Are you sure its stabiltrak or just the traction control light. If I'm not mistaken just the full sized GM trucks have stabiltrak. Anywho, the light is on because something is wrong with the traction control. Stop into a local Autozone they can scan it for free and tell you why the lights are on. I'm going to say its either a bad wheel bearing(the bearing is where the abs and traction control sensors are located) or the wires from the bearing to the body are broken or rubbed through.

We have an 07 with the same thing. Been happening since we drove it off the lot new. Dealership never figured it out and there are no codes that get posted to the computer. After we shut off and restart the car it goes away and all is fine again. Seems like a software glitch

David you should have got the Chevy dealer to fix it while it was still under warranty. I would have dropped it off every time the light came on til it was fixed. You paid good hard earned money for it and it shouldn't have a warning light on new. I still think it'd going to be a bad wire harness from the wheel bearing or the bearing/trac control sensor/abs sensor. As far as it being stabilitrak, I've said it before I learn something new about vehicles almost every day.

I have 2008 Pontiac Torrent which shares many of the components of the Equinox. Both the "service stabilitrak" and "traction control" notices have been appearing for about one month now. At that first appearance An independent mechanic said no codes appeared and he reset but they were back on same day. In this one month period i put 3000 miles on the car and about half were hywy.Over the last 3 days my rt front wheel bearing went bad. In hindsight I did begin to here a humming etc about 3 weeks ago. The sensors must be very sensitive.
