Questions about my new truck
I just bought a 1996 C1500 4x4 single cab short bed with a 305 and 700R4 in it. Have a few questions about it.
1: The ABS light is on and stays on about 80% of the time. The truck stops fine and has fluid in it. I assume the light is due to a faulty sensor or loose wire. Im just wondering if this is a common issue with these trucks.
2: Did these trucks come with keyless entry? I didnt get a FOB with the truck and the man only had 1 key for it and it is a copy not original. If they came with FOBs which type is correct for the model and how hard is it to program a new one to the truck?

I'm not sure about the ABS issue. I had a 96, but sold it in 2005. I will say it was having a lot of electrical issues, shorts, blown fuzes, etc which was part of the reason I sold it.
As far as the keyless entry, I bought mine when it was 2 years old and it had an aftermarket one put on. The previous owner worked at the dealership I was buying it from and he said it hadn't come with one. The one he had put in was also a remote start though and allowed me to roll the windows down from outside. That was awesome.
