This has been happening for a long time but now it has come back even worse then before. Ill be driving sometimes ill just randomly get service stability system and sometimes I can feel the car slowing down then get Stability Engaged then it will say Service Stability System.

What I need to know is if I unplug the Steering Position Sensor under the steering wheel, Will I lose Traction Control and ABS too or have any adverse effects other then getting a service stability message everywhere I start the car.

Also, I know for a fact is it the Steering Position Sensor.

You'll still have both ABS and TCS. They rely on the wheel speed/vehicle speed sensors.

Also, is the plug easily accessible from under the driver side?
====================
the Service Stability System message
could be set by a faulty Steering Position Sensor -

but I doubt it has anything to do with
I can feel the car slowing down then get Stability Engaged

check for codes -
I suspect wheel speed sensor issues -
or other chassis-related codes -

If i remember correctly the codes first started out as c1287 then progressed to c1286, c1282 and c1283

c1287- Steering Sensor Rate Malfunction
c1286- steering sensor bias malfunction
c1282- yaw rate sensor
c1283-Excessive time to center steering wheel

But c1287 and c1286 are usally current and the other 2 are almost always history

Never had any wheel sensor codes

------------------------
c1282- yaw rate sensor -
that's most likely the cause of the Stability Engaged message -

the faulty steering sensor
is usually the cause of the Service Stability System message -
