SOURCE: 2001 Elantra stall, loss of power. Driving at

I am having the exact same problem with my 2001 Hyundai Elantra. I was told that the engine code that comes up when the sensor is on is called "Absolute Pressure In The Manifold". I was told by a "Hyundai Specialist" that when that code comes up it usually means that the seal on the manifold is Fuct. When my mechanic checked that out for me he had noticed that my manifold had 4 cracks in it(can varify cause he showed me). He replaced the manifold and gasket. The car ran fine for about 2-3 days and since then the problem has since come back and my check engine light will no longer go on/off it only stays on. Because of the check engine light always staying on I have noticed that on many occasions my car will hiccup many times in a row. The only way to stop the hiccup I have noticed is to take my foot right of the gas for approx. 2-3 sec then car will continue without hiccup(till it happends all over again). All in all I have been having this problem now for approx. 1 year and if there is somehow someway it could be repaired I would appretiate it.

Hi,
It is a wiring fault, but they are looking on the wrong end. You will need to have a VW dealer "repin" the electrical connector at the throttle body. What this means is, the dealer will take apart the connector, cut off the old pins and crimp on new ones and reassemble the connector. This is a common problem on drive by wire VW's. The dealer has a bulletin on the problem and I don't know why they missed it. They will probably have to order the connector kit however. Good luck!

SOURCE: Stabilitrak remains on once I

Hello.... The stabilitrak system is controlled by the abs module. Its job is to maintain vehicle stability in situations where you may normally lose control by activating the abs system and/or changing the valving in the shock absorbers. When the message is displayed there is a problem in the system, could be an issue with a sensor or wiring. There are a couple of common problems with the system that require reprogramming the engine control module and the abs module. This must be performed at the dealer. The only way to know exactly what the issue is would be to have the abs computer scanned for trouble codes.
GM issued a couple of tech bulletins in regards to owners having this problem.
I hope this helps.

Stabilizer traction control light is on, and lost cruise control


Cruise control will always disable itself when any CEL light is present, so that's normal. The Stabilitrak light problem is a known common problem with these. Your steering wheel position sensor needs to be replaced. Mine does it every morning IF my steering wheel wasn't put into a straight position when I parked it. Straighten the tires, turn the ignition off and restart. Light will go out.

Why does Stabilitrak Off fault light come on when trying to pass a car?


I have a 2008 model. I am assuming the stabilitrak button(on my SUV) located next to the geer shift is turning the stabilitrak system
on and off OK? If not maybe just this switch is bad?
Unfortunately my stabilitrak alarm indicator has started coming on
periodically too. Mine seems to get reset after driving it for some
time then stopping and restarting after several short trips. I'm not
sure if mine is a real issue if it goes away after a while of driving.
The last time my "check engine" light came on also. When the
traction control alarm went away, so did the check engine alarm.
Good luck.

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.

Why does my stabilitrak service light come on when I'm on the freeway?


Have a repair shop check for codes--- SOON---
& diagnose that system

There is no guessing at vehicle problems

Running fine is ---in your mind---

Your asking about a braking system issue,
not engine performance issue

Read your owners manual

Read anyone's owners manual

Obviously the vehicle has a problem,that has to be found,
& a solution found & you pay for all that & the repair

What do these icons mean 2996 gmc envoy


Do you mean 2006 GMC Envoy?
Top left- car with squiggly tire tracks and a wrench- that means something is wrong with your Stabilitrak (traction control) system. Top right- triangle around the car with squiggly tire tracks- this light comes on when the light on the top left comes on. It also means something is wrong with the Stabilitrak system. Bottom left- Antilock Brake System warning light- This means there is a fault in the antilock brake system. Considering that the stabilitrak control is part of the antilock brake system, it looks like there may be a common problem affecting both systems. You need to use a scan tool to access the chassis control system and read the diagnostic codes. There are definitely Diagnostic Trouble Codes stored when these lights are on. The code does not tell you what part to replace, but rather gives you a direction to go in diagnosing the cause of the problem.

Stabilitrak and ABS lights come on but car is running fine


Nope, but take it in. Brake problems are nothing to fool with They'll probabl tell you it's the ABS ECU. Not a cheap item.. However, it only affects the ABS system, not the brakes itself.

My stabilitrak light continues to come on. What does this mean? Am I in danger driving with this light on? What does this mean? It tells me that it needs service. 2008 Chevy Trail Blazer.


If your stabilitrak light continues to come on, that means the problem with your stability system really need to be checked out. It is not a dangerous issue, you can still drive safely without the aid of stabilitrak. However, since it is designed on your car, you should enjoy the advantages of having a good stabilitrak system because it enhances driving convenience and control, added safety as well. So better have it scanned and fixed, or the light will just annoy you every time. Okay, there? goodluck. : )

I backed the 2004 envoy into my driveway and the engine killed and the reduced engine power light came on along with service engine light also. Restarted the engine and had no throttle while in park...


You need to check the fuel injection system, throttle body, sensors, check harness for ground. Best solution is to have your engine scanned using Tech 2 scanner. The mechanic will advice you based on the scan code. Whenever the "service engine soon " light the computer system logs the error code. You can retrieve this error code using a scanner.
