I have a 2005 SRX with 44000 miles. We live in northern Michigan and get a lot of icy road conditions. The Stability warning has been showing up, but not every time we drive the car? My wife had it come on when she parked on a icy down hill parking space. I called the local dealer and he said I could just ignore it. The dealer also said that the fix is not covered because my car is older that five years.
I can live with it as long as there is no danger. My wife and I have over sixty years of GM service and would like to continue to support GM. With everything that is going on with the screwing of the salary work force and rewarding the UAW, I think it is time to consider buying a Lexus. I never thought that I would say this.

I own a 2004 Cadillac SRX V8 and am having the same problem. A message stating "service stability system" comes on every time I drive it. Twice the brakes have locked and made me skid in traffic. I have taken it to a local dealer who said "three different codes came up but we're not certain what the problem really is it will be OK to drive it we'll make some inquiries and get back to you." From what I've read, there needs to be a recall or something done~I would be willing to join a class action suit~this appears to be unsafe and I'm really not comfortable with "it will be OK to drive it."

I have written in this thread several time already. I have a 2004 SRX AWD. I always get the Stability System Engaged" Message with some vibration. Sometimes when I step on the brake it appears that the gears are not aligned. I would get a grunting sound then the "griding" would disappear. I have replaced the steering wheel sensor, wire harness has been repositioned. I replaced tires. Once thing I noticed when the temperature got cold here in Indiana the problem disappeared. Yesterday the temp went back to about 38F and the problem came back. I drove from my house in Carmel to Kokomo and all the Stability System Engaged symptoms were back.
MAJOR PROBLEM IS THAT THE DEALERS DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM

WHY CAN'T WE REPORT THIS PROBLEM TO THE NHTSA AND MAYBE WE COULD GET GM TO SOLVE OUR PROBLEM.AND WORKED ON IT UNDER WARRANTY.
#57 of 261 SRX Stability Control Issue
Apr 11, 2010 (12:34 pm)
I just filed a compliant about our 2004 Cadillac SRX's Stability Control Issues on the NHSTA site yesterday 04/10/2010. The site was easy to use it took about 5 minutes to file my compliant.
Over the past 120 days I've had my 2004 SRX at the Cadillac store a half dozen times with this issue, they've already replaced the steering speed sensor, I've got stock tires and the problem still exists.
On Saturday without warning the system engaged and jerked me off the road.
#58 of 261 2004 SRX Traction Control Light
May 08, 2010 (10:03 am)
Four times over the past three days my 2004 SRX traction light has come on. When this happens, I lose the ability to accelerate the gas. The motor continues to run but very roughly. When I turn off the car and restart it, everything seems to be fine. Is this the same problem as the stability issue that I am reading on this site? Also, I have been hearing a "rubbing" sound for the past two months. Any ideas what may be happening? I'm very nervous about driving my car!

Exactly the same has been happening to me. It is very frightening when it happens at 75 mph. Dealer couldn't "recreate the problem", that will be $150 please. The list of problems I've had is too long to put here. At least I now know what the problem is and can tell the dealer to fix it. How do we get GM to listen to us? Lesson learned - never buy the first model year of anything. Bought mine new and just put it in the shop again today for bad ignition coil. Fun.

We bought our car 2 years ago and it has been a piece of crap ever since. The turn signal on the drivers front keeps going out and we have had that fixed 2 times. We have had the STABILITY SYSTEM ENGAGED message coming up for about 6 months. I have spoken to several car dealerships and they say there is not a recall for that YET. Of course! They are telling me $500 to replace a sensor if that is the problem but I am not sure with everything that I have read if that will be what fixes it. It jerks you around on the road when the message is displayed. I am scared to even drive the darn thing.I am ready to file a class action law suit.. If anyone is actually moving forward with one please post the information on this message board. I will NEVER buy a Cadillac again and if you are thinking of doing so, be ready for major problems!!

I just seen your post about the 2004 SRX. sounds like alot of people have had the same problem. What are you thinking of doing? I hate to not feel safe in what I drive.
Maybe I should try and trade it just to get rid of the problems. Ours is a V8 and we live in Texas, so it won't pass the inspection test until we get something done. It infuriated me that so many people have had the same issue but they won't step up and fix the problem.
