1998 Cadillac El Dorado V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic
"Service Stability System" alert appears on DIC. Simultaneously a weird undercarriage noise is heard. Appears to be coming from the left front of the vehicle.
Also simultaneously the brakes seem to operate momentarily, then releases. Steering also seems to be affected momentarily.
The dealer says the codes indicate two problems: (1) Steering Wheel Centering, and (2) Defective Stability System Module. ($1,300 for parts, minimum $500 labor.
I am not a mechanic, but this diagnosis seems to contradict logic. Logic tells me that the module is simply identifying a mechanical problem, not causing it.
have the same problem?
