Not "normal" but the Escalade hasn't gotten good reviews from a large portion of the automotive media---at least not from what I've read.
When you say "not starting" do you mean the engine cranks but doesn't catch, or that it won't even crank?
Maybe I or your regular host here could look up if there is a TSB or other info on your particular problem.

I apologize for the problems you are experiencing with your vehicle. By chance, have you spoken with GM Customer Assistance? Please keep me posted on any information from the dealership.

Two recalls, one for electrical problems and one for the fuel system.
Looks like over 30 Technical Service Bulletins have been issued for various problems.

#271 of 298 Service Stability System
Nov 06, 2011 (6:01 am)
My husband bought my a 2002 USED Cadillac Escalade and I am having problems getting it to stop sometimes. The pedal is all the way to the floor and there is grinding at me feet. He took every thing off and nothing seems to be sticking. My brother in law said something about a brake system was recalled some time in the past on some vehicles. He is a certified HYUNDAI mechanic and he was kinda stumped on the hole thing. I NEED HELP as soon as possible.

My husband is also a certified mechanic and he is pretty stumped on the whole thing. I have searched googled it several times. Come up empty JUST LIKE THE SCAN TOOL. I think it has something to do with the SERVICE STABILITY SYSTEM. My husband said maybe if he disconnects the ABS system it will STOP WHEN I want it to and not when it wants to. Maybe there were recalls or IT NEEDS TO BE. A 2002 is not very old. It only had one owner. The more I drive it the worst it gets. And I almost crashed in my garage door last night.

Bulletin No.: 03-05-25-007D
Date: May 01, 2009
Subject: Antilock Brake (ABS) Activation At Low Speeds (Clean Wheel Speed Sensor Mounting Surface)
2002-2006 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade EXT
2003-2006 Cadillac Escalade ESV
1999-2006 Chevrolet Silverado

2003-2006 HUMMER H2
Supercede:This bulletin is being revised to add the 2007 Silverado/Sierra Classic models. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-05-25-007C (Section 05 - Brakes).
Some customers may comment on ABS activation at low speeds, usually below 8 km/h (5 mph). Upon investigation, the technician will find no DTCs set.
The cause of this condition may be an increased air gap between the wheel speed sensor and the hub reluctor ring due to rust and debris built up on the sensor mounting surface.
Measure AC voltage and clean the wheel speed sensor mounting surfaces.
1. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in the General Information sub-section of the Service Manual.
2. Disconnect both the front wheel speed sensor connectors at the frame and harness.
3. Place a Digital Volt Meter (DVM) across the terminals of each wheel speed sensor connector.
4. Rotate the wheel clockwise approximately one revolution per second. The minimum reading should be at least 350 ACmV's. If the reading is less than 350 ACmV's, remove the wheel speed sensor. Refer to the applicable Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement procedure in the ABS sub-section of the Service Manual.
5. Plug the wheel speed sensor bore in order to prevent debris from falling into the hub during service.
6. Clean the wheel speed sensor mounting surface using a wire brush, sand paper, emery cloth, scotch brite, or other suitable material. Be sure to thoroughly clean the wheel speed sensor surface. There should be no rust or corrosion.
7. Check the sensor head to determine if it has been warped/distorted due to the corrosion build up or other causes. Check the mounting surface on the sensor head for flatness by placing it on the edge of a metal machinists scale or other suitable straight edge to measure the flatness. Check the sensor for flatness in multiple (minimum 3) positions/directions. If the sensor head is distorted, replace the sensor.
8. Apply (spray) two thin coats of the specified rust penetrating lubricant (corrosion inhibitor) to the complete sensor mounting surface on the bearing hub. Allow to dry for 3-5 minutes between coats. Use ONLY Rust Penetrating Lubricant, P/N 89022217 (in Canada, P/N 89022218).
9. When the corrosion inhibitor is dry to the touch (about 10 minutes), apply a thin layer of bearing grease to the hub surface and sensor O-ring prior to sensor installation. Use ONLY Wheel Bearing Lubricant, P/N 01051344 (in Canada, P/N 993037).
10. Install either the original sensor or a new one in the hub. Ensure that the sensor is seated flush against the hub. Refer to the applicable Wheel Speed Sensor Replacement procedure in the ABS sub-section of the Service Manual.
11. Place the DVM across the sensor terminals and recheck the voltage while rotating the wheel. The voltage should now read at least 350 ACmV's.

I have a 2005 ext and experience this activation upon acceleration under 18kph. I shut down the traction control or take foot off accelerator then re accelerate after noise and vibration stops. I've had 1 speed control sensor replaced but dealership can't find fault codes. Do all dealerships have access to this bulletin 03-05-25-007D? I've paid too much so far to take it in for another no fault found diagnosis.

Yes they all have access to TSB information.
