway twice. I thought I had a flat front left tire.

It currently has 26,000 miles. Last weekend the service StabiliTrak track light started flashing on and off and would lose power. I barely made it home. It got so bad, Service StabiliTrak and check engine light came on and stayed on and the car revved like it was in neutral. Luckily I was able to coast into a lot on the side of the highway. The car wouldn’t go. I turned it off and back on and was able to “limp” home. I called the dealership I bought it from and spoke to the salesman that sold it to me. He was very helpful and said not to worry because my car is still under manufacturer’s warranty. Unfortunately service dept was closed but he emailed them and told me to have car there 8 am monday morning and they would put me in a loaner. Monday morning no check engine light and service StabiliTrak light was off. Lady in service dept called and said they were unable to duplicate problem. I went to pick up the car and explained to the lady that I was very worried because I drive the car daily on the interstate to work in Louisville. She told me well hope that it happens while you are local and not on the interstate

She told me well hope that it happens while you are local and not on the interstate. I drove the car to Louisville and back all week and today (4 days later) it happened again and thankfully I was local and my daughter was with me and able to video what it was doing while I was driving. I immediately drove it to the dealership and the same lady I dealt with on Monday. i showed her the video and she told me that there was nothing they could do if the check engine light wasn’t on and they couldn’t just guess. I told her I didnt want them to guess I wanted it fixed because it is NOT safe to drive! One of her co-workers saw the video and said oh my it looks like it’s losing communication and power because the rpm and speedometer would fluctuate and bottom out. She eventually went and got the tech that looked at it on Monday. When I showed him the video he said this car is not safe for her to drive get her a loaner. He was able to pull a full page of codes. He told me he would get it figured out. I am praying that he does. I also called GM and of course I was told they have no recall or known issues with GM vehicles having stability track issues.

At 60,000 miles, right when I purchased the vehicle, while on the highway the reduced power mode light came on and the stabilitrack shut off and the car completely died. I sat on the side of the highway in below zero temps for 2 hours waiting for a tow. The GMC dealership spent 2 weeks trying to rebuild the engine under warranty, claiming it was a computer malfunction that caused a timing issue that damaged the engine. A few months later, the EXACT SAME ISSUES occurred, and the dealership this time blamed it on a timing belt. Again, whole engine rebuild under warranty. A year later, I bring the Terrain to another GMC dealership for a routine oil change, and they tell me it appears to be victim to the excessive oil consumption issue. Why the original dealership never mentioned that was mind-bending to me, but this dealership opened the investigation into proving there was an issue. Four months later, the dealership confirms the oil consumption is excessive and fights to have GMC corporate pay for the repairs since I am now out of warranty. After a lot of back and forth, GMC corporate does cover almost all the cost and the repair is done.

Once while towing a trailer and twice under normal high speed driving. All 3 times it reset or cleared after restarting the engine.

In the last month the vehicle has been to the GMC dealer numerous times for the Stabilitrak warning and the entire system going off line. No gauges, no steering as well as a host of other issues. It started a week before I took the truck in for the recall on the brake module update. I had told the service writer of the issue and he never mentioned to bring it in or do the checks now. I told him I’d bring it in if it went off line again. So I did the following week. It was diagnosed a a bad negative battery cable. On parts due to the strike. When they called to let meknow the parts were in, I also took a battery harness assembly to replace what was in the truck.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      They said it was fixed and so I took it home but 2 miles from the dealership, the system went down again. So over the last few weeks it was back and forth and they actually kept it for two days but they said they couldn’t replicate the issue? so what I say- – -on one fo my last rips to them, I took a service bulletin that I had obtained from the GM web site that addresses all of the issues with my truck. That bulletin is PIT5405C. They never looked at it as the truck system went off on the way home AGAIN! So yesterday,10/14/19, because I feel like I’ve been blown off, I called customer support at GMC and lodged a complaint as the truck being unsafe due to its steering and other safety issues. Now we will see where this goes. What a waste of a beautiful ruck!

Put in shop because no power to gas peddle. Thank God I wasn’t but just right down the road from home and was able to hobble home. 1st dealership kept it for two weeks said it was transmission. Fixed a sensor and broken ring. Drove vehicle around town no problems. Me and sister took a trip to Louisiana vehicle started off having sluggish problems, then jerking and like it was coughing. Lost power to gas peddle. Could push peddle to floor and would affect the engine at all. Pulled off of I interstate and set for a spell. Decided to move to on/off ramp to be safer. Cranked vehicle and hobbled to off ramp and lost power from 70 mph to 20 mph just as I was existing off of interstate. The Lord was with me because I could of been ran over by an 18 wheeler barrowing down on me. Vehicle broke down between Tuscaloosa and Meridian MS. Had it towed to dealership in Meridian . Cars been there two weeks with them saying it was a clogged catalytic converter. GM main office has been great working with me and the dealership getting the problem fixed. I only have 50,320 mile in vehicle. I work my vehicle fixed where I want have to worry about breaking down somewhere by myself or getting into an accident because of the decrease in power. So far I have been pleased with dealership and GM for working to get the problem corrected. If you are having same issue open up a case with main office of GM.

