If you have a scan tool that can read data and codes, plug it in and see if there are any DTCs set in the engine computer. A lot of times, the stabilitrak light will start coming on like that when there's really a problem in the engine. It's worth a shot to check it out. I've seen engine misfires cause what you're describing. If you can get a scan tool that reads engine data, check out your misfire counter data. See if there are any history misfires, and if there are, which cylinder has the history misfires. See if the current misfire counter shows misfires when the condition is occurring.

This sounds like a wiring issue, check and make sure the transmission connector is ok, no broken locks on hard shell or bent pins.

SOURCE: Hard Clutch and 1st and 2nd Gear Shifting is hard

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.
Good luck

Why does Stabilitrak Off fault light come on when trying to pass a car?


I have a 2008 model. I am assuming the stabilitrak button(on my SUV) located next to the geer shift is turning the stabilitrak system
on and off OK? If not maybe just this switch is bad?
Unfortunately my stabilitrak alarm indicator has started coming on
periodically too. Mine seems to get reset after driving it for some
time then stopping and restarting after several short trips. I'm not
sure if mine is a real issue if it goes away after a while of driving.
The last time my "check engine" light came on also. When the
traction control alarm went away, so did the check engine alarm.
Good luck.

My service stabletrack keeps come on how to fix that


Hi there:

Your vehicle is equipped with StabiliTrak, which combines antilock brake, traction and stability control systems and helps the driver maintain directional control of the vehicle in most driving conditions.
Traction control activates when the controller senses wheel spin. StabiliTrak will selectively apply the brakes and reduce engine torque to help regain traction.


Stability control activates when the controller senses a discrepancy between your intended path and the direction the vehicle is travelling. StabiliTrak selectively applies braking pressure at any one of the vehicle's brakes to help guide the vehicle in the direction which you are steering.


When you first start your vehicle and begin to drive away, the system performs several diagnostic checks to insure there are no problems. You may hear or feel the system working. This is normal and does not mean there is a problem with your vehicle. If driving conditions delay system initialization, the STABILITRAK NOT READY message may be displayed. If this is the case, your vehicle does not need servicing.


When the StabiliTrak system is both on and actively controlling the stability of the vehicle, the StabiliTrak light will blink for the duration of the event.


You may also feel or hear the system working. This is normal.
StabiliTrak will turn off automatically if a problem is detected in the system. The StabiliTrak light will come on and SERVICE STABILITRAK will be displayed on the DIC. For vehicles without a DIC, the StabiliTrak light and the StabiliTrak service light will both come on. If the SERVICE STABILITRAK message (or StabiliTrak service light) does not clear itself after restarting the vehicle, you should see your dealer for service.


Hope this helps.

I have a wrench with a car swerving light up every once in awhile but I have no idea what it means and I have no idea what stabilitrak is


{: ) A car swerving light on the instrument cluster is the StabiTrak indicator, sometimes called the traction control indicator. A wrench beside it tells it requires servicing.

Where is the stabilitrak button on the shift handle? 2006 trailblazer


The stabilizer button is located on the left side of the gear shift stick. It is a small oval button barely noticeable. (sort of like an overdrive button that barely sticks out) When you press it or disengage it the stabilizer light comes on. Press it again and it should go off.

My stabilitrak light continues to come on. What does this mean? Am I in danger driving with this light on? What does this mean? It tells me that it needs service. 2008 Chevy Trail Blazer.


If your stabilitrak light continues to come on, that means the problem with your stability system really need to be checked out. It is not a dangerous issue, you can still drive safely without the aid of stabilitrak. However, since it is designed on your car, you should enjoy the advantages of having a good stabilitrak system because it enhances driving convenience and control, added safety as well. So better have it scanned and fixed, or the light will just annoy you every time. Okay, there? goodluck. : )

My car is 2007 chevy suburban 5.3 llitter and i get stabilitrack of light is on at idleing and when i go higher rpm it turns off.and cuple days ago i had check engine light on and the code was missfire...


Hi. It is possible that the stabilitrak light is only an indicator to another problem. The main issue is the condition of your engine. When there is a check engine light, a code usually sets. The stabilitrak system doesnt function well if it detects that the engine master(the ECM) is not feeling well. Better have your vehicle scanned to determine the exact source of engine fault, and the stabilitrak will improve in effect. Okay? : )

We keep getting a message stabilitrak off, service stabilitrak then low engine power and I can't go above 40mph. Sometimes it clears after I turn off the vehicle and sometimes I can't drive it for a day....


I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM BUT MINE ONLY COMES ON WHEN I AM IN GEAR, IDLEING AT A STOPLIGHT OR IN A DRIVE THRU. TOOK IT TO GM AND THEY ARE TELLING ME IT IS A "P0300 AND P0301" CODES WHICH SAYS IT A VALVE TRAIN MIS-FIRE ( TO FIX IT IS A 2000.00 HEAD JOB) AND THAT IS WHY THE STABILITRAK AND ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON!!! IN MY RESEARCH SO FAR I HAVE FOUND NOTHING THAT TIES THE TWO TOGETHER.
I HAVE 102,000 MILES ON MINE AND IT RUNS PERFECT AND MPG IS THE SAME AS THE DAY I GOT IT. I WILL KEEP YOU UP ON WHAT FURTHER I FIND. I AM NOW IN CONTACT WITH THE GM DISTRICT SUPERVISOR.
