Question about 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

Tahoe stabilitrak problem

Ever since my Stabilitrak light came on so has my Traction light, and they flash back and forth on and off. No one or the dealership knows what is wrong and because those lights are on it makes my truck **** into first gear. Im tired of taking it to different places and they charging me for not knowing what it is. Then what really makes me mad is I took it to the Lang's Chevrolet dealership to have them look at it, and none of them knew what it was then to add insult to injury they wanted to charge me $1500.00 to take my engine apart to see if it was that then told me " if it wasn't i'd be charged again to look at something else" and i'm like really!! I took it too the dealership because this is where we suppose to bring it to get our vehicle fixed and if the body shop doesnt know nor does anyone else then I think it's time for the manufacture to step up and do something. Because of all this i've almost been in two fatal accidents with my daughter in the vehicle and one being in rain and my truck sliding all over the highway a semi and myself almost slammed into each other, and the second was my truck was jerking and it cut off in the middle of the highway during rush hour traffic, cars going 70 miles an hour and my truck just cuts off. Its too the point where I ask myself if its safe for me to drive and I shouldnt have to, I bought me truck at the dealership with cash and I feel like something needs to be done before myself or my child gets hurt, an then that would lead to a court case.

SOURCE: Hard Shifting after highway driving (1997 Chevrolet Tahoe)?

The problem sounds like your kick down cable has gone bad. There should be a cable that runs from the transmission to the linkage on the TBI(i'm assuming it is a TBI[Throttle Body Injection]) At the throttle bracket, it is the lowest cable. It should have a little plastic box and you should be able to push on the button and slide the little plastic piece in or out of the box. This will adjust your shift points, being plastic, the cable likes to slip if it gets old. Also if you have book or have access to one it should tell you how to locate and check it but usually you have to replace them once they start to slip, the one I got for my 1992 was only like 28 dollars so it's not to bad just a real pain.

SOURCE: Hard Shifting after highway driving (1996 Chevrolet Tahoe)?

converter clutch regulator valve is worn causing line pressure to rise to maximum in turn causing your harsh shifts. Sonax makes a repair kit for it or you can install a stiffer spring to make it work correctly

SOURCE: 2002 chevy cavalier turns off while driving

I fix my own 1998 cavalier. before I had the same problem. mechanics made me changed catalyte converter, combustion gaskets, EGR, fuel injectors with a tune up on spark plugs and boots... BUT the problem was still there. they all gave up and told me to trash the dang thing but I kept it. did research and studies, lots. finally found out the car was design without a regular pcv valve. **There is a thing called an air/oil separator on it. Its mounted on the block of the engine just right above of the oil filter. You must clean out the tubes. The one that usually gets clogged by oil slug would be the one connected to the oil. runs smooth like a baby after you get that clean. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Service Stabilitrak-Reduced Engine Power

the engine light is a generic fault indicator in your car to point out something is not quite right with the engine, having a loss of power as well is also known in some areas as Limp Mode or Safety Mode. it means the car is restricting the power it gives to ensure no damage it done to the engine.

the only certain way to find out what is wrong is to take it to a garage that has diagnostics equipment that can read the fault codes from the vechicles ECU (the fault codes will be the reason the light on the dash has come on as its reporting a fault somewhere)..

your mechanic should be able to tell you what is wrong with the engine from that and give you a more accurate cost at fixing it.

I keep getting a message service stabilitrak


StabiliTrak Indicator Light: If the warning light does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem. If it stays on, or comes on when you are driving, there may be a problem with your StabiliTrak system and your vehicle may need service. When this warning light is on, the system is off and will not limit wheel spin. Adjust your driving accordingly.

This light will also flash when the StabiliTrak system is active. If the StabiliTrak system warning light comes on and stays on for an extended period of time when the system is turned on, your vehicle needs service.

The traction control part of StabiliTrak can be turned off by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if both systems (traction control and StabiliTrak) were previously on. To disable both traction control and StabiliTrak, press and hold the button for five seconds.

Traction control and StabiliTrak can be turned on by pressing and releasing the StabiliTrak button if not automatically shut off for any other reason.

When the TCS or StabiliTrak system is turned off, the StabiliTrak light and the appropriate TCS off or StabiliTrak off message will be displayed on the DIC to warn the driver. Your vehicle will still have brake-traction control when traction control is off, but will not be able to use the engine speed management system.

If the StabiliTrak and/or Traction Control are not operating properly, I encourage you to take your vehicle in for inspection. A certified technician will be able to offer a more accurate diagnosis.

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.

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.
