Service Stabilitrak Message

Hello, question for you guys.

With a little help today, I just installed a new inner tie rod on the passenger side of my car. The alignment is way off and have an appointment to get it taken care of tomorrow morning.

Right now I'm getting a "Service Stabilitrak" message on my car, along with the indicators that go with it. Also my traction control automatically went off too.

If I get the alignment fixed, should this fix the Stabilitrak message on my car?

You're in luck! Getting an alignment just might fix your issue: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=509148

Thanks! I had to drive it a few miles and it felt pretty weird. Steering wheel all cockeyed. That makes me feel better. I'll post an update tomorrow after the appointment.

Got it fixed this morning and now it works great and no messages or indicators on dash.

A tip for those changing components in the steering.

Jack the car, spin the tire and mark it all around with something you can accurately put a pointer on (a scribe works on a dirty tire). Measure at the front and back of the tire. You want the front to be in about 1/8" from the back. The only way to measure is to make a trammel or buy one. Here's a diy trammel https://enderw88.wordpress.com/2008/...e-trammel-bar/

You can make much simpler trammels if you only use them on one car. The idea is to get you to an alignment shop with the wheels pointed in generally the right direction.
