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.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This problem is common on all honda cars. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you clean the IACV (idle air control valve) by using a carburetor cleaner. The IACV has strainer and mostly clogged by dirt. If it's blocked the engine may stall and may have irregularities on acceleration.

The IACV is located on the throttle body secured by two bolts. You will need to remove the connector first before removal.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

The Service Stabilty messge hae been coming on. Aslo the check engine light comes on and stays on for long time. What is the problem

If you take your vehicle to a Automotive Parts Store they will scan the on board computer ( For Free ) and reteive any stored codes in the computer. Make sure they give you the list of codes. Then come back to this site with the codes and problems and I or someone will assist you. The computer commands the check engine light on when it sets a diagnostic truoble code and it will remain on untill all repairs are made.

I have the same problem on my 1998 XK8

Seek the website for Dan Jensen's article on repairing the ABS Electronic control board (seems a solder joint becomes intermittent). This is a common trouble in XK8s... mine needed to be replaced recently too....
