Still having issues with my StabiliTrak lights coming on and going off. Been in for service several times and discovered various codes, but nothing has fixed it. One time in for service it was a low voltage code and so they cleaned and re-tightened the terminal. Unhooked my underhood light and tried to say that was the problem. Guess what, the lights came back on again. Last time in, they found a sensor harness partially disconnected. Light goes off, but while driving home the damn lights came back on again. I have GM involved now, but they are telling me to put all the factory parts back on, so that they can diagnose the problem.Really??? What a joke!!!
Only when hell freezes over! The GM customer service rep kept deflecting and stating that they cannot do anything unless all the aftermarket parts are taken off and factory parts put back on. HEY LADY, THE DAMN LIGHT WAS COMING ON BEFORE ALL THE MODS! Besides, I highly doubt a camshaft, headers, and exhaust has anything to do with it. This is the treatment I get for being a loyal GM customer for the last 24 years. What's second worse to a lyer, is a person who makes excuses so that they don't have to do anything.

Had this happen to me this morning. I drove my car back home put my scanner on it sure enough misfire cylinder 6 and 4. Pop the hood and see the plug wires just laying there. For some reason the plug wires just popped off. I plugged them back up checked the others and reset the light no issues.

If you have a "Service StabiliTrak" on the dic on start up then it shuts off after 2-3 seconds, theres a updated calibration for the EBCM. The bulletin# is PIC5432A. Here is also a .pdf copy of it.

The message has nothing to do with Stabillitrack. Your engine is misfiring

Just to be crstal clear. The StabiliTrak message pops up while driving normally down the road at constant speed. I have seen it pop up after the engine starts and right after I put it in gear. It will stay on various periods of time. Sometimes going off after 30 minutes and sometimes it stays on for days. I have had periods of time of about 2-3 months and the light never comes on.

Not sure if this will help, but just keep it mind to have it checked out next time at the dealer. I have been fighting the "Service Stabilitrak" light for about 11K miles or so. Just now starting to get to the bottom of it. One trip to the dealer, they discoverd that the wiring harness was partially unplugged, but the light came back on afterwards. Today, they discovered that the steering wheel angle sensor is bad. Hopefully, this will take care of the light. I have had it serviced numerous other times, but no real reason to the cause. A low voltage reading appeared one time doing the diagnostics, but the light continued to come on. So, I will coninue to take it to the dealer in hopes of finally eliminating all the possible causes. It just makes me wonder how many other things are partially unplugged or bad on the car.

I've been dealing with this issue for a couple of years now... recently its been getting worse. It used to only pop the "Service Stabilitrak" light after restarting the car while the motor is still hot, but recently its been popping the light every time I start the car. It'll randomly go on and off, sometimes for a few seconds, other times for a few minutes. I've had the codes checked and its telling us theres a misfire in cylinder #6 but we cant seem to narrow down the exact problem. We have replaced the spark plugs, spark plug wires, and installed a new coil, we also replaced the power and ground wires for the battery just to make sure that wasnt the issue. We're now starting to think theres something wrong with my tune, and I'm thinking about getting it redone this weekend. Anyone have any other ideas?

I would suggest going to a dealership for a diagnosis. They should be able to pinpoint this for you.

It seems as though when these cars have misfires, a side effect is that PCM goes nuts and issues seemingly unrelated faults like "Service Stabilitrack".

In my case, I had a spark plug wire that was seated all the way. The car ran like crap and every two minutes or so would issue the "Service Stabilitrack" message. Once I figured out the plug wire was loose, I seated the plug wire all the way, cleared the codes and the car has ran like a top since with no more warning messages.

service stabilitrak message

Upon shutting my engine off and going into my house for 5 minutes I came back out started the engine and the Service Stabilitrak message came up and engine started to run terrible, like a few cylinders lost. The car shook unreal. Had chevy dealer take the car and later found out that a valve spring collapsed. Its still in the shop I guess we'll see what's up when they get it started. I'm concerned that the valve isn't damaged, maybe the piston may have damage. They claim the valve never (because) of clearance didn't touch the piston. Definitely a compression check is in order. Any thoughts????

I'm assuming things are fixed now. Since my 2010 is sounding just like your issue, I'm curious how things worked out for you. What actually broke, how extensive did the repair turn out to be?

This just happened to me the other day. I came to a stop sign right before an uphill street, and i stepped on it HARD, and this message popped up. I figured i must have messed something up, so I was kind of scared. Luckily, my house was right around the corner, so i just shut it off and decided to sleep on it. The next day it was gone and hasn't come up again. Should I take it to the dealer??

I've been having this off and on for about 6 months.. Attempted to tighten grounds and check plugs and it still randomly occurs maybe 2 times a month. I keep a wrench in the glove box lol, if it happens I stop and unhook the battery for about a minute which clears it.

If you have a warranty go to the dealer, I have an "extended warranty" that covers some electrical components but talking to 2 dealers sounds like I'd be in for an adventure trying to get that narrowed down and most likely they would attempt to charge for a bunch of uncovered things before even getting to covered electrical.

Since someone revived this dead thread, I'll add today that on my way home from work I did an accel from about 40 to 87 down a hill in third gear, didn't floor it, was more of a gradual pressure on the pedal and the service stabilitrak message and the three lights came on for about 15-30 seconds maybe. I just thought that was odd and started looking into it and found this thread.

I had this problem as well. I had the Vitesse throttle controller and a Vmax ported TB. Got rid of the controller, disconnected the battery and haven't had an issue sense.
