Ok so I have a '03 Escalade with 112k, which I just purchased month ago. Yesterday check engine light came on and passed by a shop he connected the reader and said it was a air mass sensor that i need to replace, he reset the check engine light said if it comes up again to bring it in, also mentioned could need a tuneup since he said looks like plug wires are still original and most likely so are plugs...i shouldve got the code but totally forgot at that moment.

Now, today Stability System Disabled message came on.will i damage anything if i keep driving with it, does it go away? Right now I dont really feel no difference in car ride..

Im looking for a mechanic in my are to take it to i previously has a bmw and took it my mechanic but he dealt with european cars this is a cadiilac... so might be a difference...trying not to take it to a dealer since i knwo i'll probably get raped with their prices.

What do you guys suggest i do in terms of both issue??/

thanks!

The mass air flow sensor most likely needs cleaning(these 6.0s are picky about that)
The stability disabled message can be anything (mine threw this message on long trips and it was the module firmware(dealer only)
As far as a dealer any gm dealer can service it as the power train is the same as the other gm stablemates(this is a truck based suv)

That tuneup isn't hard to do I replaced my plugs in my driveway(didn't need wires as mine are good)I got the gm professional iridium plugs worth the money (if you have 100.000 or more miles then new plugs is a need)

You won't notice any difference or damage anything driving the truck like this most likely its the firmware needing updated in the ebcm mine did like this I had the firmware updated and it hasn't done it since

The p code is most likely the mass air flow sensor(need the full code to be sure since there is109 p0100 codes
The c0283 is for the the Stabilitrack system switch(its the button with the car with lines behind it)
Mine would throw a service stability system message on long trips(yet throws a odd code) the dealer updated the firmware on the ebcm module and it fixed the issue so check with a dealer with this

The c0196 is also for the ebcm

I am going to guess the ebcm(electronic brake control module) is in need of replacing I would get to a dealer since the module may be going nutty
