    2007 STS right turn stability active message

    While making right turns I receive a "Stability Sys Active" message. Took it to Dealer where they charged me $120 for a calibration update because it was out of warranty (53k). Still does the same thing after the calibration update. So now I have a couple of questions ...

    1.) If a calibration file needs to be updated why am I paying. Its software.

    2.) Anyone else experiencing the same condition and if so did the dealer fix it?

    It may have set different codes. Most cheap code readers (and many used by parts shops) won't pull all the body codes from the STS.

    My guess is an issue with a wheel speed sensor or a heavy right foot.

    Mine does that only occasionally while turning right and going over bumps. It's never been bad enough for me to do anything about it.

    It is a little annoying with the temporary loss of power. I would also suspect a sensor. Hopefully they credit your repair bill with what you already paid since they didn't fix it.

    Still got the OEM Michelin bricks?

    Any tire over five years old is due for replacement. The car may be working perfectly.

    Yes I still have them. Been pleased with their performance so far. Customer service has contacted me and working to address the issue.
