  1. Just had this happen. Going under 15mph, applying the brake causes the pedal to become stiff and lock up and not work. This has caused me to almost hit someone twice. Sounds to me like brake booster. Anyone else having/had this problem???
  2. Currently have my 2020 Gmc sierra 1500 with a build date of 09/2019 at the dealer with 2kmiles on it. Battery was dead one morning. After jump starting had check engine light and brake antilock system issue sent to my email. Truck would not hold a charge after leaving it on for a good 30 min. Its been at the dealer for 3days now.
  3. Anyone have a check engine light show up then go away and come back? Code uo129 lost communication with brake control module, UO101 lost communication with transmission Control Module. Went to bed with no check engine light, woke up in the morning for work and noticed the truck would not remote start. When I go in to head to work noticed check engine light. After work ran codes. Shortly after getting codes and using google to research check engine light was gone. Went for a drive never came back on. Woke up this morning it was on again. Can anybody relate?
  4. I have a 2019 Sierra HD with integrated brake controller. I'm towing a 5th wheel camper with two axles and electric brakes on each. Behind the camper I'm town an ATV trailer with two axles, but only one of them has an electric brake. Towing either of the trailers individually there are no issues with the trucks brake controller to control the brakes on the trailer. But with both trailers connected the truck won't apply any 'juice' to the brakes. It does nothing - no brakes on their trailer. When I manually apply the brake controller it does nothing. GM is telling me the truck is only d
  5. I have about 6000 ( i travel a lot and despise airplane seats ) miles on my 2019 GMC SEIRRA DENALI 5.3 ( I love chrome lol ) . I've been experiencing a very troubling issue been to the dealership once already and had a hard time convincing them that something was wrong with the truck .Every time i drive for long periods of time or idle for 10+ mins when i shift from park to drive i cannot go faster than 5 mph without the rear brakes locking up. I do not know if this is some kind of limp mode or what . Contacted GM they work slower than molasses , idk what to do
  6. My new old '88 truck needs a new brake light switch. It's got a release switch thing for cruise control in front of it (but no cruise control on the column), and I'm wondering if anyone with a similar set up can give me some basic tips on how to get to that brake light switch, in order to take it out. Can you wiggle your fingers around in there and get it loose, or will I have to take something off to get to it? The cruise control switch is on the brass bracket from the steering column. Even if I take the cruise control switch out, it's hard to get to the brake light switch. But I'm new at thi
  7. I'm about to install the Chevy Performance Brembo Brake Upgrade on our Silverado. Has anyone else installed this kit? Anyone thinking about it? At first glance, it seems pretty straightforward. After reading the manual, however, I'm realizing I need to take the front wheel bearings off to access the dust shield. Other than that, it seems to be a easy rotor/caliper replacement. Big thanks to @RyanbabZ71 for recommending a great brake bleeding tool! The front set is a true six-piston caliper. The rear calipers are stock calipers painted red to match the fronts. The size
  8. Well, here it is: N182202780 - Special Coverage Adjustment - Brake Assist Decreased Due to Vacuum Loss GLOBAL SAFETY FIELD INVESTIGATIONS DCS5013 URGENT - DISTRIBUTE IMMEDIATELY Date: April 10, 2019 Subject: N182202780 - Special Coverage Brake Assist Decreased due to Vacuum Loss Models: 2014 – 2017 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV 2014 – 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe 2014 – 2017 GMC Sierra, Yukon,
  9. As stated, I have an 05 1500 silverado 5.3 v8 4x4 4L60e. It's got a bunch of electrical issues, ie. Dome lights only stay on for maybe a second or 2 when I open my driver door with the truck on or off, speakers going in and out, gear indicator lights only work and come on in the evening when the automatic headlights come on, every couple thousand miles my service 4wd light comes on but my 4wd actually works... The problem I am most concerned about now is my front driver side brake. No lights are on on the dash. It is not releasing. I have put a new caliper, rotor, pads, wheel hub
  10. Im wondering what issue would cause the rear wheel cylinder ears that hold the brake pads, to shear off? I have a 2006 GMC Sierra 1500 2WD 4.8L with rear drumbrakes. I replaced the rear wheel cylinders and brake shoes on both sides. After 5-10 minuets of driving, i had extremely loud squealing from the rear when braking to a stop. I took off the drums to check and saw that the passenger side wheel cylinder ears had sheared right off, but only on the outside of the truck, not inside ears. The shoe that is towards the front of the truck also was pushed out towards the inside of the d
  11. Did a rear drum brake shoe and wheel cylinder replacement on my 2006 Sierra 1500 2WD. After about 5-10min of driving i started getting very loud squealing when braking to a stop. I ended up checking the next day to see what the cause may be and noticed that the passenger wheel cylinder ears where the shoes sit had sheared right off. The shoe on the front side of the truck had also pulled away from the backing plate a bit and was rubbing on the inside of the drum face. That seems to be where the squealing is coming from, but what would cause the wheel cylinder ears to sheer off like that? It's
  12. 2015 Silverado 1500 This weekend I changed my rear rotors. It was a simple swap, old ones off, new ones on. The next morning I went to start the truck and barely got it to turn over and the DIC threw a message up saying service trailer brake system. My radio also completely reset and when I press on my brakes all lights dim. Any suggestions in what this could be?
