Change the stability sensor or and check all the brake system, because when you have a problem with the brakes they automatically lock the car to avoid a crash. could be any other sensor or the pads or anything running abnormal in the brake system.

2001 cadillac deville service system stability


Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

I HAVE A 2002 CADILLAC STS. THE BRAKE, ABS, & TRACTION CONTROL WARNING LIGHTS ARE ON. IT ALSO SAYS TO SERVICE STABILITY SYSTEM. THE CAR HAS BEEN CHECKED & NO PROBLEMS WERE FOUND. THE TECH SAID THAT...


I have the same car and had the same issue, you will need to replace a wheel bearing hub assembly. The speed sensor is more than likely bad. I actually had the problem yesterday, and I replaced the hub today and it cost me $142.00 = tax for the repair. It's not hard to do, if you have the tools. Hope this helps

Service stablization system


this is a warning that there is a problem with the electronic traction control system, a part or circuit has failed, u will need to have the dealer test the system for a trouble code that will be stored in the control modules memory that will indicate were to look for the defective part, it will most likely be a wheel speed sensor, until the system light is out it is disabled.

2005 sts code states service suspension and service wheel sensors


So does my 2006 STS....!
On the Tire monitoring subject.... The next time it tells you to service it, scroll through and see if the system is reporting a tire pressure for each tire, if it is, and there is not all dashes for one of the tires, there is nothing to worry about.
Note.... aftermarket rims, tire sealants and tire rotations done without "relearning wheel sensor positions", (page 5-67 in your manual), can cause a "DTC" (Diagnostic Trouble Code) to display and tell you to service it.
On the stability system, I have to do some more digging....

Service Stability System keeps coming up on my display. It seems to do it right after starting my car and backing up or when coming to a stop sign. The other day I backed out of an area kind of quickly due...


I had the same problem...but I found out that the dealer had rotated incorrectly the tires.
Front and back are different sizes and if a rotation is performent front to rear, you may get a stability light warning.

I corrected my tires and the warning went a way.
