Ok, so driving to KC last night (BTW we made it fine) at about 2am in a driving rain storm somewhere around Terre Haute indiana my trac control button starts ticking (audible tick) then my anti-lock light comes on on the dash and the traction control goes dead with a DIC warning of Service Stabilitrak System. Not good I think to myself as the rain is pouring down at 80mph about 35 degrees outside wondering if its going to turn to snow. We stopped a few times and each time I turned off and restarted the car the diagnostic ran fine and as soon as i drove forward about 10 feet or so I get the warning and the trac control goes dead.
Here is the kicker. This morning after letting it sit for about 5 hours I go out to check fuses and what not, play with the wheel speed sensors etc...and dont find anything wrong. I called a local pontiac dealer to get it looked at but he is booked until Monday. So I decuded ti drive to a gas station and get some food items when low and behold no warning, no errors, car is working fine. i turned off the traction, did a short tire squak, turn the trac back on, laid into it, the stabilitrak kicked in just fine. I am at a total loss here. When i needed it most it konks out and now that we are here its working fine.
