    I found this on wiki... seems like it may work...
    Disconnecting the negative cable can sometimes reset the message center
    light, however there is a procedure for this. Depending on the year of
    your venture this will vary, so to be sure the reset worked, do the
    Key on, engine off, all doors closed...
    push the
    gas pedal all the way to the floor briefing in succession 2 times, then
    do it a third time but hold the pedal down on the third pump. Keep
    holding until the message center flashes your maintenance light.

    If there is no flashing, turn the key off, then back on, and repeat the
    above mentioned procedure, only this time push the pedal 3 times, then
    hold it on the 4th time. If still no blinking, repeat by tapping the
    pedal 4 times, then hold on the 5th. Finally, tap pedal 5 times, then
    on the 6th, hold it.

    GM could not decide which pedal counts
    to stick with for this procedure, so that's why my instructions seem
    repetitive. My wife's 02 Venture is 4 presses, then the 5th is held.

What is an average cost to service the Stabilitrak System in a 2002 Cadillac Escalde

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, STABILITRAK OFF, SERVICE STABILITRAK. If these DIC messages appear, make sure the StabiliTrak system has not been turned off using the StabiliTrak on/off button. Then turn the steering wheel clockwise from the nine o'clock position to the three o'clock position. If this clears the message(s), the vehicle does not need servicing. If this does not clear the message(s), then 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 DIC, the vehicle should be taken in for service.

"Tire Pressure Sensor Fault" keeps coming on on my message center, each time I start the car

You need to put a scanner on the computer and read the codes, then repair the codes called for and using the scanner clear the codes and you will be ok. The button on the message center doesn't reset the computer it just clears the code from the screen.

How to clear the "Check Tires" message from the info panel on the dashboard. I already adjusted the tire pressure in all tires using a digital gauge.

Press the message center SETUP button until the message center displays "Rest for System check". The message center will display "Hold reset to relearn". Hold the reset button. It will cycle through all of its indicators and when it gets to the tire indicator test it will ask you if you want to reset the indicator. Hold the reset button to reset the indicator.

It will not go off until it has been reset.

Clearing service message on dash

Turn the ignition to position 1 Push and hold trip reset while holding. Turn to position 2 hold trip reset till the service light flashes 3 times and then release. You should hear a beep to let you know it is reset. It might take you 2 times sometimes. If you have the message in the text window the little triangle in the center of the speedo assy. will flash. Also another trick to help you is when the milage returns the light should be reset.

Passenger Airbag

as long as the srs light is not on the srs system is functioning properly. There is a passanger seat recognition senser and some vehicles are equiped with baby smart-which disables the passanger front air bag when a mercedes child seat is placed on the passanger front seat. More than likley the airbag is being manually switched off. there should be a place on the dash or center console to place the mechanical part of your smart key into and turn the air bag on or off.Once the system is reactivated clear the message in the cluster or turn off your ignition and remove the key and then reinsert key and turn on-this should clear the memmory of the cluster and your message center should not display any warnings
