I HAVE A 2008 CHEVY SILVERADO. IT SHUTS OFF WHILE DRIVING.

Customer Question

I HAVE A 2008 CHEVY SILVERADO. IT SHUTS OFF WHILE DRIVING. IT SAYS SERVICE TIRE PRESSURE MONITERING SYSTEM. SERVICE STABILITRAK SYSTEM AND ENGINE POWER REDUCED. WOULD THAT CAUSE IT TO SHUT OFF.
JA: Is the tire cold or warm? And are you using a decent pressure guage for the reading?
Customer: THE ONE TIRE DOESNT SHOW ANYTHING ON THE SCREEN. JUST A LINE THROUGH IT.
JA: Are you fixing your Silverado yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: THE DEALERSHIP IS SUPPOSED TO COME GET IT. JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY FIX IT RIGHT AND NOT JERK ME AROUND.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: THATS IT. JUST WONDERING IF THAT WOULD CAUSE IT TO SHUT OFF ON ITS OWN.

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 month ago.

Ok you have a few separate issues.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 month ago.

The tire issue is probably a bad sensor in the wheel.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 month ago.

The service stabilitrak could be a few different things, need a scan tool to get the codes. Same for the reduced power light. Need codes. This is most likely a throttle body issue. The two could be related as the stabilitrak uses info from the throttle body for throttle position.
