Question about 2003 Cadillac Escalade
Both the service ride control and check stability system appear on the DIC. I also notice the speedometer can read 80 mph when stopped. after driving for several miles the ride control and stabilty system indicators return and the brakes are engaged. So it left us on the side of the road for about 20minutes then restarted the car and drove home slowly without any more trouble. We've parked it in the garage until I get and idea of what the problem is and what its going to cost. man i miss that car

SOURCE: Stability System
Better check your Alternator. I just replaced mine in my Deville Concours (99), as the battery was dying the stability system message came across. Then when THAT Alternator went out (yea, 4 months later under warranty thank God) I got the same message on the way home that day. I will tell you, if you plan to do it yourself like I did ~ It is a SOB to change. No ifs, ands or buts. Get a halfway decent mechanic to do it unless you want to fight with it for 3 days. Oh - it comes out a trap door at the bottom of the car in the front. You have to unbolt that plate once you get the 4 or 5 huge bolts out of the Alternator...Assuming THAT is your problem. Note, the bolt in the center does not come out and it is the worst one to get to. Take the radiator fan out so you can reach everything. Have I scared you enough.. I hope so. It only took me a week and half to get mine OUT, fixed and BACK in.

The speed senser is mounted on the transmission. This device is an slocrto magnatic motor and they cost less than $100 there held in with one bolt and have an electrical connector. Many times if it's bad enough the check engine light will come on. This problem but the heating up but work OK cild is a good chance the senser has failed.. The trans mission should be checked for overheating as the senser failure will be heal related

If the system fails to turn on or activate, the StabiliTrak®
light along with one of the following messages will be
displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC):
TRACTION CONTROL OFF, SERVICE TRACTION
CONTROL, SERVICE STABILITRAK. If you see these
conditions, turn the vehicle off, wait 15 seconds, and then
turn it back on again to reset the system. If any of these
messages still appear on the Driver Information Center
(DIC), your vehicle should be taken in for service.
