Stability Engaged?? My stability reduced warning has been popping up for awhile in my 97 STS, but today, while driving, it popped up Stability Engaged and made my car slow WAY down as if I was braking pretty hard and my check engine soon light came on at the same time. What could this be...any suggestions???

2000 cadillac sts that displays a"service stability" warning light and then breaks locked without touching the breaks


change the stability sensor or and check all the brake system, because when you have a problem with the brakes they automatically lock the car to avoid a crash. could be any other sensor or the pads or anything running abnormal in the brake system.

What's your problem?my 2002 cadillac deville pulls back while driving and the dash board lights up with stability system engaged


You have Malfunction Indicator Lamp lite on your dash,
I assume for some time & ask if you have checked for the
ABS Braking System Codes,since the Stability Light is on

I will assume you have no owners manual & haven't given
much thought to going to a repair shop within a couple of days
of any vehicle issue

Need the codes,then have a shop diagnose that systems problems

Could be a Wheel Speed Sensor,or not

What is the stability system of the car intended to do and why is it a problem if the warning light about the stability system is on?


The stability system of the vehicle is used to stabilize the vehicle in Turns. And say if you were driving and had to veer off the side becuase a car was stopped or somthing, as oppose to you loosing control it helps you maintain control of the vehicle.

The warning light is a problem with the stability system, could be a number of things. Thats somthing you dont wanna mess with on your own.

My 2006 Chevy Tahoe displayed the Reduced Engine power and stability control system turned off. Drove the vehicle home at reduced power never. Temp OK, Battery gage read lower than the normal +14V, Oil...


the post that everybody refuse to read or acknowledge is the first simple instruction
when ever there is a problem , have the fault codes read first
it is free at autozone and other parts shops
then knowing what the problem is you can have it fixed at an accredited service center for less money that fixing what is not faulty costs

Stability system engaged wtf?


This system usually kicks on when it thinks the wheels are spinning out. Thus...it slows the wheels to regain control. It can also happen in the rain when the car senses it is hydroplaning. If none of these things are possible, it's probably a broken sensor or something.
