Question about 2002 Cadillac Escalade

Open Question

Stability? my service stability light has been on for almost 2 years now. I never had an issue, thought it was a sensor. Last summer after driving for a while (45 mins in hot weather) and making a lot of turns (usually happens when turning to the left) my truck would make this horrible noise when i turned like something was literally crunching or breaking apart. After it sits awhile, it goes away. It did it twice that summer and not again until just this past month. I've taken it to the dealership-nobody knows...Anyone have an idea what it may be???

SOURCE: stability system engaged wtf?

This system usually kicks on when it thinks the wheels are spinning out. slows the wheels to regain control. It can also happen in the rain when the car senses it is hydroplaning. If none of these things are possible, it's probably a broken sensor or something.

I dont remember the name for it.VATS I think it's called,it a security item inside your steering wheel the little wire breaks and the system looses it's sense to know what's going on.The car thinks you are in drive mode.

SOURCE: noise in area of drivers side front wheel when

Check tire wear first, and rotate if looks worn in one area, otherwise, Have your wheel bearing(s) inspected/replaced.

Engine hesitation

When is the last time the engine had a tune up with new spark plugs and an inspection of the ignition coils? Ignition coils were a pretty common issue with the V6 engine around that model year.

Service Stable Tracking Light came on

Hi there:

The Traction Control & Stability is a part of the anti lock brake system When these lights come on there has been a failure code set in the computer for a circuit failure.

This can be a sensor problem sometimes or a calibration change for the computer.You should have your local GM dealer check these systems for failures. These 2 systems work together through the EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module).

Hope this helps.

the timing belt will not have anything to do with the motor turning over trying to start. First make sure u do have a very strong battery. Could be a bad connection or a broken wire to starter also.

What's your problem?my 2002 cadillac deville pulls back while driving and the dash board lights up with stability system engaged

You have Malfunction Indicator Lamp lite on your dash,
I assume for some time & ask if you have checked for the
ABS Braking System Codes,since the Stability Light is on

I will assume you have no owners manual & haven't given
much thought to going to a repair shop within a couple of days
of any vehicle issue

Need the codes,then have a shop diagnose that systems problems

Could be a Wheel Speed Sensor,or not

Misfires during a cold start, shows running lean on both banks. Tried changing the spark plugs and the 2 oxygen sensors before the cat.

I am having the same problem. I have an 2004 Tahoe and have had the same problem for the last 2 years. The funny part is that is never happens in the summer and only happens when it is below freezing for the 1st start of the morning. I recently hooked up to a check engine light computer and I got 3 codes. One is P)171, PO174, PO300- They mean too lean in banks 1 and 2 and a misfire similar to yours. I just replaced all the plugs and wires this summer and I am still having the problem. Does anyone have the same problem or a solution to this issue. I have read that it could be a vacuum hose or O2 sensor that is bad but not sure. Any help? Thanks. Brett

Why is the service stabilization system light on in my 2003 Cadillac CTS?

This can be caused by a bunch of different sensors that have gone bad. Anything from the rear-end sensor, to the steering sensor. I would recommend that if you have any type of warranty you take the car in to get it checked out. Most of the time there is not code on this issue. It is a issue that Cadillac has been dealing with for a few years now.

Abs and traction control light is on

There are several fairly serious issues that could lead to this symptom, but one simple one that I can think of. If one or more wheel speed sensors goes out it would lead to these problems. This is probably your cheapest and simplest fix, so check them first. Good luck!
