The car accelerates as soon as you turn it on and it just keeps accelerating so we have to turn it of because it does not stop. The car was in motion when this happened.

problem #1

Escalade 8-cyl

  • 125,000 miles
The battery in my Escalade had been dying on me for a while. One day, my gauges all stayed stuck as if I was driving on the freeway. I drove it for a while until I was tired of jump-starting it almost everyday and I finally replaced the battery.the gauges all stayed the same. A few days went by and the battery started to die again. I realized that this was more than just a battery problem. I drove it 5 miles away from my place on the freeway and as I was coming back home it started to decelerate all on it's own. It marked "system stability disabled" and would not let me go over 25 mph. I have not driven it since November and would like to know what is going on with this. I read about a recall but this problem was supposed to be fixed since 2002 when the recall notice was sent out. As I have read the descriptions on what people's problems with this same type of vehicle was, I notice that it is exactly what is going on with my vehicle. (BCM recall 2002 #02066).
