: the contact stated that the left front anti-lock brake locked up when a left turn was made while traveling 15 mph. The contact stated that the service stability system light illuminated once a week. The vehicle came equipped with hydraulic brakes. The left front anti-lock brake lock up occurred on a dry pavement. The contact stated that the vehicle does not lock up everytime a left turn is made. The vehicle was taken to the dealership for inspection several times. The dealership could not determine what caused the problem. Updated 09/05/06.

Stabilization equipment makes vehicle loose all power for 5-10 seconds, makes a horrible noise and slides down the hill without any way to control vehicle. I have test driven with dealer on four separate occasions after repairs. Dealer advises a serious safety hazard. GM says there is no problem just wait for new computer software program to be released. I have almost been in a collision each time driving the vehicle going home daily. The dealer is standing by me but is having problems; the area representative larry marvin. The car was purchased on 09/21/03 and has less than 500 miles.

While driving down the road service stability track message would appear on the dashboard message center. That would then disable the traction control system. An audible ding-ding would sound about every thirty-seconds as you were driving down the road. The button on the dash was inoperable and would not shut off the system. Cadillac advised my dealer that I would have to wait for the 2004 models to be released to get the problem fixed. When vehicle was in the shop to be fixed it was also found that the ABS module needed to be replaced because that was not functional. I had 50 miles on the vehicle when the problem was first noticed.
