    Default How do you check/clear ABS codes?

    How do i get rid of the ABS light? truck brakes fine, is there a way to check the code or reset the light. my ODBII scanner shows no DTC's. and even telling it to reset does nothing. Truck brakes fine

    Also at the same time the E Brake light came on. Fluid level is almost full so not sure why that would be happening either.

    Thanks for your time

    There isn't a scanner on the market that can diagnose an ABS code beside the big boys, such as Tech II or Snap On's GEnesis/Pegasus. I bought the Actron Brakescan tool a few years back, and it diagnoses and clears ABS codes for OBD 2 vehicles. This link will give you the details, and I know it shows it for $300 but I bought mine at Sear's for $179. Hope this helps:

    on my buddys 03 avalanche it was a problem they had with the control board and there is nothing wrong with the brakes but the computer board thinks there is the only way to fix is to replace the control board
