STABILITRAK
ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL SYSTEMS (STABILITRAK)
StabiliTrak systems help drivers maintain control of
their vehicles, especially during emergency lane
changes or avoidance maneuvers. StabiliTrak uses
various sensors, such as steering wheel angle, wheel
speed, yaw velocity, etc., to detect any difference
between the path requested by the steering wheel
position and vehicle’s actual path. When appropriate,
the system selectively controls brakes, engine power,
and even suspension settings to enhance control of the
vehicle’s direction and help keep it on course.
Independent studies conducted by the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety, and others have found
StabiliTrak to be highly effective in reducing vehicle
crashes. General Motors offers StabiliTrak systems on
many of its passenger car and light truck models.
See your owner's manual for additional information
about the operation of StabiliTrak.
Q. How does StabiliTrak work?
A. StabiliTrak has the ability to apply control forces to the vehicle independent
of the driver. StabiliTrak uses sensors to continuously compare the path
indicated by the steering wheel position to the vehicle’s actual path. If a
discrepancy is detected, StabiliTrak selectively controls vehicle brakes and
engine torque to create a yaw moment that helps restore the vehicle’s
actual path to the path indicated by the steering wheel position. StabiliTrak
has the ability to help correct both understeer (where the vehicle is not
turning as much as the steering wheel position indicates) and oversteer
(where the vehicle is turning more than the steering wheel position
indicates).
AIRBAGS &
STABILITRAK
Q. Will a tire change affect StabiliTrak?
A. Use of tires other than original equipment may affect StabiliTrak
performance. StabiliTrak is designed to make the best use of available
traction. The performance characteristics of the original equipment tires
are part of the overall system effectiveness. When you replace tires check
the recommendations in your owner's manual. On GM vehicles, the
original equipment tires have a “TPC” (Tire Performance Criteria) code on
the sidewall. Replacing the tires with the same “TPC” code will help assure
proper StabiliTrak performance.
Q. How do I use StabiliTrak?
A. StabiliTrak operates independently of the driver. You should continue to
drive your StabiliTrak equipped vehicle with caution and care. GM’s
StabiliTrak system, StabiliTrak is designed to be as seamless as possible
in operation, and part of the overall vehicle response to make a good
vehicle better
DRIVER OPERATED STABILITRAK BUTTON
An advanced computer controlled stability enhancement system assists the driver with directional control of the
vehicle in difficult driving conditions. Each time the vehicle is started, the StabiliTrak system is fully on. StabiliTrak
can be controlled by a button located on the left side of instrument panel. The system condition is displayed by a
StabiliTrak indicator light and Driver Information Center (DIC) Message. Push once to disable Traction Control.
Push and hold to disable both Traction Control and StabiliTrak. In this condition, StabiliTrak will automatically
turn ON when the vehicle speed exceeds 35 mph (56km/hr) while the Traction Control remains OFF. Push again to
enable Traction Control and StabiliTrak.
AIRBAG FAQ
Can specialty vehicle equipment (e.g. radar devices, video
cameras, computers, meters, radio trees, shotguns, etc.) still
be mounted in cars with passenger side airbags?
Yes, but care must be taken to mount the equipment outside of the deployment
deployment zone. Therefore, to reduce the risk of injury to vehicle occupants,
GM recommends that the air deployment zone be kept free of any equipment. If
a piece of equipment were to become dislodged it could strike an occupant in
the vehicle and result in injury. The likelihood of an object becoming dislodged
the object is secured to the vehicle. In addition to these factors, the trajectory
vehicle crash.
Objects that are in the deployment zone, but do not become dislodged by an
ability of the bag to provide restraint.
Is it possible to shield equipment that is installed in the
passenger side frontal airbag deployment zone in a manner
that will allow full and safe airbag deployment?
While shielding may protect certain equipment from being damaged or
restraint system. Therefore, GM cannot recommend the placement of any
equipment in the deployment zone, even if it is shielded to protect it from
damage.
Front airbag systems and instrument panel mounted equipment.
type of vehicle and the particular instrument panel design.
In some vehicles, the passenger airbag deploys through a discrete door located
on the top surface of the instrument panel (top-mount airbag systems). In other
vehicles, the passenger airbag deploys through a discrete door mounted on the
vertical rearward surface of the instrument panel, above the glove box door
(mid-mount airbag system). With these types of top mount and mid-mount
passenger airbag systems, the top pad of the instrument panel remains in
place during deployment.
Some GM passenger airbag systems deploy from beneath the instrument
panel top pad. These are considered 3/4-mount airbag systems with a
“deployable top pad.” The entire instrument panel top pad is the
airbag deployment. In the process of securely fastening special equipment to
the top, DO NOT fasten down the top pad itself to any other vehicle component
such as the cluster trim plate. As described above, the top pad rotates upward
during a deployment. In order to enable the proper deployment of the
passenger airbag, specialty equipment installation MUST NOT PREVENT the top
pad from rotating upward during deployment. Location and attachment of
special equipment should minimize added resistance or interference to upward
rotation of the top pad during deployment.
