    silly question, but are both front tires the same size ? It would be a factor, and you would be surprised how often it occurs.

Had the same problem with mine. A couple of questions to ask. Have you replaced either of the front hub assemblies and does the brake light on the dash illuminate too. If so, dealership will have you replace both hubs costing you more money. Problem is with aftermarket hubs, the electrical connection is not tight enough sending a message to the computer. Apply some dilectric grease and you should be good to go. Good luck.

What is stabilitrak chevy


Stabilitrak is a design that lets the ECU and the ABS system share information. If you step on the gas pedal and loose traction, the ABS tells the ECU that you have lost traction. The ECU calculates what it should do to help and usually will ignore your request for "more fuel" (when you step on the gas pedal) and will reduce the power to the transmission until the ABS system communicates that traction has returned. More than likely there is a failure in the ABS system. The problem may be intermittent right now but this will need to be repaired. If you have an ABS code reader please let me know what codes are stored. If not then you will need to send your car in for diagnostis and an estimate for repair, let me know if I can be of any more help, good luck.

Service lights wont shut off


My first question would be - have you had the engine computer and the body computer scanned ?
The traction control and ABS are handled by a body computer and a basic code reader may not access that computer.
As you say there has to be a problem to make all three warning lights come on.

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.

When ever i start to go from being parked my traction control comes on, only lasts for a few seconds. It happens on paved parkinglot, gravel. it doesnt happen all the time maybe once or twice for a couple...


Did you have "diagnostics" performed, or did you just have somebody pull OBD codes from your engine computer? Trust me, there is a BIG difference! Most traction control fault codes will not show up on a generic OBD scan tool. You need to scan your Antilock Brake System (ABS) module as well as perform a "vehicle-specific" scan on your Powertrain Control Module (PCM). (This cannot be done at your local parts store.)

There is also a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) published by General Motors concerning intermittent traction control and other possible problems due to water getting into connector C305 and causing electrical short circuits. TSB Reference Number: 01-08-45-005E (Checking for this TSB SHOULD have been included in any attempt at a "diagnosis"). This TSB may or may not have any relation to your problem, but a thorough diagnostic check will verify this.

If this is happening when your tires are slipping on gravel in a paved parking lot, it may be perfectly normal operation. In this case, your traction control is only telling you that it is taking control of the wheel slip - especially if it happens when you are accelerating quickly.
