Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille
Better check your Alternator. I just replaced mine in my Deville Concours (99), as the battery was dying the stability system message came across. Then when THAT Alternator went out (yea, 4 months later under warranty thank God) I got the same message on the way home that day. I will tell you, if you plan to do it yourself like I did ~ It is a SOB to change. No ifs, ands or buts. Get a halfway decent mechanic to do it unless you want to fight with it for 3 days. Oh - it comes out a trap door at the bottom of the car in the front. You have to unbolt that plate once you get the 4 or 5 huge bolts out of the Alternator...Assuming THAT is your problem. Note, the bolt in the center does not come out and it is the worst one to get to. Take the radiator fan out so you can reach everything. Have I scared you enough.. I hope so. It only took me a week and half to get mine OUT, fixed and BACK in.

Tips for a great answer:
The speed of the vehicle
The lateral, or sideways acceleration of the vehicle
The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. When a yaw rate error is detected, the EBCM attempts to correct the vehicle's yaw motion by applying brake pressure to one or more of the wheels. The amount of brake pressure which is applied varies, depending on the correction required. The engine torque may be reduced also, if it is necessary to slow the vehicle while maintaining stability.
VSES activations generally occur in turns during aggressive driving. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal may pulsate. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation than during ABS activation.
