Hello, I just purchased a 2016 Chevy Cruze Premier from an auction and it's damaged at the front right side. Dash reads service stabilitrax. Could anyone help as to possible causes and fixes? I was thinking it could be wheel speed sensor having damage or something. Any suggestions are appreciated.

That would be my first thought. Check the wiring for the wheel speed sensor. Best thing to do would be to hook up a scan tool to see if there's any more detail on that issue (i.e. showing a code for Right Front Speed Sensor).

Front Right. Could be something as simple as a bad negative battery cable which might be replaced by a dealer for free.

Sounds like they've got a gen2 car, which doesn't suffer that issue, or have batt in same place. And it's likely the car has no warranty left due to a branded title from the insurance auction.

You need access to a scan tool with chassis, brake and body capability (not just OBD2 engine/trans.). With DTCs it will be much easier to give proper diag assistance.

Thank you so much for the advice. I will start there, and hopefully it's nothing major ?

I really appreciate all this help. My problem is I'm not in the USA, I'm in Barbados, I shipped the car here, and this is the only left hand drive 2nd generation Cruze on the island. So I'm basically going at it alone. But I will research how to upgrade that negative battery cable just in case it's that.

Oh I see!! I totally understand. Thank you very much, all of this info is such great support. Focusing on the body work repairs first then see if I can pinpoint what's the root of the problem so I can fix it. Thanks again!
