#246 of 261 I'm also getting a service stabilty reading
Feb 19, 2013 (1:34 pm)
I just had my wife tell me she was on the highway driving 60 miles an hour and the brakes came on and the car diverted to the side. She said that this experience really scared her and she didn't feel safe . She told me that the service stabilty message came on the display. The next day i took her car for a test drive and noticed the service stabilty message coming on. I then went on the internet to get an idea about what this problem could be and i was shocked to notice all the complaints coming from different individuals about the same problem. My srx was bought new in 2004 it only has 59000 miles it is basically used by my wife to commute to the train station and to drive the kids around town. I used to be a sevice tech for a major service store, before i even approached a customers house , i already knew what the problem was because of the hidden service flash on the computer. This seems to be a common problem that GM knows about and they are keeping quiet. I think this problem should be either a recall or a message sent out to owners because the consequences of this problem can cause serious harm or eventually death to a cadillac owner. I dont think GM wants to lose a cadillac owner to mercedes or Lexus. That's just what i think
#247 of 261 2011 Cadillac SRX Stability Control Issue
Feb 26, 2013 (10:03 pm)
2/26/2013: Today my 2011 SRX ( 27k miles) reduced its speed from 65 to 11 miles per hour (max) after experiencing a fault message of Stability Control Failure. The engine light was on and a message stating that the engine power was being reduced. Highway traffic was whipping by at 75 miles per hour, fortunately the roadway had a shoulder lane. The car was dropped off at the nearest dealer for repair. From reading similar blogs/forums, It sounds like the sevice dept will not find anything to fix. Nervous about using this car for any trips, unless they pinpoint and fix the problem.

Re: msg # 248, posted by dryoungII on Feb 27th, 2013.
dianostic of the message center "Stability Control Warning", causing the engine power to be reduced", on my 2011 Cadillac SRX, was caused by the accelerator position sensor. in addition, the "passenger airbag off" was illuminated and the check engine light on. Vehicle was returned to owner on March 2nd. Repairs were made under the factory waranty.

We're glad to hear that you do have an appointment set up to get this checked into.
Just for some further information for you on why your dealership asked whether the light was staying on or if it was on and then off. The indicator/warning light will flash when the StabiliTrak or traction control system is working to control the vehicle on a low traction surface, but stays on if there is a problem with that system in the vehicle.
Looking forward to updates!

I have an 04 SRX that continually had the "Stability System Engaged" show on the display and finally got to a point where it would initiate the breaking system to slow the vehicle. Quite scary and dangerous when moving at 65 and it drops you to 30 in a matter of seconds. After much trial and error over a 3 month period, it ended up being a steering sensor (about $200.00 with labor). The computer kept diagnosing as a break sensor (about a $900.00 sensor + labor) which they replaced 1st. Have not had a problem (knock on wood) since they replaced the steering sensor.
