    suspension issues

    After This (please read) I decided to look into my car's problems

    For all the Time I owned this car I really thought I have MRC, the Harder ride and the stiff suspension, plus i read somewhere that i have one, if i remember currently it was from these one of these VIN PRO converter site?
    anyway, Now I love in a home not in an apartment, so I have my own garage and decided to lift the car and look for signs of trouble, I have this thing goin now, when I made hard turns, sometimes when i do that+ break the car things it's slipping, then it activate both stability control + traction control and stops the car, sometimes the car detect something after just getting the car out of the garage and give me the service stability control message,
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/cyxn1sj0gp...2017.12.47.jpg

    after I lift the car I noticed I have these:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/yo3v9nb1a2...2016.53.46.jpg
    and no cables are connected to them, and everything else looks good.
    so I took a picture of the codes sticker i have by lake cadillac:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/25yod9k9r3...2017.09.44.jpg

    you can see I have FE1 suspension not the FE3/F55,

    I have couple questions:
    1st : what do you think is wrong with my car? I mean I'll change the shocks but the traction control issue is started to be real pain in the butt
    2nd can you please translate the rest of the codes or give me some site where i can find these?

    thanks

    Re: suspension issues

    Go to your dealer's parts counter, be nice and the guy most likely will give you an RPO list. As to the messages, they probably left DTCs, so get them read and we may be able to tell what's going on.

    Re: suspension issues

    I have the OBDII bluetooth reader and there are no codes, history, pending or current, but not sure if my reader can detect Body,Chasis codes or not.
    I was trying to avoid the dealer as mush as I can, if you think I should go there then I'll probably just let them deal with it.

    Most parts stores can read body/ABS codes and do so free.

    I have the Bluetooth one also and they aren't capable of reading body and most manufacturer codes you need a good plug in cable scanner I got one with abs scanner for $100 on sale at harbor freight.

    You do not have magnetic ride.


    Sounds like a bad steering wheel position or yaw sensor.

    Yeah I noticed that I have FE1 (first post),
    now does anyone know how to get to the Yaw sensor ?
    all i got from the service manual is" To access the yaw rate sensor/lateral and longitudinal accelerometer move the passenger seat rearward. Carefully lift the carpet by the seam."

    what seam ? where?

    thanks

    Re: suspension issues

    There is a seam in the carpet under the seat, runs side to side. May help to remove door sill trim.

    You are welcome mjcaddy. I am sorry you have not heard from customer care last time you contacted them. I am more than happy to assist you with any question you may have. Would you still like me to provide you with your RPO codes? I can do so, if you message me your VIN. I can be reached via private message if you do not want to provide this publicly.

    Re: suspension issues

    if it is like the Corvette...GM decided to couple the wheel sensors with the wheel hub so you do have to replace the wheel hub to get a new sensor...my now traded C5 Corvette had Active Handling (Stabilitrak) codes, Brake codes and Traction Control and it was all a faulty sensor but it needs a new hub...I recall it was about a $350-$400 job at my mechanic around $250 for the part and labor)...good luck...sounds like CaddyDave called it...

    Re: suspension issues

    I had a similar problem with service stability messages and traction control engaging when it shouldn't. M advice.
    Go to the dealer and have them check for the problem. You may be able to fix it yourself after the diagnosis. I didn't do this and ended up replacing the steering whell position sensor and three wheel hubs. The problem kept surfacing. I finally brought it to my local Chevy dealer.

    They checked the continuity from the front right wheel hub to the main computer and found a fault there. I ended up replacing the wheel speed sensor wire (connector form the hub and splicing it in to the main line about 3 feet away) and problem solved. If I had done this first, I could have saved some money and time.

    The new wire cost $34.

    Re: suspension issues

    thanks guys for all the replies, most got this problem solved with the steering wheel position sensor replaced but I had issues with the wheel hub before so that made me think it can be anywhere now.
    I'll have to take it to the dealer, the only thing is i don't have time, I'll see if i get anytime off work this Friday just to drop the car there.

    cheers
    MJ
