I was driving North on interstate 95 in miami, Florida, I changed lanes and could no longer control steering, car seem to go the way it wanted to. It steered to left to the right back to the left across 3 lanes of traffic and I ended up going southbound in the northbound lanes. With the help of god I was able to put the car in park, start it up again, back up, turn it around and head the right way, which was northbound, considering the traffic on I-95 I should have been hit by numerous cars during that time, but with god's help it didn't happen. I noticed on dashboard that it stated to service active handling. I decided to do some research and there have been numerous complaints related to this same incident and some recalls also. My life could have taken during this incident. I had just purchased 2 new front tires and 2 rear shocks for my car before this happened only 6 days before, car has always been kept in good running condition.

The problem started as a highly intermittent warning that the ABS, traction control, and active handling suspension system needed to be serviced. It would usually go off by shutting the car off and restarting it. Couldn't locate the problem. This year when I took the car out it reset once and then stayed on. Diagnosed it, generated dtc error code C1214, indicating a bad power relay inside the ABS unit. The car now has just over 40,000 miles. To answer an obvious question, yes the problem did occur a few times while driving but it occurred primarily when starting the car. Searching the internet it seems that this is a common problem across a large range of GM vehicles using this specific ABS system made by delphi. It requires replacement F the ABS unit to repair.
