If I power the car down and restart it, the error will usually clear, but often reoccurs. First item, driving stability light came on twice how to go to dealership for repair. The failure occurred everyday for the last two weeks. I have found that manually turning off traction control prevents this problem from happening. Plus the problem can linger a few days and then the guage will instantly jump to a correct reading and all will be ok, until next time. Now it's happening everytime I drive. Saw plenty of complaints online with this vehicle.
I could reproduce the problem reliably. The vehicle was not diagnosed by the dealer. Cannot accelerate in a timely fashion is a huge problem. The vehicle was not repaired. Thanks for asking, and thanks for your vote : Posted on Nov 30, 2010 chevroletforum. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. Reset the sensors anyways and adjusted the timing.
I see some say to replace the thermostat, but the temperature guage drops to lowest reading instantly, which tells me that the engine temperature is not actually changing. The car started sputtering and when I started to stop the brakes locked on and off as I came to a stop. There is still an issue. It had the problem prior to this, and still does. Lights and codes went off for about two weeks then popped back on upon making a left turn.
The abs warning light illuminated. I did have my Verus all hooked up and ready. Been doing this way too long! Then, I disconnected the battery, and when i reconnected it 20 min later it was back to normal. Last Thermostat change the error did not happen for a few months but started up again and we finally have cool weather. The vehicle was not repaired. It can be just the wire connections going bad but more often its the sensor.
The problem may be intermittent right now but this will need to be repaired. While driving various speeds, the contact heard an abnormal popping sound and the stabilizer traction indicator illuminated. The manufacturer stated that the issue could be due to the throttle body. I have gone on chevy Impala forums looking for other drivers who may have experienced this are there are a good number of them. It's not that hard to do yourself if you know what wheel is giving you the issues.
I am thinking the computer must be involved in this somehow. Once I got home I popped the hood and the engine seemed to be shaking. The contact stated that while attempting to move forward from a stop sign, the accelerator pedal was depressed but the vehicle failed to move forward as the brakes independently engaged. Because the dealer obviously could not resolve the issue had tire and brake expert shops look at the problem a few times. The manufacturer was notified and informed the contact that the vehicle was not included in a recall. The vehicle was taken to a dealer who diagnosed that a harness needed to be replaced. The problem would always disappear by the time I got to my destination until last week.
Its probably occurred 10 times in the last 6 months, 7-8000 miles. Those plus the other related tools such as a Jack, Jack stands, socket set ect. The contact stated that when refueling the vehicle, the fuel sensor failed and fuel spilled out as the mpg malfunction warning light illuminated. I have had the bearings replaced because of stabilitrak light. You do need some special tools that the average person might not have like a torque wrench and a 36 mm socket common size but might not be what you specifically need and A hub puller.
Connecticut isnt quite that cold. It almost locks on me when I'm driving and it scares me for my safety of my kids and myself in the vehicle. I have no problems in the summer, but on the coldest days after sitting all weekend it shows engine hot. I though it did it more in wet weather, but today is dry though yesterday rained. If you go the cheap part route on a wheel bearing you will end up replacing it again.
