Any time I get above 2nd gear, crusing or on highway my stability system engaged light goes off and on repeatedly, maybe once or twice a minute!!! Not a huge deal but scary cuz sometimes it REALLY kicks in and jerks the car! I already took it in once for this problem, but they obviously failed to fix it, so I guess Im going to have to drop it off and give them some ideas where to look, lol. I did a search and it seems like it may be a faulty "steering sensor" Does this sound accurate and is this the accurate term I should use? Any ideas would be appreciated.

p.s. - I got the spectre spoiler, heat extractor hood, B&B xpipe and headers, no cats:)...installed this week...WOW...love it:thumbsup: I have stock wheels and tires 80% tread) with sensors for 500 bucks if anyone wants em, you pay shipping. Also have the stock hood or exhaust if anyones interested..thanks guys!

Put up a picture and a sound track if you can.

sometimes I have seen a tire pressure decrease / wheel sensor cause a glitch. If it is under warranty take it in. I had one act up before and it was the front wheel sensors..

Steering position sensor or wheelspeed sensor is the likely culprit. Low pressure or faulty monitor would only disable comp. driving mode, not trigger Stabilitrak.

I had the yaw sensor go bad in my Yukon, causing the stabilitraq to go nuts. Perhaps that's your issue. The symptoms sound about the same.

On a side note, early B&B exhausts with X Pipe caused a resonance that made the system go nuts sometimes too. If this started happening after you installed the B&B, then that meay be the issue. I think the fix was to use rubber isolators or something. Do a search if that's the issue. I also think the newer B&B systems have addressed this issue.

yeah I have the new B&B with the resonators up front. Andy YES, the issue was before I put on new wheels, and before the exhaust...so I know thats not it. Thanks for your help guys, ill point them towards the sensors and see what they say, appreciate your help

probably not the Steering sensor, youd see it backing out of your driveway or even at standstill just turning the wheel.

I had the same issue and it was the steering wheel sensor.
