this means that you have a fault with your stability control system. the stability control is designed to prevent a rollover it detects body roll when you are driving the ride control is the air suspension sytem this keeps ride hieght the same based on how wieght is in the vehicle. check the links that connect the switches to the suspension you may have one dissconnected (these links wear out over time you night have to replace them) there is one on each wheel postion if you need anything else let me know

There is a "steering Wheel position sensor" ($80) that most likely is sending that signal, and most likely in error.Especially, if the SSS message is intermittent. (One day it's on, next it's off).
If you "feel" a different ride, such as pulling to one side or the other or brakes grabbing, then yes, the vehicle needs servicing.
Don't let the service people tell you to inflate your tires (common response).
Hope this helps!

This refers to the suspension and steering, you probably have a faulty sensor somewhere.
One of the most common sensors to fail in this system is the steering wheel position sensor.
You need to run a diagnostic check to pull the trouble codes to pinpoint the faulty component.
How to pull the codes.....
Use the 3 switches located to the right (LH drive cars) of the Driver Information Center (DIC) to activate and respond to the OBD prompts on the DIC.
ON/OFF = YES
INFO RESET = NO
INFO DOWN or INFO UP = manual toggle
Ignition ON, acknowledge any warning messages;.
Press ON/OFF and INFO UP together for 2 to 3 seconds. Everything in front of you lights up for 4 or 5 seconds, then you will see:
Display shows "ALL?"
Answering YES will display "ALL CODES?"
Answering YES will run automatic test sequence and display codes, if any.
"ALL CLEAR CODES?" will display at the end of the automatic test. If you are satisfied you have the information you need, answer YES to clear/erase all error codes.
Answering "ALL?" with INFO DOWN will toggle systems test manually in order.
Answering "ALL?" with INFO UP will toggle system test manually in reverse order.
Press INFO RESET to reset DIC to "ALL?" to start again.
Ignition OFF to exit.
Write down the codes as they appear on the DIC, you may need to run the check again as it tends to scroll through quickly.
Report back here with the codes.

SOURCE: servicing stability system
traction control/stability control is usually part of the abs(anti-lock brake system) system without a scanner it would be almost impossible to diagnose if your not firmiliar with abs and the way it works take it to a shop

The speed of the vehicle
The lateral, or sideways acceleration of the vehicle
The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. When a yaw rate error is detected, the EBCM attempts to correct the vehicle's yaw motion by applying brake pressure to one or more of the wheels. The amount of brake pressure which is applied varies, depending on the correction required. The engine torque may be reduced also, if it is necessary to slow the vehicle while maintaining stability.
VSES activations generally occur in turns during aggressive driving. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal may pulsate. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation than during ABS activation.
