Customer Question
I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 Chevy Impala SS. I keep getting a Stablitrak light that flashes on occasionally. Also, my radio and all lights (headlights), dash lights, interior lights, radio light etc will go out for a few seconds and then come back on. I had my brakes worked on last month so not sure if there is something that they did that is causing the problem. Seems to happen when I am turning on brights, using my turn signal, or braking. Anything that causes me to use an additional lighting fixture of the car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

What fuses should I check?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Impala SS yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am not mechanically inclined with cars so haven't tried anything yet.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That should be everything

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Can you monitor the battery voltage for me while turning electrical things on and off? Does it ever go above or below 13-15 volts?
