#80 of 185 2007 Chevy Tahoe Stabilitrak, Engine Light and 4*4 Service malfunction
Dec 23, 2012 (3:58 am)
My wife and I recently" A month ago" took our 2007 Chevy Tahoe into the local dealer to fix our rotor's. They fixed our rotors and within two days of getting the vehicle back, the "service tire pressure" light came on. We took it back into the dealer and they said it would cost 350.00 to fix the sensor. We paid to fix this issue. We got the car back and everything is running smoothly. So we decide to take a road trip to Yellowstone National Park which is about a 5 hour drive from where we live. It's snowing the whole way there, the car does fine the first day. The next morning the snow had died down and it wasn't bad, just cold. The roads were packed with snow but workers plowed the snow off the roads. We drive slow and safe, just sightseeing we get to a mountain pass and we are up high in the mountains and the roads are curving and all of the sudden the vehicle's stabilitrak, engine light and 4*4 service light comes on I hear three dings and all of the sudden my engine speed reduces, brakes fail and steering wheel locks now we are sliding on the road headed towards a cliff. My wife and I are freaked out "scared" I try “tapping” the brakes and somehow they work the car stops short of the cliff. So I turn off my engine, we sit there for about 15 minutes on this curvy road looking down a cliff. I turned on the engine everything runs like nothing had happen. If I hadn't tried the brakes, I’m sure we would've not been in a happy place right now. I decide on taking my vehicle in ASAP. I also have been researching this topic it seems many people have this same issue with their 2007 Tahoe’s as well. Has anyone figured how to fix this issue? I seriously do not feel safe driving this vehicle after this happened. Nor would I want my wife to drive by herself if this issue persists. I have been at work and not been driving my tahoe, my wife has been driving it for the past couple days and she needs to pull over turn off the engine then start it again. This situation was two days ago DEC 21 2012.

This is the second time this has happened to me. Worse today, was on the express and almost got hit by a semi as I was driving 70 miles per hr and the wheel locked up, the accelerator barely working. The truck showed Stability Trak Off and Reduced Engine Power. Almost did not make it to the shoulder. This is very scary due to having my newborn in the car.

Seems like GM has a really screwed up electronics situation with Stabilitrack . I had lots of trouble with it in my '04 Tahoe . Now that I am ready to buy new , I'll be acoiding GM . I've got a Tahoe & a Silverado . Both of them had rotted brake lines because they arte made of inferior material and positioned to collect road salt . They rotted out and failed in both vehicles while I was on the highway and could have killed us . Gm knows but never recalls . Shameless !

We are very sorry to hear about this condition with your Tahoe, nwesley, and are glad that everybody's okay after the highway incident. Are you working with a dealership or local mechanic to get this checked into?

I called today and the dealership stated "there could be a million reasons why it is doing that, we have never heard of that. You would have to bring it in for us to look at for service fee. Not very confident in the Service manager. but will bite the bullet and give it a shot. Im afraid that it will just be a waste of money since "we have never heard of that."

I purchased my first Tahoe last year. I'm a realtor and need a nice new large vehicle for driving clients to show property. I got the top of the line model and have kept the Onstar feature. For the past few weeks my Stabilitrak and traction control service light is coming on while I am driving then goes off after I pull over and restart the motor. It will not happen again for days. The OnStar monthly service report I receive does not indicate any issues. Any idea what is going on?
Also, my Tahoe constantly has this noise like a CD is spinning... even when the engine is off. The CD player is empty. The noise is getting louder and really irritating. Customers ask me about it all the time. Anyone else having this problem?

I hope that you have a lot of money available . Once the stealership gets going they really add it up . My brakes failed during a snowstorm --the lines had rotted through , and they got me for over three thousand dollars before I got my vehicle back . If you are not on warranty , you should go to an independent garage ,.

Im glad you are ok as well that is very scary. We have a 2005 Chevy Suburban and this must be the weekend for problems. We drove up north to see my parents for New Years. The snow wasn't to bad on the way up about a few inches in 6 hours but it wasn't steady. The service stabilitrak light came on and off a few times, we were braking more than usual but we kept out speed at a maintable level for the conditions. The next day it was fine never came on, today we drove a few miles to the grocery store and it happened again this time went off and on more than 6 times and the truck sounds like it is runing rough. The heat on the drivers side also is blowing cold air yet the rest of the truck is fine, obviously that is not related but just pretty odd. I will be watching this closely and taking the truck in when we get home. Due to NEw Years Im not sure any dealerships are even open tomorrow just hope we make it home safe on Tuesday. Good luck if you figure anythign out in the next few days please post it!
