She came home after work, no problems. When the Service traction Control and service Stablilatrack flashes back and forth, combined when engine light flashing which usually means the vehicle is misfiring. I just want a safe and reliable car for my family without loosing any money. Please let me know if this works for you as I really would like to keep track of this not only to save people money but to keep them safe. They cleared the codes and test drove — shows normal. This morning my car is back at the dealership because the check engine light is back on. Thank God someone finally listened — of course, with a threat! The steering wheel felt very heavy and stiff.
I was just wondering if anyone else had had a similar experience as me and if they figured out what the issue was. You saved me hundreds of dollars and I to was ready to trade this money pit in. Within a few weeks of that service the Stabilitrak service light came on. I just hate that someone else will buy my car and have the same problem. In a nutshell this has happened close to 10 times if not more.
We brought this issue to the owners of the dealership and they asked us to take it to their mechanic so he can work on it. The dealer could not tell exactly which parts were causing the issue. My shop said the computers needed to be checked again. Dealer gave me a new Acadia to use for the week. They said they have to spend more time and I have to leave the car for couple of days. The failure mileage was 90,000.
Technician should be advised Windshield reduces Ultraviolet ra. Again running extremely rough but did not act like it wanted to die. Nothing is covered in the powertrain warranty that I still have for another 30k miles. Does this qualify for the Lemon. I have replaced all spark plugs and caps all injectors bar and wires, still and issue and still the same codes This car is a piece of junk. Technician may also find a Diagnostic Trouble Code P0521 in the Engine Control Module.
Start by having the vehicle , and use that information to help the diagnosis. It seems that whatever they do to the car only last a 2 or 3 weeks, whan the light comes on again. Cars, slamming on their brakes, beeping. The car starts to die out when I'm driving it then I have to turn it off then restart it. I was scared, but had about 8 miles to drive to my home town.
Been to Dealership for over a week and a few other side mechanics a few times, they all saw it happen but dont know what it is. Nothing else happened and I made it home but I am furious…So this time I am bringing it to my dealer in the morning…. Both kept flashing on and off. Service Stabiltrak light and Engine Power Reduced light came on. They could never seem to find any problems. While driving last night the Stabilitrak light,check engine light, and warnings for reduced engine power.
StabiliTrak ® automatically intervenes when it senses loss of lateral traction. Very scary moment of my life. Each time I get a different answer as to what the problem is the first time. Luckily my exit was about 8 miles away but that was the scariest 8 miles of my life!. She goes for 60 to 25 just like that!! Next day at 530 pm my abs brake light came on as well as the stabila track light.
So now I will be contacting my insurance company as well. When I turned the car on, after 2 minutes, I received the same message. At least 6 to 8 times. Then today im at lunch sitting in park listening to the radio and all of a sudden my truck starts vibrating and shaking like im driving a tractor or something. Now, six months later, I am having yet more problems…. I am a retired mechanic. As I began to cross I was in the cross-hairs of a trash truck on one side and a car on the other.
Most recently, two nights ago, I was driving on the interstate at 80 mph and noticed that all of the interior lighting started mildly pulsating. I have tried about every resource I can think of to get this dealer to correct this. This is all within a 2 year period. One of the times the vehicle flashed all of those warnings, the lights came on and the car died, while I was driving. I immediately called my dealership and made an appointment for tomorrow! I basically have a car that Is going to power down the engine at some point, it can very scary on the highway? My Stabilitrak light comes on, along with the malfunction light and I get power rudction also. Gas mileage is awful when this is going on.
Im assuming it is an internal engine problem again. You need to fight for your rights. A few days later it happened again. At the dealer they said the throttle body needed to be replaced but was not covered under the power train warranty. Needless to say, I called the service and sales managers to see what they can do for me. The day before I got these messages, I had changed my car's oil, and since I had spilled some, I was using a water hose to spray under my vehicle and close to the passenger tire. My son took the Impala to the dealer service yesterday and purchased his 2 tires- it was agreed by service manager that if we took the car there and bought tires from universal that he would put them on, do an alignment and most important install the camber bolt kit at no extra charge.
