I am having the same troubles with my 2010 avalanche with the stabilitrak/abs light coming on.. I do my own repairs as I am a auto tech with over 40 years exp. I have been looking into this problem and I realized that most of the times this this comes on after I have been using the cruise control and then hit my brakes. I have read somewhere that this can relate to the brake light switch. I am going to order a OEM one as I found out that that is really the only things electronically that really works with late model car/trucks.. I will advise after I get it and use it for a while.

Default Traction control issues

I read someone else's fix was to replace the steering wheel position sensor and it worked for him. Hope that helps.

I had this issue myself, and I think I found the solution. I realize it has been a while since this thread was last updated, but perhaps someone will stumble upon it via Google, etc.
The issue I was having was that the hose that comes from the intake and eventually connects to the rear of the driver's side valve cover. The last piece of this assembly is a small 3/8" hose about 2" long. Mine was split. I assume it is part of the internal PCV system that is integral to the valve cover on the 5.3L, and was letting unmetered air in somewhere. My truck was throwing lean codes, and random "service stabilitrack," "traction controll off" messages. I taped up the hose as a temporary fix and it immediately solved the problem.

Default 2007 chevy suburban

I have the same problem and a dealer said replacing your fuel injectors would fix the problem he said that he had one and the dealer changed a ton of money and he replaced the fuel injectors and fixed the problem and any time he gets a 2007 anything chevy he sends them right out to get injectors replaced. 07 was the first year that Chevrolet came out with those fuel injectors that when you were on the highway half of them shut down and they were malfunctioning and chevy should have made a recalled and they didn't

Default Found a fix

i was having this exact issue and like many others was searching for some type of answer. In my search I found someone who recommended to clean the hub assembly. Basically take off the pads and rotor, and clean the round magnetic ring. It gets dirty and can impair the signal to the system. They recommend using a nylon brush, then mild soap. I however was unable to remove the caliper housing(not sure what it’s actually called). The main caliper part came off with no issue, removed the pads, but couldn’t go further. I was really hoping I wouldn’t have to take it into a shop, but figured I would still see what I could do. I used a can of brake cleaner and sprayed away. I could take a flashlight and see that everything behind the rotor looked coated in debris, dirt, dust and just about everything else, which is to be expected. I used plastic straw that came with the cleaner and coated as much as I could see. The cleaning fluid poured out the bottom, now black with dirt, I just kept spraying and turning the rotor, spraying and turning, spraying and turning till things looked pretty clean. Put everything back together and it worked he lights and dinging stopped. Not sure if this will work for everyone, but I wanted to share. For the cost of two cans of brake cleaner, my problem was solved

Angry 2007 Avalanche Stabilitrak warning message

This is actually the "Goto" error message that pops up anytime there is a fuel flow error, electronic ignition error, air flow error or any other combination of errors that occur.
I've had the throttlebody, spark plugs, piston ring soak, fuel pump and other misc. items replaced , all recommendations of the service dept of the dealership.

Yes, the throttlebody sensor can go bad but they make more money when they charge you over list for the entire throttlebody.
The spark plugs were replaced because they misinterpreted the error code, then when I went back they determined that the fuel pump pressure regulator was defective... inside the fuel pump which is inside the fuel tank.
The piston ring soak was a last ditch effort to fix a misfire problem because they couldn't think of anything else.

Everyone of these issues were accompanied by the Stabilitrak Traction Control Off warning message on the dash display.

Oh yeah, the load leveling compressor has a bad exhaust valve which throws a service suspension system error. They wanted $600 parts & labor to take care of that.
I had already replaced it once for $160 for the pump and 20 minutes of my time replacing it. I can replace it four times for the amount the were asking.

My last trip in which included the piston ring soak... "carbon buildup" (Good thing I use Shell gasoline that keeps those nasty buildups from happening). I was very clear about ignoring the stabilitrak message and focus on the problem.

This all cost money and they didn't take any parts back.
