Just starting today I have flashing messages on 2009 2500HD 4x4 gas.
They scroll between:
“Service traction control”
“Service stabilitrak”
“Service trailer brake system”
Also, the traction control symbol and the ABS symbol are staying lit.
It drives and brakes fine.
1) what the heck is this?
2) will it hurt to drive until I have time to get it fixed?
(We are in the midst of lawn mowing 25 accounts and it will be several days before I can really afford to be without. We do pull a light trailer for mowing, but only single axle, do no trailer brakes.)

Likely it's a bad wheel speed sensor. Traction control and ABS use the same sensors.

The brakes revert to conventional braking under these conditions, generally OK to drive but it will skid worse if you slam on the brakes.

If you don't have a code scanner, I would get a OBD2 bluetooth reader on Amazon and sync it to your phone/laptop. It'll tell you specifically the issues


Most likely 10 years of IL driving weather has taken a toll on those sensors and electronics causing your warning messages

There are a lot of Chevy trucks forum, they probably have the answer there without even posting anything.

Okay, thanks guys.
Yes, I’ll drop by Autozone or look more online tonight. Just trying to bust out the last few lawns before dark/Easter and didn’t have time to research.
