Question about 2007 Chevrolet Equinox LS New Cars
The Service Stabilitrak and Traction Control warning messages will come on when there is a problem in the Powertrain Control computer (engine and transmission), there may or may not be a check engine light on. The first step to start is to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. You can have this done free of charge at Auto Zone or visit some AutoShop with scanner reader; without the code, we could only guess.
You have a couple choices. You can go to a shop or dealer and have them scan the system and tell you what is wrong. Once they know the problem, they will quote the repair. You can also go to most any parts store and get the codes scanned for free but... they will not tell you what is wrong. they only give the code and what it means without full diagnostic.
If you go this route, you could come back to us and we can help narrow down once we know the code. In many cases when all these lights come on, it is one of the 4 wheel speed sensors. If one sensor goes bad, the lights come on, disable the system.
This is one of the more common problems we see. A wheel speed sensor price will vary as to if it is bought afternarket or through the dealer.

... If you turn the system off by moving the shift lever
to FIRST (1) or SECOND (2), the warning light will
come on and stay on. To turn the system back on,
move the shift lever back to a position other than
FIRST (1) or SECOND (2). The warning light
should go off. (See "Enhanced Traction System"
in the Index for more information.)
The warning light will come on when you set your
parking brake with the engine running, and it will
stay on if your parking brake doesn't release fully.
If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other
than FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) and the warning
light stays on after your parking brake is fully
released, it means there's a problem with the system.
If the traction control system is affected by an
engine-related problem, the system will turn off
and the warning light will come on.
If the Enhanced Traction System warning light comes
on and stays on for an extended period of time when the
transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST
(1) or SECOND (2) your vehicle needs service.
