SERVICE STABILITY SYS
Refer to ABS Description and Operation in Antilock Brake System ! You need to take it an have DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes read ! That will point you to a diagnostic path !
Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES)
The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) adds an additional level of vehicle control to the electronic brake control module (EBCM).
Yaw rate is the rate of rotation about the vehicle's vertical axis. The VSES is activated when the EBCM determines that the desired yaw rate does not match the actual yaw rate as measured by the yaw rate sensor.
The desired yaw rate is calculated from the following parameters:
?€¢
The position of the steering wheel


?€¢
The speed of the vehicle


?€¢
The lateral, or sideways acceleration of the vehicle

The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. If the yaw rate error becomes too large, the EBCM attempts to correct the vehicle's yaw motion by applying differential braking to the appropriate wheel. The amount of differential braking applied to the left or right front wheel is based on both the yaw rate error and side slip rate error.
The VSES activations generally occur during aggressive driving, in turns or on bumpy roads without much use of the accelerator pedal. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal pulsations feel different than the ABS pedal pulsations. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation.
If you do not know about this , I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop that does !

SOURCE: service stability system

one of the four load stability sensors (one at each wheel suspention arm) has gone awry. Computer diagnostics (Advanced scan tool) will tell you which one. Suggest replace both on front or both on rear (whichever the case)

SOURCE: CTS in dash navigation system

There is a company called PAC that specializes in modules like you describe - keeping the steering wheel controls functional with an aftermarket radio.

Click HERE to visit their site. You have to choose a compatible manufacturer. Basically - it is turning the steering wheel controls into a "remote" hidden in the dash.

CLICK HERE for the PAC installation guide for the 2006 CTS

For best results and compatibility, look for a shop in your area that carries PAC - it is a common manufacturer in the BIZ, and have them install it.

The simple answer to your question is YES as long as you use the module compatible for the brand of radio you are installing.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated for taking the time to answer your FREE question.

Whenever this warning or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module has detected a fault, it then disables the system as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Get your system checked for malfunction codes. Sounds like there is water entering the sensor harnesses under the vehicle. Doesn't take much to set off the malfunction light.

It could just be a software issue with your EBCM. You can have it reprogrammed at the dealer. Those particular cars tend to have that issue.

Hi,I have a 2002 Escalade and my Service Stability System light came on. What does it mean and how much will it cost to fix it? misspatty411@yahoo.com


Service Stability System light comes on when your tires are not gripping the road correctly, this assumes that the truck is sliding and the driver had no control. From what I noticed with mine is that it will disable power to the transmission untill traction is regained around 10 to 20 seconds. I had to shift to netural then back to drive to re-engage the trans. This is a saftey feature that I was impressed with. I paid about 300 to have the dearler replace the part, but I'm quite sure you can get it fixed for less.

a good chance it would be a wheel speed sensor you have four of them one at each wheel. you get that message when the computer senses a difference in wheel speed making it think that the wheels are spinning at a different rate of speed which will cause that fault to show up. hope that helps
