VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

3/5/2014 - LAONA, WI
I PURCHASED THIS CAR IN SUMMER 2013. IT WAS FINE FOR A COUPLE MONTHS THEN THE CRUISE CONTROL STARTED GOING OUT AND THE ESC AND TRACTION CONTROL WOULD CODE AT THE SAME TIME. I SEARCHED ON THE INTERNET AND FOUND THE GM SERVICE BULLETIN THAT SAID TO REMOVE THE CONNECTORS FROM THE COMPUTER AND APPLY DIALECTIC GREASE DUE TO CORROSION. THIS WOULD WORK 30 TO 60 DAYS THEN I WOULD HAVE TO APPLY MORE GREASE. BEFORE CHIRSTMAS I WAS DRIVING HOME AT NIGHT AND NOTICED THAT MY BRAKE LIGHTS WERE STUCK ON. I FOUND THAT THIS WOULD OFTEN HAPPEN AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE OTHER PROBLEMS WOULD CODE AND OTHER TIMES THE BRAKE LIGHTS WOULD JUST COME ON. I HAVE APPLIED GREASE SEVERAL TIMES THIS WINTER AND IT DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE. THE ESC AND TRACTION CONTROL CODE AT RANDOM TIMES, AND THE CRUISE CONTROL BECOMES INOPERABLE. THE AIR BAG LIGHT IS NOW ON AND STAYS ON. THESE ARE ALL ANNOYING BUT THE ISSUE THAT SCARES ME IS THE BRAKE LIGHTS COMING ON AT RANDOM TIMES WHEN I DON'T TOUCH THE BRAKE PEDAL. THAT IS OBVIOUSLY UNSAFE AND I WOULD HOPE THAT GM WOULD STEP UP AND FIX IT. THEY WOULDN'T HAVE ISSUED THE SERVICE BULLETIN IF THEY DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS A PROBLEM, AND THE DEALERSHIP I PURCHASED IT FROM HAD SMEARED THE CONNECTORS HEAVY WITH GREASE SO THEY MUST HAVE READ THE SERVICE BULLETIN TOO.
