#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.

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.

just today took the srx in to address the the stability system issue....there have been a number of recalls and apparently some coverage is available via the waaranty till 2013!
I agree though.....it is unsafe to drive and God help you if it comes on and you try to brake!
I will get a bill tomorrow I am sure and will update this post then.
The service managers first words were, "It's probably a sensor module in the steering column ...we will have to run a diagnostic for the codes".
Having read this as well as many other forums I was prepared and this seemed to improve the overall working relationship. I also asked for a print out he was able to get from the computer using my vin number and to my surprise offers a tremendous amount of information regarding the recalls, warranties and work done over the years...even the previous owners.
goof luck and will keep all up to date as this unfolds.

Mariah, If you look at all the posts here Dontbuycaddy is not the only person who has this problem. My 2004 Cadillac SRX V6 AWD has had this problem for a long time and no Cadillac Service center could find the problem. I have had the sensor replaced, tires changed and other stuff and the problem still happens. Except when I take it to the dealer and they could not reproduce the problem.

The email in that link appears to be very generic. Is there a more speicific email address or phone number where I can share my VIN?
