Stabilize system activates on right turn when braking

I have 2000 Buick Park Avenue (loaded) .When turning right and applying brakes the Stability Control System activates, ON -- and then activates the ABS system ON -- and won't allow car to move through the turn when you accelerate the engine . I then have to shut off the ignition for a few seconds which clears the problem and restart the engine. Any Ideas?

Yoho, I beleive you will find a wheel speed sensor fault. As you apply the brake, the ABS unit sees a "0" MPH reading on one of the sensors and assumes the tire is sciding. Therefore, activates the stability system.
Have the vehicle scanned at your favorite shop or go to Auto Zone / Advanced Auto for a free scan. Record the codes.
Let me know.
Regards,

The right turn signal on my 1997 buick park avenue will not work. all other parts of this multi switch work


Does the front and rear light on the right side come on when you activate the switch ?
If a light is out the system won't flash.
If one side comes on and the other does not, the problem is usually in the turn signal switch.

What is the stability system? is it important to fix right away?


The stability system uses opposing force braking to keep the car stable in low traction conditions, it is a very good safety system and should be checked as soon as possible.
