Question about 2008 Chevrolet Equinox

Open Question

2008 chevy equinox stabilitrak, parking brake, and abs lights are on

Tried to start the car, and nothing happened. After trying to get numerous jumps because we figured the battery was dead and still nothing. Went to Walmart and purchased a new battery and installed it and the truck started right up. But now the stabilitrak, parking brake, and abs lights are all on. We unhooked the negative cable to the battery and waited 10 minutes and then hooked it back up and all the lights are still on. Please help because I can not afford to take the truck to the dealership again.

At first blush, sounds like corrosion on the battery cables either at the battery or at the other end at the alternator or starter. There are several sprays at the auto parts store that will clear the corrosion but the best way is to remove the cables and clean both the cable ends and the posts. Once you're able to rule out the cables/connections having the charging system checked would be next point of order but its more likely to be the cables. A car that won't run on it's own isn't getting enough power from the alternator so I'd check the negative cable first.

A low voltage issue will cause all these symptoms. You should have the alternator checked as well as the battery. Good Luck

SOURCE: Battery being drained and low beam light not working

check your alternator to make sure it is putting sufficient charge to charge the battery. he proper thest would be to take it to a parts store and have them tell you the voltage. a get by test would be to start the carnd disconnect the battery and see how long the car runs. IF it dies then your alternator is bad.

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

Usually a sign of something draining the battery.
The machine test probably showed the battery could hold a charge and the alternator was charging the battery.
You may need to have someone check for a power drain.
When the key switch is off, there may be a weak short to ground or a relay or component that is using power.

Stabilitrak and ABS lights come on but car is running fine


Nope, but take it in. Brake problems are nothing to fool with They'll probabl tell you it's the ABS ECU. Not a cheap item.. However, it only affects the ABS system, not the brakes itself.

My 2008 Chevy Equinox intermittently gives me messages that say "service stabilitrak" and "stabilitrak off." Sometimes I can drive it for a coupld of days with the stabilitrak working...


If you get an ABS (anti lock brake system) light on as well, you probably have a bad front wheel bearing (the ABS wheel speed sensor is built-in). Check the harnesses going to the sensors first, they may be damaged from turning. If no ABS light accompanying the Stabilitrak message, then you will need to get it scanned for a diagnostic code to further evaluate.

Lost all electric power in car. Drove it 15 miles parked and 1 hour later nothing. The remote door unlock did not work and the dome light did not come on after manually opening. Tried to jump no luck. any...


This happened to me two weeks ago, i tried to jump it and nothing, sor I repalced the battery. A few days later I got a flat, and told the service guy at the shop what happened. He checked the voltage on the "jump points" and told me the jump points weren't connected to the battery. I found out that if you need to jump this vehicle, remove the fuse block,a nd put the jumper cables directly on the battery. I spent 100 bucks on a new battery for nothing!!!

Lesson Learned: Chevy "Jump Points" make me want to jump off a bridge!
