Question about 2008 Pontiac Torrent
The Stabilitrak and ABS light comes on sometimes right away when started other times after 10-15 min. or longer into my drive. The Car seems to be running fine other than the lights coming on. I've checked my brake fluid level to be sure it wasn't that. Is there anything else I can check before taking it in for service?
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.

There is a known failure of the ABS system control board which typically causes this problem. THere are companies out there that will rebuild your current board (if it's rebuildable). Do a search on ABS repair in Moscow, Iowa.
They will rebuild the module for $150.00 and warrant the repair for 5 years (as opposed to up to a $1000 form GM, and no guarantee as to how ling it will last.).
I did this to my '01 Tahoe and am real happy with it. The company offers diagnosis tests to help you determine if the problem is your ABS module.
Reply back what you find.

SOURCE: rear braking
check if this car has load proportioning valves fitted for the rear brakes and working correctly if it is a rear brake slide.if not check A B S sensors and the A B S control unit.if the A B S light comes on when moving it is a sensor problem.if its on with engine on with car stationeryits almost likely to be A B S unit

the traction control system works off of the abs system so there is a code in the abs module that needs to be pulled so you know were to start to check the system out.the service engine light is a different system all together and there is a code in the ecm that must be pulled so you know were to start to check to repair that system.you don`t say why you jumped to the conclusion that the gas cap set a code.the emergency brake light will come on if the e-brake is not all the way in the off position(something may be holding the lever up just enough to put the light on.the switch could be misadjusted and needs to e readjusted.

You have an ABS Braking System Malfunction
Just sillly for a professional to say there is nothing
Your car is not safe to use at all
Need a different repair shop & make sure they
underdstand all the details of the issue & they
write down what you tell them
I never recommend a dealer, but in your area that
may be an option. Don't take it back until they drive
100 miles with no issues
