Default Stabilitrack/ Reduced Engine Power

I have a 2012 Chevy Traverse it has been an ongoing issue for months and no one has an answer as to what it can be please help. I have had the Stabilitrack/Traction Control light with reduced engine power come on in increasing frequency for months every time I take it to the dealer and they want $80-100 every time. They told me it was the Water pump the first time and well they were wrong and then they said oh we were wrong itís the ECM which they replaced for free because they messed up I was shocked I didnít have to pay, I have since replaced the throttle body the fuses for the ignition, and powertrain, the spark plugs, the air filter, the mass air flow sensor, oil change transmission fluid change. The last go around was the throttle body and it is still acting up and now having problems starting and running. Any suggestions?

only thing i can think is a bad/broken ground somewhere. when this happens does your voltage drop. possibly the main issue is the actual main engine fuse/relay box. inside the box is thin copper wire connecting the circuts and one could be damaged or worse. i tried opening mine up completely on my 2013 traverse and looks like youd need a press to get the bolts out or something.

also you have to post the codes you are getting when this happens because unfortunately it happens for more than 1 issue and throws different codes depending whats affected. some times the code isnt the problem but the result of the main problem , like a shorted wire or broke/damaged connection or dirty terminals. the fuse box is easy to check with the right tools and some parts stores even rent tools out for free with a deposit

Currently dealing with the same issue. Only the problem has been identified as the main fuse box going out. GM having a history of having to recall for this issue but nothing done about this yet. The part is on national back order and I've been without a car since the end of May because of it.

I apologize I knew I needed the code but the car isnít reliable enough to drive so I had to order one off Amazon. Hereís the code it populated.

Based on that code, It could be ignition switch but it could also be what edward gutshall said above about the fuse block. The fuse blocks have thin copper wire in them connecting various fuses and relays. Over time, these copper wires develop breaks causing problems like what you are seeing. Getting them opened is not an easy task so most just buy a replacement. There are several videos on youtube, one with this same code, that show various way of fixing them. One person replaced all the wire with new wire. Others just solder the breaks.
