Thread: ABS light help

  1. #1

    Cool ABS light help

    Hey guys, first off I am a new member to the forum. Just purchased a 2001 Silverado 1500 and love it. The problem I am having is that every once in a while I am driving down the road and the ABS light and parking brake light come on. It normally goes away if I turn the truck off and then back on. Nothing changes while I am driving, just the lights come on. Anyone ran into this? Thanks again for the help!!

    You will want to try and run the codes to see what fault you come up with and that will point you to where you need to look since it sounds like you have a shorted wire or a loose/dirty connector...

    That's a Good Question,if you go to a parts house,.....Auto Zone,Napa etc....for free they will hook up a Code Reader to your trucks Computer,to check and to see as Murdog94 mentioned if Fault Codes are coming up........they will plug into the port for your Computer......which is at the bottom of your dash.
