Today while driving the check engine light, stability control light, and cruise control light all turned on(cruise light blinked on and off continuously). Vehicle still drives normally. It is going to be looked at tomorrow morning at dealer. I'll post results.:confused:

Due to the drive by wire system all those things flash now when you get a cel :( Let us know what they say. The stability control light makes me think it's ABS related somehow.

I have the same problem with my Tribeca. It went away later in the day, but is back today. This time my ABS light is on as well and sometimes er 55 or er SS on the trip meter. The trip mileage will usually return after the car is turned off and back on but the other lights will stay on for a while. Any word from the dealer on what caused this problem on your car? Googled the er 55 and someone else had the same problem and it was a 5 day keep replacing parts and sensors at the dealer ordeal.

After 3 days and 2 trips to the dealer, my check engine light, ABS, blinking cruise control and ER SS seem to be finally banished. On the first trip to the dealer they said it was a loose connection, but on the 2nd trip they replaced a wheel speed sensor.

Bummer it took so long, I suppose since it's a new model diagnosing can take a little longer. Glad you got it all sorted out though.

Looks like the same symptoms are happening to me.
I was just driving and all of a sudden it felt like it wasn't shifting properly, getting a CEL, cruise control kept flashing and the engine stability light was flashing. I'll get it checked it asap and post results back here.

Hope it's nothing serious.

Same thing happening to us

My wife and I have experienced the same thing two times this week. I posted a separate thread in the drive train area of this site. We were driving down the road today (up a hill) and the engine just revved and it felt like it just slipped out of gear. The anti-sway, cruise and check engine lights came on. I coasted to the shoulder, turned off and turned back on. Check engine, cruise blinking and ant-sway were on but the vehicle drove fine. Very frustrating!

I just had the same thing happen, and took it in today. (good timing, as my service was due to). They didn't give me the specific code, but they told me it was due to... wait for it... a loose gas cap! They said that if the cap is a little loose, it will affect the system, but not neccesarily right away. Anyone else hear or get told of this? (It is gone, now, BTW)

Think I'll check that first next time the CEL comes on again.

Cheers!

Had mine turn on yesterday, check engine, traction control and flashing cruise.

I guess the concensus is it could be different causes. I'll go out and tighten the gas cap though just in case.

Going to dealer for next service this week so they can check this out too along with my rattling rear lift gate.

update:

After driving two separate trips for about 15 miles the lights went out. only thing I did was tighten the gas cap. Heve not made it to the dealer yet. So assumably mine was casued by the gas cap.

I beleive it takes like 2-3 cycles of driving to reset the CEL.

Thanks Eveyone!
My wife just called and said that the same thing was happening to our 06. We'll try the gas cap and report back.

Last night, similar thing happened..

- Solid Check Engine Light
- Flashing Cruise Control Light
- Solid Traction Control Off Light
- Flashing Low Fuel Light
- Fuel Tank showing completely empty

Anyone experience this light sequence with the Low Fuel light? I've driven about 100 miles on this tank of gas so I know it's not empty. I've driven this 100 miles over a course of a week. If the gas cap was loose, why take so long to trigger warning lights?

Tried calling the stealership and they're not picking up...

Drove for a while and the gas light went off and the fuel gauge started working again but other lights stayed on. Ran into the store, got back in and gas light issue came back. Drove home after this, shut 'beca off, started and gas light went off and others persisted.

Update:

100+ miles and no change. Combination of a buch of small trips and multiple checks on the gas cap, but all lights still on. Some hesitation on hills at times to (of couse only when my wife is driving).
Dealer visit scheduled this week, we'll see what they have to say.
