2002 cadillac escalade service stability light came on after driving through deep snow

I drove my caddy through deep snow, which was left by the snow plow, and the light came on. i didn't hear any noises like it was ice and something broke, it was soft snow that was recently plowed.

There are 4 sensors in each wheel , driving on hard old snow could cost damage to anything under car , the first thing I would check Is to see if they are all intact , second I would check if the are where the sensors are clear of any obstructions , check that are pulled broken , there other more tests to be done if the light still there , but it would require a multimeter and a lift to this , by testing unplugging each sensor and testing sensor resistance , while spinning the wheel you should have At least three the same resistance if one is bad it will have give either two much resistance or no resistance at all .
note :- this is just a general idea in what to look for , I didn't technically or physicllay looked at your vehicle and its spec's please becareful web working under car , car must be secured for your Saftey , good luck

SOURCE: 2002 Cadillac Escalade Service Stability System Light comes on

The problem is the wheel bearings that have the ABS sensor attached. Check the computer for the code as there is also an up date for the wiring sytem with a jumper for $60 fix that possible could solve the problem.

SOURCE: resetting service engine soon light in my 2002 cadillac escalade

  1. Turn the ignition key to the RUN position.
  2. Press the INFO button on the Driver Information Center (DIC) button to display ENGINE OIL LIFE.
  3. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes 2 times, the system is reset. However if the light comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, the system did not reset. Repeat the he procedure if the system does not reset.

SOURCE: service stability system light wont go off n 2002 escalade

Hi. this is a very important alert. the stability system on this suv is very sophisticated. there are many sensors that work together with other modules and control units to keep this SUV from rolling over during an abrupt action, due to an extreme situation.This light is warning you of a appending fault that is occurring in one or more of the sensors on board. the best solution is to take your suv to the dealership for a brisk cpu scan. This way, you can find put which sensor it is that is malfunctioning and fix it.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: 2002 escalade service stability system. Is there

Hello: To repair you need to know the code so you know what component is malfunctioning. Many things can bring the light on. Most generic scanners can not access the stability system. GM Tech 2 can.

What does it mean when the service stability system light comes on?


It means that your gonna have to take it to the dealer to get it checked .is this a Cadillac product. Stability is keeping the vehicle level at all times and the light is on because the computer either has to low voltage to operate correctly or to high.it needs scanned to find out the real cause of why it came on.

Hi,I have a 2002 Escalade and my Service Stability System light came on. What does it mean and how much will it cost to fix it? misspatty411@yahoo.com


Service Stability System light comes on when your tires are not gripping the road correctly, this assumes that the truck is sliding and the driver had no control. From what I noticed with mine is that it will disable power to the transmission untill traction is regained around 10 to 20 seconds. I had to shift to netural then back to drive to re-engage the trans. This is a saftey feature that I was impressed with. I paid about 300 to have the dearler replace the part, but I'm quite sure you can get it fixed for less.

2002 Cadillac Escalade 4x4 When turning front wheels pop like in 4 wheel drive. Now the service stability system light is on full time also the ABS light. I have had it at two dealers one couldn't figure...


If you think the dealer caused it get a hold of GM district rep .Talk to the service manager . If the dealer Technician's can't fix it , get the factory involved . In most cases if it is something they did they need to take care of it ,free .

2002 cadillac escalade service ride control light


This happened to my 2002 EXT and two of my buddies Escalades. All 3 were AWD. All we did was replace the Front Hubs. I replaced both Front hubs and the speed sensors. Actually I replaced the speed sensors first because thats what code was coming up, and it didn't fix the problem. So after talking with a freind who is a big time GM Mechanic, he told me it's probably my barrings and since they are sealed I needed to replace the hubs. This is an easy job. I did them myself, and I am by no means a "mechanic".
