After driving 400 miles from Chicago to St. Paul the Outlook died and won’t start. Left Chicago 2 days before Christmas around 50 degrees, stopped for gas at Cenex station (Top Tier) and filled up. I did top of a tiny bit after the pump shut off. A short while later, started to rain, then snow, temp was plummeting down to 30’s, message that traction control wasn’t working and Stabilitrack needs to be serviced. Temp then dropped down in 20’s and check engine light came on, as it was blizzarding. Had to slow down to 20 mph or less for the last 60-70 miles since conditions were really hazardous. Had to make the tough decision to keep plugging along with the CE light on. As soon as I exited the highway after driving 400 miles and got to a stop light waiting to turn (less than one mile away from the in-laws house) the car shut itself off and wouldn’t start. Being 6 pm the day before Christmas Eve, service shops were all shut down for next 4 days until Monday. Had tow truck come and try to jump start and he used starter fluid, but no luck, so had towed to repair shop and waiting through the holiday and weekend until they’ll reopen on Monday. Sorry for the long post..any ideas would be appreciated.

Sorry but there isn't much action on here since the model was discontinued and there are limited vehicles on the road. You may try the other forums in the future, Traverse,Enclave and Acadia (1st gen).
A lot of things may cause the stabilitrac/traction control messages, they usually don't keep the vehicle from running though. Check your throttle body, it may be frozen. ,keep it clean and free, check for moisture.
