Brake Abs Warning Light problems of the 2007 Chevrolet Colorado
Three problems associated with brake abs warning light have been reported for the 2007 Chevrolet Colorado.
Brake Abs Warning Light problem #1
The car involved was a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado. The VIN of this vehicle was 1GCDT19E57_. The brakes began squealing at mainly low speeds so I took it to midas. They claimed chevy has some sort of defect because the rotors were pitted and damaged and it should not be with a vehicle with less than 35,000 miles. This vehicle is not used hard hence the mileage and it is 5 years old. They claimed that when they called the chevy dealer, chevy claimed that both rotors and hubs needed replaced on the model because this is a known issue with this model of truck. I had them replace everything which cost me around $1,300 dollars and now the abs default light will not go out. I have never owned a vehicle that needed this much work to the braking system and that cost this much to repair with less than 35,000 miles on it. This needs to be reviewed and if this is a defect that chevy is aware of, they need to both fix the problem and compensate individuals who have made this very expensive repair because this is wrong. I would appreciate if someone could look into this problem because I am not getting any satisfaction on this from anyone else. Thank you. The failure date was March 23, 2012.
Brake Abs Warning Light problem #2
The car involved is a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado. When the vehicle is start the abs fault message is given and the abs light illuminates. On other occasions, as the vehicle is driven after being started a clicking/grinding noise emits from the front drivers side area then the abs fault message is given and the abs light illuminates. The abs then will not function or will function each time the brakes are used even in a situation where they should not be locking up. The fault has began between the time the vehicle is started and 25mph. This problem occurred on Fri., Dec. 2, 2011.
Brake Abs Warning Light problem #3
The car was a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1GCCS19957_. Abs warning light goes on and abs engages even at low speeds, very strange and possible dangerous situation. Took vehicle to mechanic and he advised the design was terrible and could not replace the sensor but rather had to replace the both front hubs that included a new sensor@$1300. Gm should think about a redesign and/or recall to fix this problem. This is a potential safety issue. This brake abs warning light problem happened on 08/24/11.
