I had the same problem...but I found out that the dealer had rotated incorrectly the tires.
Front and back are different sizes and if a rotation is performent front to rear, you may get a stability light warning.
I corrected my tires and the warning went a way.

this is a warning that there is a problem with the electronic traction control system, a part or circuit has failed, u will need to have the dealer test the system for a trouble code that will be stored in the control modules memory that will indicate were to look for the defective part, it will most likely be a wheel speed sensor, until the system light is out it is disabled.

Testimonial: "Thanks, solves the mystery"
traction engaged means that one of the wheels appears to be slipping to the ABS/ Traction control module. It then engages the brake on the wheel that seems to be 'slipping' or spinning faster than the other wheel.
ABS/Traction control module either is getting faulty information from the wheel speed sensors, or the ABS/Traction control module itself is bad.
May have to replace the rear speed sensor(s) on the right and/or left sides. Check your parts department for the sensors which sometimes bolt on if it has heavy duty suspension J55 which is rare.
If you have disc brakes on the back then it may take a hub assembly to be replaced which has the wheel speed sensor pressed onto the hub assembly and plugs into the harness in the back.
I would have the 99 Eldorado with 36k scanned with an ABS Brakescan Tool such as one made by Actron which sells for $99 plus s/h from Amazon.com.
The Actron ABS Brakescan tool covers 1996 up to 2005 domestic automobiles, such as Cadillac, GM, Ford, and Chrysler and many related domestic makes.
This neat little tool will tell you in English terms which subsystem is giving you trouble on this Eldorado.
Good luck on this repair.
