After about thirty minutes with the truck warming up while driving, stabiltrak and traction control kick off. Seems to be heat related. Got codes 0710 and 0455. Steering sensor fail. Haven't taken it the dealer yet. Well maintained and I'm the original owner. Help!!!
Service Stabili Trac and Traction Controll both started coming on. Took it into dealership they told me it was the Steering Wheel position sensor because of the codes my vehicle displayed
when truck sets overnight all is good. when it sets for 10 hours at work the message for traction control and stabilizer and ABS warning light comes on.

The service stability track and traction control message plus traction control off warning light. It would reset its self overnight and turn back on after driving a few miles. Took to dealer service and codes said bad steering position sensor. $277.00 part and labor.

This is a major safety issue in my book !
Stabilitrak and traction control light stayed on and service need light came on. Took to dealership and advised Steering Angle Sensor in Steering Colum needs replacing.

stabiltrak light and traction control light came on at same time
Intermittant warning came up to Service stabilitrack. Seems to work in cold weather and stays on during spring and summer. Been having issue for 6 months.
Stabiltrak, service traction control warning. Took to dealer, replace steering wheel position sensor.
Stabilitrack and service traction control light come on when driving and does not go off until vehicle is shutdown. but reappears when driving also vehicle hard to come out of park when that light is on you have to shut vehicle down and wait until you start it again to try to get it out of park
I just had this occur with my 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT with less than 50,000 miles. Because I bought the truck as a GM certified vehicle, the dealer covered the repair even though I was just slightly out of the warranty. Good thing, the part alone (Wheel position Sensor) is $200.00. Add to that the diagnostic time as well as the labor to replace it and the repair would have cost between 400 and 500 dollars
