Was it slippery on the ramp at all? Maybe the shift caused a low-traction situation and kicked on the stability control. How long did the light stay on?bestcar said:something like this happened to me on fri. coming off an entrance ramp speed between 45-55mph 1400-1600 rpm and accelerating car lurches and for a moment seems very confused as to what gear it should be in. dic comes up first w/ stabilitrak then w/ traction control message. called onstar imediately, they see no errors, after about 3 min. i can reset the dic. it did not recur over the weekend and i am taking it to the dealer tonite. i have a hard time believing this could be a cam shaft issue w/ the way the car lurched. 9/07 build date, 4150 miles... no gauge sweep. any thoughts?
hdpayne said:I have fallen into this category with our enclave. The message was displaying on the dash, but there were no codes available to Onstar. The message disappeared when the car was restarted. The dealer mentioned that it was a sensor. We dropped off the vehicle for a few days, and they did not find any additional issues. At least they gave us a 2012 Acadia for a loner. The dealer left the service ticket open in case the issue shows up again does not give me confidence that they have found the root cause.
Unless you are going to buy a vehicle over 10 years old, they all have computer systems that can fail. I believe almost all have some sort of stability control, and all have software that drives most the components, and computers can/will fail. No difference buying a Buick, or anything out there. All have to meet certain safety standards, so I wouldn't second guess purchasing anything these days....look at all the recalls, it's getting very strict these days.Pearl_Enclave said:Hello, I am new to this forum, however, the reason I joined was due to knowledge that has been shared here.
I am new owner to a 2008 Buick Enclave CXL and my issue is the stabilitrak/traction control indicator light.
We purchased our Buick in late December 2013 and it has been a wonderful car to own and drive. We had some trani issues at first, or so we thought...turns out it was a bad wiring issue and was easily fixed.
My concern now is why my stabilitrak/traction control light keeps coming on and stay on for about a minute and then goes off. It worries me because this is the vehicle I transport my daughter in. I am a soccer parent asell as a full time employee.
My reason for buying this vehicle was for the safety of my daughter.
Is this a common issue for this make and model? Should I be concerned? What are the general reasons for something such as this to occur.
I love my Buick. However I'm wondering if a lot of the issues I have read on here are in my future.
From reading previous info. here, I trust there are some very knowledgeable members that can assist me in figuring this Buick thing out.
