If the problem is due to failed struts, I recommend converting from the air system to passive, coil spring suspension. Also, depending on how many miles are on the vehicle, you may need to replace your shocks. The average life span of shocks is approximately 50,000 miles. Check out Strutmasters website for more details: http://www.strutmasters.com/cadillac-cts-suspension-s/46.htm

Could be several things.

have you changed anything before this happened? Like tires?

If not then it could also be a bad Yaw Sensor.

There are several things that can cause this issue so its to really help without seeing the car.

I would check your front struts. when your struts are bad your car will tend to pitch and roll a lot more, and even something as simple as turning a corner can activate the stabilization function. also check the recalls for the cts. there is one out there that affects the front suspension that could have a bearing on your problem.

Sometimes stabilitrak service message comes on, but the car drives good.


If you took it to get a code readout, you might have a safer idea of what sensor might be having a malfunction. Is the message under normal driving conditions? Or are you experiencing these messages under snow and ice or rain? Stability lights will come on during hard accerations also because it is a complete different computing system that adjusts your ride as you go. If you are experiencing this during horseplay then it is doing its job to inform you it is working but if it is coming n during normal driving conditions then you are experiencing something worth getting check out by a real professional that can prove what is wrong rather than guess.

Why does my Jeep odometer needle go to zero and gas peddle not work while I am driving down the road?


I don't have a solution for you yet. If I may ask for additional information please? Does the "Check Engine" light ever come on? Either way why not take it to an auto parts store like AutoPalace / Autozone / or PepBoys etc. where they offer a free computer analysis of you automobile's on board computer & engine control unit. Perhaps there is a message there that could help you diagnost the problem. Good luck.

2wd vs AWD


Page 13 of owner's manual says:
AdvanceTrac
(if equipped):
Illuminates when the AdvanceTrac
system is active. If the light remains
on, have the system serviced
immediately.
AWD locked (if equipped):
AWD
Illuminates when all wheel drive
LOCKED
(AWD) is engaged/activated. If the
light continues to flash, have the
system serviced.

Page 224:
ALL WHEEL DRIVE (AWD) SYSTEM (IF EQUIPPED)
Your vehicle may be equipped with an All Wheel Drive (AWD) transfer
case. With the AWD option, power is supplied to all four wheels
automatically with no need to shift between two-wheel drive and
four-wheel drive. If your vehicle is equipped with the AdvanceTrac
stability enhancement feature, you can change AWD modes, if desired,
by selecting AWD options through the message center.
For the lubricant specification and refill capacity of the AWD transfer
case refer to Maintenance and specifications chapter.
If your vehicle is equipped with AWD, a spare tire of a different
diameter than the road tires should never be used. Such a tire
could make the vehicle difficult to control as well as result in damage
to driveline components.
Utility and four-wheel drive vehicles are not designed for
cornering at speeds as high as passenger cars any more than
low-slung sports cars are designed to perform satisfactorily under
off-road conditions. Avoid sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers in these
vehicles.
The following sections, Normal operation, Autolock operation and
Disabling AWD, apply only to vehicles which allow the driver to change
AWD modes through the message center.
Normal operation (vehicles equipped with AdvanceTrac
During normal operation:
• the AWD system is in AWD AUTO mode (AWD LOCKED will
illuminate in the message center for four seconds when you first start
your vehicle). The AWD LOCKED indicator in the instrument cluster
will also come on.
• AWD AUTO mode can be overridden by pressing SETUP in the
message center. When you first press SETUP, AWD <AUTO> will be
displayed, then if you press RESET within four seconds of pressing
SETUP, AWD <LOCKED> will be displayed. AWD <LOCKED> provides
power to all four wheels constantly which allows you to operate your
vehicle in severe winter or off-road conditions such as deep snow, ice
or shallow sand. It is not recommended that you use AWD <LOCKED>
on dry pavement.

Page 225:
• AWD <LOCKED> can be cancelled by pressing RESET in the message
center. (The AWD LOCKED display in the message center will then
turn off and the display will return to AWD <AUTO> for four seconds
when the shift is complete.)
Autolock operation (vehicles equipped with AdvanceTrac
If the AWD system begins to overheat, the system will place itself in the
Autolock mode:
• the AWD LOCKED indicator light will illuminate in the instrument
cluster and AWD DISABLED <LOCKED> will be displayed in the
message center.
• AWD LOCKED will be displayed in the message center for four
seconds and a warning chime will sound. This condition may clear
without any action being taken by the driver.
• the AWD LOCKED indicator light in the instrument cluster will turn
off when the AWD system cools down.
• When the system is sufficiently cooled down, AWD AUTO RESTORED
will appear in the message center for four seconds and a warning
chime will sound.
Disabling AWD (vehicles equipped with AdvanceTrac
When a problem is detected in the AWD system:
• the AWD LOCKED indicator light in the instrument cluster will flash
eight times every two minutes in the message center.
• The message center will then display AWD DISABLED for four
seconds, then SEE OWNER'S MANUAL. A warning chime will also
sound. The warning displays and chime will continue until RESET is
pressed (which will clear the message from the display).
• AWD LOCKED can still be engaged by pressing SETUP (the message
center will display AWD <DISABLED> LOCKED), then pressing
RESET. The AWD LOCKED indicator light will illuminate in the
instrument cluster and the message center will display AWD
DISABLED <LOCKED>.
• To disable AWD, press RESET. The system will go back to AWD AUTO
mode momentarily, then the AWD LOCKED indicator light will flash in
the instrument cluster eight times every two minutes. The display will
then show AWD <DISABLED> LOCKED for four seconds and then
turn off.

Page 226:
• If a serious problem occurs with the AWD system, the AWD LOCKED
indicator light in the instrument cluster will flash 10 times every two
minutes. The message center will also display CHECK AWD and a
warning chime will sound. You can press SETUP to check the status of
the AWD system (which will display AWD <DISABLED> LOCKED),
but the AWD system will be disabled until the system is serviced.
Driving off-road with truck and utility vehicles
AWD vehicles are specially equipped for driving on sand, snow, mud and
rough terrain and have operating characteristics that are somewhat
different from conventional vehicles, both on and off the road.
When driving at slow speeds off-road under high outside temperatures,
use 1 (First) gear when possible. 1 (First) gear operation will maximize
the engine and transmission cooling capability.
Under severe operating conditions, the A/C may cycle on and off to
protect overheating of the engine.

When braking down from Highway Speed their is a vibration in the brake peddle. Also the stablizer message come on several time when I'm driving down the highway.


You have warped the rotors. Hard braking and a heavy foot on the brake pedal at stops will do that. See a dealer for the other.

Stability engaged message on my 1997 Cadillac Deville, what does it mean?


Does this message appear all the time? Or does itonly occur at times when you are driving the car. If it only comes on when you are driving the car it means you are driving in a manner which may cause the car to go out of control and the system takes over automatically ie if this is the case the message is normal

Tcs light flashes


if you're flooring the car and there's wheelspin that will activate the tcs, which stands for traction control system. It cuts fuel to slow you down until you gain traction. So no burnouts on the TL. =D
