welcome to the club!!!
the only tempoary solution to your problem with the stability control is to push the little button next to the shifter and hold until your screen says the stability control has been turned off. It is important that you hold it down up to 30 seconds.
your lucky it is just the turn signal bulb....wait until the actual power unit goes...that will set you back about 250-300.00 (and there are 2 of them one for each side) and God forbid the rear tailight goes...that will run you about 400.00 because there are no bulbs...the entire unit is LCD and sealed. These costs are not dealer prices either..I have done them myself and purchased parts on line.
GET RID OF THE SRX NOW!!!
If interested I have a laundry list of other defects I have had to deal with in the past 12 months...wheel hubs, transfer case, power window motors, issues with shifter linkage etc.... and only 65,000 miles

Wow. This is worse than I though. The problem is... Unlike, GM/Cadillac, If I sold the car, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing someone else might be in danger driving it. Apparently the Cadillac/GM people don't have a problem with that. What is the world coming to?

I apologize for the problems you are experiencing with your vehicle. Have you spoken with GM Customer Assistance? If so, could you please email me your case number? I would like to look further into your situation.

IDONNER- Read my earlier posts to see what (in my opinion and based on my experience) is about to happend to you.
1. GM Customer service monitors the site and will contact you
2. They will ask you detailed questions, as if you know nothing about maintaining a car
3. They will likely say they cannot help, but will give you $1500 towards a new car (Ha!!!!)
4. Back to starting point, just more frustrated

I forgot to mention that the chain in the transfercase will be next. All of the jerking that is caused by the stability control lead to the failure of our transfer case. So funny, the GM dealer said they had no idea of what the problem was, but offered to fix it for $1800. I asked, so if you do not take it apart and look to find the problem, how can you provide a fixed price to fix it? They were speechless. Of course, GM had a taillight warranty (when you cannot see the tailights, the warranty is over), so I ultimatley took it to a professional that just does transmissions, and obtain a long term warranty.
GM- If you love the car so much, I will sell you mine. Not a thing wrong with it!! Ha!!!!!!!! I do not drive it (for fear of getting killed), but as soon as I can find a buyer (as is where is) its gone. Come on GM- make me an offer!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the heads-up. Has anyone ever alerted the media? Maybe if these issues were made public, we would get some action? I'm sure people would like to be forewarned that if they are ever driving behind me, my engine might shut off...or my car my suddenly jolt into oncoming traffic.

Yeah, maybe that will work, because my stability system message is on everyday, took it to the cadillac dealership, they lied to me and told me that they did a DT on it. Come to find out they didn't, which was told by the CSR when she was calling for feedback on how the service was the last time I visited. It's funny, everyone is having the same exact problems. Maybe we should take it to the media and maybe the cadillac dealership or whoever would do more.

I love my truck, because it looks gud on the outside, if I knew that all these problems would occur, I would have kept my Impala. Cadillac dealership, what a rip off. Can't trust anyone to fix the problem RIGHT. They are just in it for the money, not to have satisfied customers-and that's what makes a company, the satisfied customers.

CSmith2011-What did I tell you? GM cust Serv will now try to get you to be quite. Get ready for the discount off of a new GM (Government Motors) vehicle. I still have my SRX peice of crap, just can't seem to get rid of it. And GM certaily offered no help in repairs. Thanks, GM! Your actions really told me (and I do share it) what you are all about. In my opion- deception...
