Default stabilizer maintenance

Hi there,

I have a Cadillac Seville STS 2001, and my board computer says maintenance of stabilizer. I don't know if there is a context, but another problem is, that when I take a turn left and apply the brakes the ABS takes effect and it rumbles

Does anybody has an idea what the reason for this problem is or how to fix it?

Thanks for all answers and information

Default

Codes? Stability system has multiple componets which can be cause. Position sensors are the most common cause. On your own, look under front wheel housings see if links are attached to control arms.

Default Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES)

C1287 and C1288 indicate a problem with your VSES. The specific cause could be a poor connector connection; a bad circuit; a bad steering wheel position sensor (SWPS); or a bad electronic brake control module (EBCM).

Since your problem is intermittent a bad connection or circuit is possible. Check for poor connections at the harness connectors to the SWPS and the EBCM. The SWPS is under the dash below the steering shaft jacket. The EBCM is in front of the engine on the driver's side.

Default unplugged connector

when i looked under the steering wheel, there was an unplugged female connector, like a giant harness with many cables. Its in the middle unter the steering wheel.

it looks like the counter piece of that connector, which I found on the internet

Does anybody know what this cable is for?

Default Steering Wheel Position Sensor

The connector you are looking at is for a cell phone. It won't work in Europe. The SWPS is a small connector at the base of the steering column. See item 54 and item 2 in the attached photos.
