I'm new to the this site, so if this has been discussed I apologize in advance. I did try searching first. I'm hoping someone may have experience with or knowledge about this reoccurring problem that I could pass on to the service department.
One night our XTS popped up a "Traction control off" message which was almost immediately followed by a "Service Stabilitrack" message. A few warning symbols also lit up then - the ABS , traction control and stabilitrak. Before getting home, suddenly a "Traction control on" message popped up, and all the warning symbols all turned off.
We made an appointment to take it in. Over that weekend, and on the way to the dealer, this would randomly happen. The messages pop up, warning lights light up, then later the "Traction control on" pop up and the lights turn back off. The service dept did some analysis and we were told that there was some shorting issue or something in a rear tire sensor. They changed out the rear hub assembly and we picked it up the next day.
On the way home it did it again. We called them again and made an appointment to take it in again. Later that week we picked it up and they told us that some connections just needed some cleaning. ( They had also changed out the front rotors and bake pads to take care of a brake squealing problem we were having.)
All was good driving it home this time. We didn't have to go out the very next day, but the day following we had to drive up to the airport to pick up our son and daughter-in-law. (I noticed on the way up that now the lane departure system isn't working, along with the car in front thing, but I'm guessing that is some other problem.) Anyway, on the way home same traction/stabilitrak problem popped up again.
The cruise control turns off once those traction/stabilitrak messages pop up with the accompanying warning lights, and this time we didn't get the "Traction control on" until we were almost home. Didn't realize how much I appreciate cruise control until I had to drive over an hour on the highway without it!
So, I guess it's time to make an appointment to take it in yet again, but at this point I'm wondering if their service department really has any idea of how to fix the problem. Anyone have any advise for me that I might pass on to the service dept?
