JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

I replaced the peddle break switch ect and two weeks later it's doing it again. Code 2101 1516 , I'm wondering if it has something to do with the accident at this point . Was very minor .

To took it to another mechanic Thursday , he's been driving it since. I cleared the codes to get it there and it seems he hasn't gotten it to do it since then.
Apparently waiting is what happens around here. Since it's now a waiting game once again I'll be picking it up today to pull the throttle body and have it tested.
It had about 8 codes when I replaced the tire and they cleared them then also . It happened again as I drove home after that so I cked it and it had 4 but after I turned it off and hooked it back up it had 2 codes 2101 and 1516 .
Really frustrated !
The only other thing I think of is something happened when the replaced the fender and we'll cover as there is a sensor above .
3 months has passed and no one can figure this out.

Is it possible to remove the stablitrac from the vehicle completely ?
I've really no need for it anyway.
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 8 months ago.

Do you need the diagnostic steps for those codes?

To my knowledge there is no way to completely remove the stabiltrac system from the vehicle.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Is there a way to completely disable it ?
I live in Florida and I just don't see a need for it at all. If it's this much trouble now I'd rather not deal with it again.
I've looked up everything on the codes , and everything seems to be working fine. Hasn't thrown it again since last Thursday.
Picked it up today and it doesn't seem to have the power it had before . It being the 6.0 it feels more like is a 4 banger .
6 k in it so far , not sure what else to do with the stabilatrac problem
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 8 months ago.

Stabiltrac is in relation with the ABS. You would have to disable the ABS which is going to bring on many other issues.
