Good evening. My name is***** see if we can figure out what is going on with your CTS. Are the messages you are receiving the SERVICE STABILITY SYSTEM and SERVICE BRAKE ASSIST? Also is your Check Engine light on? Has your vehicle had any running issues lately?

hello can I get a better answer?
Expert:  Joshua Davenport replied 4 months ago.

Ok. Sounds like there is a problem in the ABS system that is causing a problem. The codes will need to be checked with a code reader that can read ABS codes. The stability system and ABS system are controlled by the same computer on this vehicle. There could possibly be a pending code in the engine computer that can cause this problem. Some codes will not turn the check engine light on but it will cause the vehicles computer to disable certain systems. If the ABS has been disabled due to one of these codes it will display the same messages. It may be as simple as a sensor. The computers will need to be checked for codes to be able to get a starting point on what sensors to check.