On the right half of the top pad closest to the passenger airbag module,
GM recommends that no equipment be mounted. When mounting equipment
on the driver side of the top pad, GM recommends that the total mass of the top
pad mounted special equipment not exceed 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms), since
some top pads tend to rotate about the left end.
Fasteners used to secure special equipment to the instrument panel top pad, the
windshield glass, or to the windshield upper frame (header), should be selected
to ensure that these devices will remain attached during a vehicle crash and
possible airbag deployment.
Side-Impact Airbags for crashes to the vehicle sides.
The airbag system in your police vehicle includes roof rail mounted Head Curtain
side airbags. The vehicle is also equipped with seat back mounted upper body
airbags located on the outboard side of the driver and front passenger seat
backs. Together the Head Curtain and seat-mounted side airbags are intended
to protect the head and upper body in the event of a side crash. The Head Curtain
and seat-mounted side airbags also may be commanded to deploy in the event
that the vehicle sensing system detects an impending or underway rollover of the
vehicle. Some vehicles may also be equipped with an optional airbag, mounted on
the inboard side of the driver seat back.
Can Specialty Vehicle Security Barriers be mounted within the
side airbag deployment zones?
to the vehicle. Mounting a security barrier behind the front seats with the ends
placed within the side airbag deployment zones will result in unintended
of injury to the vehicle occupants, GM recommends that the side airbag zones be
kept free of any customer installed equipment.
Customer furnished equipment installed to the vehicle roof.
The roof system may also include side airbag head curtain components.
side from the base of the windshield along the roof rail above the door openings
to the base of the rear window pillar. Care must be taken to avoid damage to
these components or interference with their operation when installing roof
mounted equipment such as emergency lamps and communication antennas.
airbag push up on the instrument panel top pad, releasing special fasteners
across the rearward edge of the top pad. This allows the top pad to rotate
upward so that the passenger airbag may emerge. The top pad rotates upward
to open widest at the right hand side, and is usually forced upward into contact
with the windshield on the right hand side of the vehicle during a deployment.
Instrument panel top mounted special equipment, such as a radar antenna and
control unit or video camera must be positioned to the left of the vehicle center
line. This equipment must be mounted as low as possible and securely fastened
to the top pad to avoid being dislodged in the event of a crash and possible
Always use safety belts and the correct restraint for your child’s age and size, even with air bags. Even in vehicles equipped with the Passenger Sensing System, children are safer when properly
secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal air bag. See the Owner’s
Manual and the child safety seat instructions for more safety information.
AIRBAG FAQ
Can the installation of push bumpers on the front end of the
vehicle affect the deployment of the airbag?
General Motors is not aware of adverse ects during crash events from the
many push bumpers that have been installed on GM police vehicles. Because
there are many styles of push bumpers available with varying crash
characteristics, installation of push bumpers may or may not ect deployment
timing of the airbags. Push bumpers should be mounted to avoid modifying the
vehicle structure and interfering with the front airbag sensors mounted on the
upper radiator support cross member.
Two front impact sensors are installed in General Motors vehicles. Do not
relocate or disconnect the front sensors. The location and orientation of the front
sensors are critical for correct operation of the airbag system. Avoid mounting
components on or near the sensors. Push bumper styles with vertical pushing
members that are in foreaft alignment with the front airbag sensors are not
recommended.
When should an airbag inflate?
The driver's and right-front passenger's frontal airbags are designed to ate in
moderate to severe frontal or near-frontal crashes. But they are designed to
ate only if the impact speed is above the system's designed "threshold level."
In addition, your vehicle has “dual stage” frontal airbags which tailor the amount
of restraint according to crash severity. For moderate frontal impacts, the
airbags ate at a level less than full deployment. For more severe frontal
impacts, "dual stage" frontal airbags deploy at full levels.
If the front of your vehicle goes straight into a wall that doesn't move or deform,
the threshold level of the reduced deployment is about 12 to 16mph (19 to 15
km/h), and the threshold level for a full deployment is about 18 to 24 mph (29
vehicle
to 28.5 km/h). The threshold level can vary, however, with
design, so that it can be somewhat above or below this range.
If your vehicle strikes something that will move or deform such as a parked car,
the threshold level will be higher. The driver's and right-front passenger's
frontal airbags are not designed to ate in rollover, side impacts, or rear
impacts, because ation would not help the occupant.
Seat mounted side impact airbags are designed to ate in moderate to severe
side crashes. The side impact airbags will ate if the crash severity is above the
designed "threshold level." The threshold level can vary with
vehicles
design. The side impact airbags are not designed to ate on frontal or nearfrontal impacts or rear impacts, because ation would not help the occupant.
Roof rail mounted head-curtain airbags are designed to ate in moderate to
severe side crashes. In addition, certain vehicles have head-curtain airbags
which are also designed to ate in situations where an impending rollover
by the vehicle's rollover sensing system and/or frontal or
condition is iden
near-frontal impacts if the crash severity is above the designed "threshold
level."
