Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual: Ride Control System Messages

SERVICE STABILITRAK

This message displays if there is a problem with the StabiliTrakĀ® system. A warning light also appears on the instrument cluster.

See Traction Control/Electronic Stability Control on page 9-28.

If this message turns on while you are driving, pull off the road as soon as possible and stop carefully. Try resetting the system by turning the ignition off and then back on. If this message still stays on or turns back on again while you are driving, the vehicle needs service. Have the system inspected by your dealer as soon as possible.

SERVICE TRACTION CONTROL

This message displays when the Traction Control System (TCS) is not functioning properly. A warning light also appears on the instrument cluster. See Traction Control/ Electronic Stability Control on page 9-28. Have the TCS serviced by your dealer as soon as possible.

STABILITRAK OFF

If the vehicle has StabiliTrak, this message displays when you turn off the StabiliTrak, or when the stability control has been automatically disabled. To limit wheel spin and realize the full benefits of the stability enhancement system, you should normally leave StabiliTrak on. However, you should turn StabiliTrak off if the vehicle gets stuck in sand, mud, ice, or snow and you want to rock the vehicle to attempt to free it, or if you are driving in extreme off-road conditions and require more wheel spin.

See If the Vehicle Is Stuck on page 9-9. To turn the StabiliTrak system on or off, see Traction Control/Electronic Stability Control on page 9-28.

TRACTION CONTROL OFF

This message displays when the Traction Control System (TCS) turns off. See Traction Control/Electronic Stability Control on page 9-28.

Any of the following conditions may cause the TCS to turn off:

  • The TCS is turned off by pressing the TCS/StabiliTrak button. See Traction Control/ Electronic Stability Control on page 9-28.
  • The battery is low.
  • There is a TCS failure. See your dealer for service.
