SO, it's been a while since I last posted, I had finally felt like I was rid of the Stabilitrak nightmare, but I was wrong. It came back and a couple weeks later my truck just wouldn't start period. Long story short, I needed to replace my fuel pump, so I did, and the truck worked for literally one hour and shut down on me again. Mechanic comes back out and tells me the module needs to be replaced and it will need to reprogrammed. So I take it to the dealer and they do the reprogramming and it still won't start. So I let them diagnose it and three days later they finally figure it out. From what I understand, and what is written in the paperwork, it was something about my wiring harness or the wires getting wrapped around my axel and being torn up. The whole job only cost me $130 to reprogram the module and $200 to fix the wires and this was about a week and a half and she has been running better than when I bought her so let's see how long this lasts.

Default 2007 Silverado Stabilitrak

Good morning all - thought I would provide an update on the posts I placed on 11/14/18, 12/12/18, and 1/11/19. Problem began as random misfire triggering bad stabilitrak warning and truck instability. Much like everyone else here, the truck lurched at stoplights, shuddered and shook. I used code reader and found #1 misfire and random misfire. Checked and replaced plugs (they had 60,000 + on them). All was good for a bit, until it triggered again on New Years Eve 12/31/2018. The #1 plug fouled bad again, others were good. Code reader indicated misfire. I replaced the coil pak on that cylinder - a MSD unit was all I could find in town at O'Reilly and it was the least expensive. I also replaced the plug. Truck has been good ever since and not fouled it again. I likely will replace all the coil paks some time this summer as a precaution. The truck now has a little over 309,000 miles on it.