They said they had “redone the heads and did a top engine rebuild” which they could have and now a few months later maybe 4K miles and driving down freeway service stabilitrack and traction control as well as check engine light flickering and truck idling hard and knocking. Sad to say have always been Chevy everything but now I’m thinking Ford hope this helps and take it into justice and find your attorney

Not only does this mean the stability control system isn’t working but the speed of the vehicle was reduced to 10 mph very quickly with no control over it. It happened while traveling along a road that happened to have a wide shoulder to pull over on to. If this incident would have happened on the interstate highway, this could have very well ended up in an accident since there was no control over the fast reducing speed of the vehicle. Along with and outside this incident, here has been notice of a jerky transmission.

I have had an accident from the stability track problem. I have now been to the shop 4 times since the accident and they can not duplicate. I went on youtube and found a fix, I thought, but it happened again today. Car barely wants to run. I think I am done with Chevrolet

While driving to work the truck completely shut down while flashing the Service Stabiltrak light. Luckily I put it in neutral and was able to restart. Once on the highway, the Service Stabiltrak light came on two more times, powering off the radio and ac but did not shut down the motor this time. Took it to the dealer and they told me they ran diagnostics and no issues.

The stabilitrak, traction control, and ABS lights all came on while hauling a camper. Now the lights are back on and the panel says to service Stabilitrak and Traction control. If so many people are having this issue, it sounds to me like a class action lawsuit needs to happen to get GMs attention.

The stabilitrak, traction control, and ABS lights all came on sporadically. I have taken the car to two dealers in YC – Major World and Lasorsa Chevrolet and neither service department can figure out what’s going on. I have already spent money on a new battery, left battery cable, water pump and still this problem. Last week the emission system came on and also a problem with po171. not sure why there seem to be so many things going on.The stabilitrak, traction control, and ABS lights continue to be an issue unresolved. There should be a GM recall on this issue.

This happens intermittently while driving and when it starts to happen the vehicle will downshift to reduce speed and the transmission will not shift causing the vehicle to be extremely jerky and hard to handle.

I have similar issues with the stabilitrac off and service stabilitrac also service traction control. I got rid of the trac control issue when the check engine light came on with it and put me in limp mode. I unplugged the Mass air flow sensor and it took my car out of limp mode. Check engine light cleared but still have the other 3 issues from above. It also smells like my car is running lean now. I replaced the engine last year because it threw a rod but my cars mileage on the dash is at 140k. Not sure where to start and looked it up online and I saw this page. I also figured out these 3.6L v6 engines always have issues. If you have any advice it would be great. Thank you for your time.

They could not figure out what was wrong with it and even kept it for a couple weeks to see if they can get it to do the same thing it did to me but it didn’t. I think I lost my life by my vehicle shutting down on me on the interstate and on the bypass.

My engine light is coming on and my stabili track light came on saying loosing power. Stability control failure causing instant lose of power on the freeway. Which was not a fun moment as i almost got nailed 3 times getting to the side of the road. Please can I get your options and opinions?

Thanks for sharing your story. Today I was on the way home and I turned a corner and that Stability Track message popped up and check engine light went on as well as the engine was slowed down. I had no idea what was happening. I turned off air, radio, and cracked windows. I was able to drive back home but slowly. Then I parked car. I was about a mile from home. I turned car off. I waited like 15 mins and then the message left but I looked up on YT and one guy said to check the gas cap. I went to check my gas cap and of course it was not locked. That happened to me with my Ford Taurus once years ago. But my gas cap lockable. The one guy stated that there is a some sort of system in place that causes car to do that and 1st check gas cap make sure it was on tight. I did that and found mine was not on there good not even locked. But in anycase I’m going to schedule a GMC Service appt. I just got oil change yesterday. Hopefully this can get resolved I have 35,000 miles it is 2017

I really love the car and I hope that this can get resolved. I am thankful that we can all share story and info because I first needed to see what others said and if it happened to anyone else. It takes like a MONTh to get an appointment at the local GMC dealerships here Plus many of them act like since the car shortage they want to FIX your car at high rates. Anyway, thanks for sharing and to listening to my story.

This needs to be looked into now. as of now our truck sits because of the cost of repairs needed and the safety issue of just driving it.
