I have a 2006 chevy trailblazer ss. I took it to the shop…

Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 chevy trailblazer ss. I took it to the shop yesterday for an oil change. They said the lower control arm needed replaced. I picked the car up and drove it a short distance and the stability track light cam on the dash and car went into limp mode. The shop returned and picked up. Today they said the steering wheel positioning sensor needs replaced. They replaced it. Now they cannot get the ebcm to reprogram keeps showing codes c0196 and c0455. Any ideas as to what is wrong? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

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

Which fuse are you refering to?

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

No the car is at the shop. Mechanics cannot figure out why the ebcm will not reprogram

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

No that is all thank you
