Hey guys my 2007 v8 sts keeps setting off engine codes. In the past 3 months it has been in the shop 3 times already. While driving,:bonkers: the check engine light goes on along with the traction control turns off while the car looses power. Then when I park it, im in park and the dash is chiming and saying shift into park along with the headlights not shuuting off. My dealer is really pissing me off and just reflashing t the computer until it does it again a few weeks later. Does anybody know what the hell is going on.

What codes is it actually getting?
Need the codes before you can do much trouble shooting.

When the SES light comes on for an engine miss malfunction, it will turn off the traction control and the stability system, because neiter will operate properly without full power capability.

But, you still need the code. Next time it comes on, call OnStar and ask them to run a diagnostic check for you.
