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.

What does it mean when my 2008 trailblazer LT stabilitrac service light comes on?

Service Stability System Message The message center displays the service stability system message when any one of many VSES-disabling DTCs is set. The EBCM sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting this display.
It means there is a problem an till you get it fixed the stability control system is disabled ! ( EBCM ) electronic brake control module Has detected a problem an set a DTC - diagnostic trouble code in it's memory an had the message displayed !
Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES)
The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) provides added stability during aggressive maneuvers. Yaw rate is the rate of rotation about the vehicle's vertical axis. The VSES is activated when the electronic brake control module (EBCM) determines that the desired yaw rate does not match the actual yaw rate as measured by the yaw rate sensor.
The desired yaw rate is calculated by the EBCM using, primarily, the following inputs.
The position of the steering wheel

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.

You need to have the system scanned, the traction & stabilty control receive thier input from the wheel sensors. This also is linked to the anti-lock brake system.
