I wasn't talking about a misfire I was asking about stabilatrak
Saab Mechanic: Gary, Technician replied 1 year ago

the stabilatrak light will turn on when there is a check engine light on and a blinking check engine light as the stabilatrak can not operate correctly with a blinking check engine light

fixing the blinking check engine light will usually fix the stabilitrak light they usually go hand and hand
