    When turning the service stability system is displayed and the car puts on the brakes all by itself. It has also happened at speeds of 35 mph and the brakes lock up and car slows to almost dead stop. I take foot off accelerator and cost and within seconds am able to apply gas again. Almost got me killed yesterday.

    I recall the message came up saying the Stability Control System. Had to take it to the my Cadillac Dealer and have the stability Control Sensor replaced, the sensor is in the steering wheel. it cost me about $500 +

    while driving about 35 miles or more the stabilizing service system kicks on, it feels like the car trying to stop while driving, and when you hit the brakes its like a vibrating feeling.

    Just had the car try and kill me the other day while accelerating and at about 30mph, it locked the front right brake and veered right, almost onto the shoulder. I braked manually and pulled over restarting the car and it was fine. Been getting a service stability system message every now and then, but no symptoms until now. Going to replace the steering wheel position sensor. Heard that is a common fix. Go to Rock auto to find the part. It is made by Airtex/Wells and can be had for around $75.
