Service Traction Control - Stabilitrak and ABS light, Help
2007 Suburban 5.3 LTZ
Started up the burban tonight and I have Service Traction Control - Service Stabilitrak and ABS light is on, I'm sure they are all related any ideas?
I searched and found something about a dealer computer upgrade? Does this fall under my 2007 powertrain warranty?

I do live in the North East Near Syracuse, NY I drove 240 highway miles yesterday 40 degrees. I thought maybe a wheel speed senser has gone bad. I think that would affect the Traction Control - Stabilitrak and ABS.
I went to the self serve car wash gave all my wheels a good cleaning, disconnected my battery for 10+ minutes started it up and no lights or warnings until I tapped the brake pedal and they all came back.
I sprayed my hubs with a garden hose, blindly with the wheels on. The problem has now changed to intermittent. Almost off for a full day. I'll spray them again but now believe it could be corrosion or dirt on the sensors or sensor wheels??
I fought this problem for months, door locks, stabilitrack, traction control, gauges going dead or acting erratic, brakes dragging and applying themsevles, and transmission shifting HARD. My 07 Tahoe stayed at the dealership for 3 1/2 months before they figured it out. Here is a list of items they replaced that did NOT help.
Body control module
powertrain control module
Transmission control module
they checked all the connnectors between the Hi and Low speed LAN circuits.
They went as far as telling me that my DVD player which came in the truck was causing the problem... I called bull**** on it. Told them I wanted a factory rep involved and hired a lawyer. The rep got some high paid techs involved and they ended up replacing a terminating resistor in the wiring harness (by the spare tire) and the negative battery cable. It has not done it now for about 6 months.
