Changed shift column mechanism, now brakes locking up?

Recommended Posts

I don't know much about vehicles, or forums at that. I know enough obviously to have looked up & changed out the shift column mechanism. Now for some reason when Im at slow speeds my brakes are wanting to lock up? Could this have something to do with something not being plugged back in right or? Im lost on this one.

When you say changed shift column mechanism are you talking about a component on the shift column? What's the year, make, model, engine of the vehicle we're discussing? Keep in mind help in forums goes quicker when we know what kind of vehicle you're driving with the details.

Do you have any codes, lights on in the dash display? Does it have traction control? I'd go back and check the wiring connectors and make sure those that were unplugged got plugged back in. Also keep in mind there's wires in the dash area and if one got bumped a little hard or something of that nature that could jar it loose or loosen a connector so it's imperative to check all plugs and make sure there's no wires loose on any of the ones you loosened and those in the area where you were working. 

 

Does it feel like the brakes applying and locking up or possibly the shift column is out of sync depending on what year, make,  model you have. 

What promoted the replacement of this component before these new symptoms occurred? 

 

Codes is what needs to be checked as well. Codes may give a direction. 

Another thing that came to mind does the ABS motor cycle? This would make a sound of motors energizing by the EBCM such as when wheels lock up on wet, snowy or slippery surfaces. This could be something related to the traction control as well. There's a lot of possibilities but I'm sure someone who sees them (Chevy vehicles with this issue) more than me will probably recognize it right away. 

IF you have a code or codes post them here and don't do the parts cannon and throw parts at it as parts houses will gladly sell you them all day long without a proper diagnosis. 

 

One other forum you can join and post in where you have techs on the front lines daily is scannerdanner.com.  Top notch guys there. 

 

Join the forum, post your question according to the Forum rules including the pertinent vehicle information and copy and paste your original post from this forum and you may get a answer pretty darn quick that is probably one or two sentences long compared to mine. 

 

I'm a work in progress but I'm always learning and those guys help me out over there and I help guys out as I can to.

I have a 99 Chevy 1500 ; Not sure if it’s a Silverado or not my grandpa gave it to me and doesn’t say it on the registration. Not having any codes thrown or lights on. I DID have my emergency break on the entire time I was changing the part out because I had to switch from drive ..it’s almost like my parking break is stuck? I tried checking what I knew and didn’t see anything . But if I put in neutral the vehicle doesn’t move ..

      I was hoping y’all could help me on my decision. I have a 2019 custom trail boss 5.3 with AFM 6 speed. I called the local dealership here and asked how my warranty would be effected if I disable the AFM. They told me “as long as that tune didn’t cause the damage of whatever i bring the truck in for all is well.” So they recommended me to a local tuner here in town which was surprising. I called him and he said to disable my AFM it would cost around 500. I do know about the range device but I don’t want to to deal with the battery issues it can cause if you mistakenly leave it plugged in. My other option is the hand held tuners such as a diablo. I have zero experience  with them but I am going to put in a cold air intake and flow master 44 exhaust in the future. Would my best bet be the Diablo tuner to disable the AFM and use it to adjust my truck to my other mods or go with the professional tuner?

      Has anyone ever got a custom tune to delete the AFM on their truck? I contacted my dealership about it and they gave me a local tuners number. I understand that it could possibly void my warranty if deleting the AFM causes a problem. But has anyone deleted their AFM and had issues? As well what cost should I expect to see to have a tuner delete the AFM.

      Chevrolet is ready to race the 2021 Colorado. Like, really ready to race. This week in fact. The new face for the Colorado mid-size truck will make its public debut October 10th during the 2019 Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic and will be driven by Hall Racing. Here's a sneak peek at the all new face of the Colorado. 
       

       
      Chevrolet also gave us a showing of the production 2021 ZR2  that will debut in one month at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Check back with us in November for our first hand take at the new ZR2 when we visit the SEMA Show.  Anyways, let's take a look at the changes. 
       
      What's new with the 2021 Colorado?
      First off, the changes so far seem to be cosmetic and packaging only. No new features or changes in specs have been announced yet. However, the exterior has been warmed over to bring it in line with the Silverado's front end, without breaking the bank on a full redesign (which is expected in the 2023-2024 MY time frame).  Here's the announced 2021 changes. 
      New front end appearance for ZR2 model. Only Colorado model to have "Flow-through Chevrolet Fascia".  WT, LT, and Z71 trim levels will receive updated center bars, lower fascias, and new front skid plates.  WT and LT will feature "all-new" gold Chevy bowties while the Z71 trim is adorned with a black bowtie.  All models receive embossed 'Chevrolet" tailgates and ditch the traditional bowtie on the rear of the vehicle.  A new "Sand Dune Metallic" will be offered on Z71 and ZR2 models only.   
      What do you think about the new face of the Colorado?
