Please EXPLAIN Stabilitrak/Traction Control, Launch Control!

I've tried to search for this topic, I thought I had seen it before, but please explain the settings and how to set them.

1) Stabilitrak

2) Traction Control

3) What is the advantage of shutting one of these off over the other?

4) I recall holding the button for seven seconds? What is that for?

5) What does it mean when both TC and Stabilitrak OFF lights are lit (is this in Launch Control?

Sorry if this is a repeat, but no where had a concise explanation that I could find! Thanks

stabilitrak and traction control

Stabilitrak Adjusts engine torque and/or brake pressure at the individual wheels to get you back on your intended path.

Traction control senses and reduces wheel spin to help maintain traction.

Traction Control

When drive wheel slip is noted, the EBCM will enter traction control mode.

First, the EBCM requests the engine control module (ECM) to reduce the amount of torque to the drive wheels via a serial data message. The ECM reduces torque to the drive wheels and reports the amount of delivered torque.

If the engine torque reduction does not reduce drive wheel slip, the EBCM will actively apply the brakes on the slipping drive wheel. During traction control braking, hydraulic pressure in each drive wheel circuit is controlled to prevent the drive wheels from slipping. The EBCM commands the pump motor and appropriate solenoid valves ON and OFF to apply brake pressure to the slipping wheel.

Traction control can be manually disabled by pressing the traction control switch.





Stability Control

Stability control provides added stability during aggressive maneuvers. Yaw rate is the rate of rotation about the vehicle's vertical axis. The stability control is activated when the EBCM determines that the desired yaw rate does not match the actual yaw rate as measured by the yaw rate sensor.

The desired yaw rate is calculated by the EBCM using the following inputs:
• Steering wheel position
• Vehicle speed
• Lateral acceleration

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.

Stability control activations generally occur in turns during aggressive driving. When braking during stability control activation, the brake pedal may pulsate.

Stability control can be manually disabled by pressing the traction control switch for 5 s.