Safety belt pretensioners at the driver and front passenger seat positions are
designed to deploy in frontal, near-frontal, side, and rear crashes that exceed
the "threshold level" of crash severity to help reduce slack in the safety belt.
Safety belt pretensioners will also deploy in impending rollover situations.
How long will the airbag remain inflated?
It takes approximately 1/20th of a second to fully inflate the frontal airbags. This
is faster than the blink of an eye. The airbags begin to deflate immediately,
helping to stop the occupants more gradually. Unlike frontal airbags, head curtain
side airbags can remain inflated for more than 5 seconds before they start to deflate.
I've heard that a deployed airbag produces what appears to be
smoke, is the airbag hot?
After the bag has deployed in a crash, the airbag itself will not be hot to touch.
Some components within the airbag module will be hot for a short time. A small
amount of smoke coming from a deployed airbag module is normal and should
not be cause for concern.
Also, when the nitrogen gas is vented out of the airbag, small particles from
inside the bag are also vented into passenger compartment. These airborne
particles look like smoke and some particles are deposited as residue on and
around the airbag.
I've heard that the dusts that are released into the passenger
compartment from the airbag are harmful, is this true?
For most people, the only ect the dusts will produce is some irritation of the
throat and eyes, and that is only if the occupant remains in the vehicle for many
minutes after the airbag deployment with no ventilation and windows closed.
However, some people with asthma may develop an asthmatic attack from
treat themselves the same
inhaling the dusts. If this happens, they should
way their doctor has advised them to treat any other asthma attack, and then
immediately seek medical treatment.
Can the airbag system be re-used?
No. The airbags are designed to ate only once. After ation, some new
parts will be required. These will include the airbag module and possibly other
parts. (A competent service technician with access to the vehicle's service
manual and the required tools should replace the required components after a
deployment crash.)
If my vehicle has airbags, why should I have to wear my safety
belt?
Yes, safety belts are the primary safety restraint in the vehicle. Airbags are
in many vehicles today and will be in most of them in the future. But they are
supplemental systems only; so they work with safety belts, not instead of
them. Every airbag system ever offered for sale has required the use of safety
belts. Even if you're in a vehicle that has airbags, you still have to buckle up to
get the most protection. That's true not only in frontal collisions but especially
in side and other collisions.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL SYSTEMS (STABILITRAK)
StabiliTrak systems help drivers maintain control of
their vehicles, especially during emergency lane changes
or avoidance maneuvers. StabiliTrak uses various
sensors, such as steering wheel angle, wheel speed, yaw
velocity, etc., to detect any difference between the path
requested by the steering wheel position and vehicle’s
actual path. When appropriate, the system selectively
controls brakes, engine power, and even suspension
settings to enhance control of the vehicle’s direction
and help keep it on course.
Independent studies conducted by the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration, the Insurance Institute
for Highway Safety, and others have found StabiliTrak
to be highly effective in reducing vehicle crashes.
General Motors offers StabiliTrak systems on many of its
passenger car and light truck models.
See your owner's manual for additional information
about the operation of StabiliTrak.
Q. How does StabiliTrak work?
A. StabiliTrak has the ability to apply control forces to the vehicle independent
of the driver. StabiliTrak uses sensors to continuously compare the path
indicated by the steering wheel position to the vehicle’s actual path. If a
discrepancy is detected, StabiliTrak selectively controls vehicle brakes and
engine torque to create a yaw moment that helps restore the vehicle’s
actual path to the path indicated by the steering wheel position. StabiliTrak
has the ability to help correct both understeer (where the vehicle is not
turning as much as the steering wheel position indicates) and oversteer
(where the vehicle is turning more than the steering wheel position
indicates).
Q. Will a tire change affect StabiliTrak?
A. Use of tires other than original equipment may affect StabiliTrak
performance. StabiliTrak is designed to make the best use of available
traction. The performance characteristics of the original equipment tires
are part of the overall system effectiveness. When you replace tires check
the recommendations in your owner's manual. On GM vehicles, the
original equipment tires have a “TPC” (Tire Performance Criteria) code on
the sidewall. Replacing the tires with the same “TPC” code will help assure
proper StabiliTrak performance.
Q. How do I use StabiliTrak?
A. StabiliTrak operates independently of the driver. You should continue to
drive your StabiliTrak equipped vehicle with caution and care. GM’s
StabiliTrak system, StabiliTrak is designed to be as seamless as possible
in operation, and part of the overall vehicle response to make a good
vehicle better
DRIVER OPERATED STABILITRAK BUTTON
An advanced computer controlled stability enhancement system assists the driver with directional control of the
vehicle in difficult driving conditions. Each time the vehicle is started, the StabiliTrak system is fully on. StabiliTrak
can be controlled by a button located on the left side of instrument panel. The condition system is displayed by a
StabiliTrak indicator light and Driver Information Center (DIC) Message. Push once to disable Traction Control.
Push and hold to disable both Traction Control and StabiliTrak. In this condition, StabiliTrak will automatically
turn ON when the vehicle speed exceeds 35 mph (56km/hr) while the Traction Control remains OFF. Push again to
enable Traction Control and StabiliTrak.
