Stablitrack Repair Code

I just picked up my TB from the dealer after the stabilitrack light came on and stayed on. The last time (2 weeks ago) they changed the steering wheel sensor and reflashed the ebcm. The light came on again today and was a code co244 and co455. They had the truck allday and checked the wiring and connectors and said there was an even newer software update for this. They also said what may have caused it also was that the ebcm was programmed for 245/70R16 tires and from the factory and on the build sheet I have 245/65/R17. I dont know if anyone has heard of this before with the tires but I figured I would pass it along.

The programming was in error, but I cannot see how that could POSSIBLY cause any problem with the vehicle. Those two tires are identical in diameter to within 0.1%.

Tires can wear unevenly more than that if not rotated!

Yet again, a dealer's competence is put to the test and comes up short. Or they know the truth, but say something stupid because most owners won't notice, and the dealer looks stupid if they say NOTHING.

Thats kind of like I figured. Using the formula for upsizing tires they are almost identical. Thanks for the laugh with the cartoon.

I have had this same problem on my 08 Trailblazer. I will be picking up my Trailblazer in a few, the first time they reseated the sensor. That did not fix the problem, now they replaced the sterring wheel sensor. Will let yall know if that fixed the problem.

Good luck when they were finally able to figure out the sensor the light came on and was o when I brought it to them and it showed the sterring wheel was turned all the way to the right even though it was driving straight. Thats what set the code off. My ligh has been off ever since they changed it.
