OK, there are several points that need to be made here.

First, please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

Second, the fuse for your Auxilliary Power outlets is marked "AUX PWR" and is located in the engine compartment fuse block.

Third, this fuse has absolutely nothing to do with your Stabiltrak system, nor does it have anything to do with your engine management system. This fuse powers ONLY the Auxilliary power outlets.

If your battery has gone dead, it may now be very weak and can cause all kinds of drivability problems. If your battery is more than 4 years old, it may be time to replace it. It could be the root cause of both the Stabiltrak problem and the problem with the way that your engine is running.

The only way to find out why your stabiltrak light was on is to scan your computer system and retrieve the fault code that would have been stored in the computer memory when the light came on. the same should be done for your engine management system if you are experiencing problems with the way it is running.

    I had the same problem with stabiltrak on my 07 equinox LS. The dealer scanned the computer and changed the electric streering control unit. The problem never came back, this happened 3 yrs ago. Hope this helps.

My 2008 Chevy Equinox intermittently gives me messages that say "service stabilitrak" and "stabilitrak off." Sometimes I can drive it for a coupld of days with the stabilitrak working...

If you get an ABS (anti lock brake system) light on as well, you probably have a bad front wheel bearing (the ABS wheel speed sensor is built-in). Check the harnesses going to the sensors first, they may be damaged from turning. If no ABS light accompanying the Stabilitrak message, then you will need to get it scanned for a diagnostic code to further evaluate.

My sister's '07 Chevy Equinox will have the

The PCM (computer) is limiting the throttle because something is wrong with your suspension , steering or braking system. Have you had brakes worked on, changed tire sizes etc? The stabilitrack system gets feedback from sensors in each wheel> Such as speed, rotation angle etc and makes adjustments to stabilize the vehicle. If the sensors are not working properly or the braking is not balanced, the computer will throttle down the vehicle to prevent what it thinks is the beginning of a skid.

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.
