It is anti lock braking. (don't worry, you will still have the ability to stop the car) It can run from around $200( find and fix a broken wire) to $1500 to figure out and replace the ABS module. But again, when the ABS fails, it reverts to the old braking system. Basically meaning that if you hit the brakes hard enough, the tires will lock up/stop turning. Skidding can be the result of this. Loose control of the car. Just give your self plenty of stopping room between you and the car in front of you.

    I failed to mention it said car was using 50% engine power and was shifting hard. Not running smoothly.

  • Randy Ohler Apr 12, 2015

    That doesn't have any thing to do with the stabilitrack system. The power lose could be a brake caliper locked up though. Raise the tires of the ground and see if they turn freely. If not, then it could be the brake hoses going to the calipers or the caliper itself. If one or more is grabbing badly, this could cause a lose of power and hard shifting. But won't cause an engine to run badly/smoothly. Check the tires and let me know.

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.

You will need to have those systems scanned to retrieve the trouble codes. You can then use those codes to help figure out what is going on. A high end scan tool will need to be used to get the codes. Any good shop or dealer will have one.

{: ) The two triangles you saw is for the StabilTtrak system,, sometimes called the traction control indicator. When you see a spanner beside it, it means the system needs servicing.
StabiliTrak will turn off automatically if a problem is detected in the system. For vehicles without a DIC, the StabiliTrak light and the StabiliTrak service light will both come on. If the StabiliTrak service light does not clear itself after restarting the vehicle, you should see your dealer for service.

The service stabilitrak comes on if you pass gas near one of these vehicles. It can be from anything like a weak battery or a sticking EGR valve (my car's current issue) to a wheel sensor module/hub assembly (past problem with mine) or a combination of things. The first step is to get the error codes checked by someone with a reader (dealer or good mechanic). From there, you will know enough to say how much it will cost to fix it. Chevy needs to be sued for this problem because they won't do anything to change it otherwise. It's basically a useless warning light because the AWD is always on, and unless you get an ABS warning, or plan on driving like a maniac on a muddy road, the Stabilitrack is a waste of money. If it ever DOES come on, it will probably be after you hit something, anyway.

Why does stabilitrak light come on saying service stabilitrak, stabilitrak off?


It's telling you your stabilitrak system is not functioning properly. Sensors in system are failing and setting service light. You need a GM dealer to diagnose system.
