For the last few weeks my car has been displaying the "Service Stability System" warning. When the warning appears on the console, the brake seems to be vibrating quite a bit and the front lights seem to dim. It is happening more frequently. I have an upcoming trip to Wisconsin next week and I am worried about driving in the snow, but I have an appointment to diagnose on Saturday.

Has not been fixed. Where is the steering wheel sensor located?
How do I get to the spark plugs on this vehicle?

The stability system light constantly comes on and the car will swerve slightly. Also when braking, sometimes the light will interfer with a smooth breaking.

I just bought this vehicle, and when I test drove it, that was on the screen on the car, it said Service Stability. I asked the owner about it, and he said it was nothing, he would check it out for me. He has not done that. Engine light also came on, after I drove it for 2 days. I noticed after I got gas in it, that it did not want to start at first, and then it started and seemed at first to cut out, and then it started running fine. Engine light remained on. The next time we filed it up, it did the same thing about starting right away. We took it back to the dealer, they said it was an oxygen sensor, bought it home and with in 5 days engine light was back on. Took it back, they said it is a purge valve, they say they have fixed it and engine light is off. But I just saw this about the Service Stability Message and now I am wondering if this is a serious problem also. Should I address the dealership about this too. It was on there when I paid for the car. What are your thoughts.
On very cold days message "Service Stability System" displays. Had it checked ($330.00) said it was a sensor, probably the steering wheel sensor.....cost in Canada $600 and install $200. Think I will just wait for warmer weather.

Message says Service Stability. I need to press ok to clear message. Message appears every so often every other day. Mechanic is asking $100 for steering angle (position?) sensor, and 2 hours of labor at $100 each, therefore $300 to change it.

The dealership replaced my sensor, but the problem still exists. The always said they could not duplicate the problem.
