The contact owns a 2005 Cadillac Srx. The contact stated that while driving 45 mph, the stability control warning light illuminated. The contact stated that when the failure occurred, the vehicle would vibrate and the steering wheel would stiffen. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer but the dealer could not diagnose a failure with the vehicle. The contact did not call the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 100,000.

The contact owns a 2005 Cadillac Srx. The contact stated that the traction control would activate abnormally, when it was not engaged by the contact. The failure would cause the contact to lose control of the vehicle. The vehicle was inspected by the dealer who advised that the they would reprogram the vehicle. The vehicle was reprogrammed but the failure recurred within a few days. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and they offered no assistance. The failure mileage was approximately 40,000.

My 2005 cad Srx stability system light is coming on recurring. Mechanics can't figure out the problem and just keep resetting the sensors. The car lurches and brakes itself on the highway and I'm afraid of an accident.

Cadillac Srx stability system/traffic control engages unpredictably and appears to engage anti-lock brakes causing the SUV to seize up and fight against the accelerator. This has occurred 1/2 dozen times in very dangerous traffic areas and dealership does not know how to fix it (and are charging me for their troubleshooting labor).
