Asked by dgearhart Mar 22, 2008 at 04:47 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: General

I was told by the dealer that my 2008 chevy silverado 1500 comes with stabilitrak but I cannot find a button that turns it on and off.  When I asked the dealer he said that it does not have a button to turn on and off.  I looked at my owners manual and it says it should have a button to turn on and off.  Did he pull one over on me?

Either yours has stabilitrak and the button to turn it off, or you got one without stabilitrak. I know some of the lower-end Dodges come with a switch to turn the passenger airbag off when you don't have a front seat passenger, but as you get into the higher trim levels, the switch is not there. So it is possible they omitted the switch. Have another dealer run your VIN number and show you if your car was optioned with stabilitrak or not.

if your silverado has a traction controll button just hold it in and the display screen will tell you traction control is off, just wait with the button held in and the screen will tell you stabilitrak is off, but as soon as you turn the truck off it turns back on, so just hold the t/c button again to turn it off, you have to hold it for 8 to 10 seconds but it will turn off. also if you put the truck in 4x4 low it will turn stabilitrak off automatically

If it doesn't have a button to turn Stabilitrak off, it does NOT have Stabilitrak- the button looks like a truck with squiggly lines behind it- you hold it for up to 10 seconds and you will get a "Stability system disabled " yellow light or symbol on your dash- Stability control was NOT standard on all 2008 trucks- the button should be located between the 2 cigarette lighter/plugins at the bottom of the middle of the dash.
