    I have a 2011 silverado with 5.3L. I noticed these two messages flashing at me and I can't get them to turn off with manual reset instructions. Is the dealer my only option? Is there something I can fix?

    Start by getting the codes read so you can determine whats going on, I wouldnt presume itll be something simple, they rarely are but theres always a chance.
    You should still be under warranty.

    How many miles on this? You said these are flashing messages, or is that just a figure of speech?

    It has 34K, messages alternate on the message board, traction control and ABS warning lights on the dash are on solid....

    I've had the same warnings because of low battery voltage I do agree you should have it checked for codes

    I have had the issue twice in the past on my 08.

    The first was caused by a "tech" lifting the truck and catching a wheel sensor line pulling and damaging it. The lights were NOT on when I shut truck off at dealer, but were on when I started it to pick it up. Then the "tech" said, "they were on when I pulled it into shop...." Yeah, uh I was there on full warranty, ya think I may have mentioned it??? I no longer use that dealer.

    The second time the symptoms were accompanied by a harsh 1st to 2nd shift. After much troubleshooting by my new dealer, who is awesome, it was found the wire bundle behing the brake assembly(power adjustable) was chafing and shorting. I believe there is a TSB on that issue.

    XS ive,

    Do you have any idea what the TSB number is on the chafing harness? I have similar symptoms on my '07 Suburban. The Stabilitrak light comes on when coasting, like when coming up to a stoplight. It usually clears within a minute or so, but if I start out while it's still on, then the shift to second is very hard.

    Mental note for me.*check year model of vehicle*-Check
    *has wheel cylinders*-check..
    *issue is something with that year model*-check.....

    Okay I'm good to ask a question on brakes now!! Hahaha (only a few will get this if they read it)

    Anyway, have you recently had your brakes serviced for repaired for any reason?
    I read below that they stay on solid. Have they always stayed on solid or did they come on and go off under throttle or braking?
