Just got it back from the dealer.

4x4 controls in the dash were replaced and all my problems have gone away.

Same error codes popped up on my 06 H3 w/ 41K. They would go away when I shut down and restarted, after a few days they come on all the time and stay on.

Dealer charged me 1 hour diagnoses ($100), reported code 45 and RR ABD Wheel Speed Sensor bad. $86 for new part and another $100 to install.

Service writer claimed that in 07 they went to Powertrain warranty so there would have been no charge, but she couldn't make it happen for me and my 06, so, I'll have to pay the $280 and change unless I want to do it myself, which I didn't.

I looked them up online and see them for < $60. When the next one goes, I'd like to change it myself, but how will I know if it goes, and which one?

How do you cycle the dash to clear it? The dealership wants me to replace the yew sensor for $600! This all occured after the 4x4 control and stabilitrack was disconnected.

I had a stalling at turns issue so I followed a thread that said to clean the throttle body and mass air flow sensor, which cured the stalling. About a week later the SYS STAB TRACTION FAIL REDUCED POWER message began popping up. I retraced my steps and emptied the half used can of Mass Airflow Sensor cleaner on the part again and re-installed it. No further problems.

Default ABS Fault, Traction Control Failure, Service Stab System. Lost brakes

Hello
I am looking for any help I can get. I have 2007 hummer h3.
about a month ago I got errors come on ABS Fault, Traction Control Failure, Service Stab Sysytem. Approx 5 days after that, no brakes the pedal went all the way to the floor. I had to use the parking brake to stop. So I towed it to a shop I have been using over 12 years. They said it was a ABS pump. and would be a total of $1498 for part and installation. When they installed the part they could not get it to bleed properly. Then they came back to say I needed a master cylinder. I went to pick it up yesterday and I about cried. $2498.00. I drove it for a 1/2 mile and the errors came back up, brake pedal all the way to the floor and about rear ended someone. I took it back to the shop and now its over 3 weeks and not fixed. Can anyone possibly shed some light on this situation? Did I need a new master cylinder or ABS pump since it was installed and doing the same thing?

This is always hard to internet / web diagnosis a problem this extensive.
1st information is need.....
Mileage?
How long had the problem been occurring?
When did the problem start?
Were there any codes?
Were there any other odd symptoms?
What did you personally do to the H3 before taking it in?
Did you go off roading through mud, water etc?

Let us know.

This is a six year old thread.

buddy1065, stalling/mass airflow sensor has NOTHING to do with braking/stabilitrack sytem or messages.

Joy, I am very sorry to hear. I agree with Happy that this is hard to diagnose since per his questions there are so many elements in the system.

My perspective, in the spirit of helpfulness is:

1. The ABS/TC/STAB message you are getting is a warning that can mean many things. When mine went off in my 2006 H3, it turned out to be the cheap, simple electric motor (solenoid switch, technically) that engages/disengages 4wd Lo and Hi. In other words, after the message lit up, when I hit the 4WD button on the dash, nothing happened. Cheap fix.

2. Brake pedal to the floor: Whoever handled your procedure absolutely does not know what they are doing. Speak with the owner and and let him know nicely - but firmly - you do not have confidence in their ability and fix your truck for a fair price - the flat pedal is proof of this. If they do not take ownership for everything you tell them you are left with no choice but to take legal action. Seriously.

3. Go directly to the nearest dealer and get that fixed immediately and properly. Never, EVER use that shop again. It probably IS your master cylinder, after all.

Good luck, I am really sorry to hear this story and I hope things get better for you quickly.

Just to shed some additional light; when the engine goes into the REDUCED POWER MODE, the computer will automatically turn off the Stability System and the Traction Control System as well. The computer figures that in "limp mode", neither is needed. Therefore, a problem with the MAF sensor, or the throttle position sensor, CAN result in SYS STAB TRACTION FAIL warnings.
