    "Stability System Engaged" message on dash. almost "cuts out" on the highway. 04 3.6L

    Sorry to repost something thats probably already been answered, but I have been digging for a relevant answer to our issue for a few hours to no avail. My boyfriend just called from work and said that hes currently driving on the highway and every once in a while the dash will read "stability system engaged" and the car almost seems to cut out for a second. ive read a ton of things about having issues with the ABS and such when it says that, but nothing about this. he had the traction control on but shut it off and must still be having the issue because when i called back with a possible fix he didnt say it stopped. could it be the seemingly notorious steering wheel positioning sensor that seems to be the culprit in other stability system issues? or something else? anyone else had this problem or know the cause?


    thanks so much.

    well to allow drivability he can press and hold the T/C button down for about 10 seconds and the car will turn off the Stability control and Traction control systems until you are able to determine the cause of the issue.

    I think you have it covered, wheel sensor or steering position sensor.

    Not necessarily, It could be the steering position sensor, yaw sensor under the passenger seat, wheel hub speed sensor ( in any of the 4 hubs) abs cable problem from wheel sensor, etc. It's best to have any stored codes read to determine what could be causing the problem.

    Well I said two of the 3 you did and I cant remember anyone having a yaw sensor ever fail.

    If we want to split hairs it could be a pile of other stuff too but none worth mentioning at this point.

    If you want to know what's wrong, get your DTCs read and report back, no more guessing.