  13. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 9-11-2019 General Motors has announced that NHTSA is mandating a safety recall for the following vehicles: 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Pickups (1500 / 2500 / 3500) 2015-2018 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Yukon vehicles 2015-2017 Cadillac Escalade NHTSA reports that the amount of vacuum created by the vacuum pump may decrease over time. The group says that as the vacuum level drops, the brake assist decreases, and that this increasing braking effort, extending the distance require
  14. I have a 2000 Silverado 2500 6.0l. Long story short, I was bad and shotgunned parts at it. Replaced Hydroboost, master cylinder, and the power steering pump. Also put in a new return line from hydro boost to pump with an inline filter. I still have no power steering, and the brake pedal goes to the floor and slowly comes back up. I’m lost. Apologies in advance for any poor forum posting, I’m new on here.
  15. Got an interesting one for the forum. After the truck (2016 GMC Sierra) has been sitting a while (usually over night or for a few hours) the pedal let's out a nice squeak. On rare occasions I can get it to do it twice in a row, but most of the time the squeak is only for the first press then is gone for all the other presses. Normal daily driving I don't hear it, it's only the first press or when I have to hit my brakes hard (ex, cut off by someone). My local dealer service department (who's treated me well and has good mechanics) looked at it and said they can't repeat it enough to truly diag
  16. I have a 2004 GMC Sierra 2500. The abs cable on the front driver side is disconnected because of a lift installed. Is there an extension cable or something out there that will connect? I swear I’ve looked everywhere?
  17. Being that the 91 Suburban is a square body I posted here in hopes of getting some help. I have a 4x4 suburban 1/2 ton I just overhauled the brakes. On the back brakes I replaced everything (All springs, axle brake lines, wheel cylinder, all new hardware including self adjustment wheel and kit and the wheel cylinder links) except the drums and the backing plate which I couldn't find a new replacement. Please note also there is no parking brake cable at all, no parking brake strut or the arm that holds the cable. Three things I have done that could have cont
  18. I own a 04 chevy silverado 1500. The brakes are spongy ( I've bleed them throughly, new everything except booster and master). My work trucks brakes are great 06 Sierra 2500 hd dual piston calipers all the way around same pads as the ones in my chevy. The question is can I upgrade to a dual piston the rear? They currently have the wimpy single piston. If an upgrade is possible do I need to upgrade the Master cylinder to accommodate the extra volume? If so can I just order the 2500 hd master cylinder?
  19. Hoping to get a little insight on a brake problem. I'm in need of a brake proportioning valve but, it's turning out to be a tad difficult finding the correct one. My 69 C10 is stock, no ones has messed with the brakes but for some reason I can't find the correct proportioning valve. I've purchased two from Classic Industries and both of them turned out to be the wrong one. They sent 5 port proportioning valves both times but I only have a 4 port... 2 inlet, 2 outlet factory 4 wheel drum. Is this such a difficult problem? Seems odd. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  20. looking for a little guidance...I have tried to do quite a bit of research, but haven't really found a convincing direction for my breaks...I have 69k miles on my truck...and breaks are acting up a bit...nothing crazy, but they need a little attention at least...and I am concerned that the little issue will turn big quickly... I am not looking to go crazy on an upgrade, as far as I can tell the stock brakes are fine for me...(unless the upgrade cost is minimal)...basically I have come across Wagner (I think most chains like Firestone/Hibdon, etc.) install these...but also have seen
  21. Just curious if anyone is running the Power Stop Z36 kit. I had the pads on my Ram and loved them. The rotors are awful on this truck (have been warped since about 45,000 miles). The pads could probably go another 15,000 or so but since I am taking it apart for 50 bucks I don't want to take it apart again. These rotors seem to be pretty high quality in terms of metal/coating/machining. I hope they can at least make it 50,000 before warping. OEM used to be far superior in terms of run out/warping compared to parts store stuff these days but apparently the new "dura life" rotor isn't
  22. Did a search for this on the forum but saw only mentions of them.... Looking for some insight on the BBKs for my '16 Silverado... Wanting to here from current members/owners of BBKS what Pros, Cons, Comparisons, and experiences they've encountered with installing a BBK... Looking at some of the major brands like Brembo, Wilwood, Baer, StopTech, PowerStop, Rolloface, AP Racing, etc... Do you have just the front or rear installed? Drilled, Dimpled, Slotted, Combo rotors?
  23. Hey folks, A while ago I made a post about some ABS stuttering, well turns out I had terrible rotors and worn thin brake pads that the dealership never replaced (had bought the truck about 2 months prior to it starting). I just recently (about 3 weeks ago) had the rear rotors and rear brake pads replaced as they were the ones in question. Before I took it in, I noticed I was getting some grinding and somewhat squeaking noise when I shifted (sitting at a complete stop) from P, to R, to D, and not just in that order. It ONLY occurred when I was holding the brake to shift. Well 500 dollars l
  24. Hey all, Was under my 2002 Tahoe the other day and noticed rusted brake lines under the drivers side door area. They look pretty bad and I think I'm going to have them looked at. Has anyone had to have brake lines replaced on their trucks? Just wondering what it might cost. Thanks
  25. Hey folks, I’m pretty new to the forum, so please excuse this if it’s already been mentioned. I’m a newish driver and new truck owner, my Silverado is actually my first car. My grandfather used to be a mechanic so he’s been teaching me things here and there, but he’s stumped on this and even after all the reading I’ve done, so am I. Since the day I bought my truck, about 6 months ago to be exact, I’ve felt this bounce within my brake pedal when stopping, typically from 30MPH and up. At times it can be so bad it will throw me forward. My steering wheel doesn’t shake, nor do I fe
