Brake Light On problems of the 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe
Three problems linked to brake light on have been reported for the 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe.
Brake Light On problem #1
The car involved was a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Chevrolet Tahoe is 1GNEK13Z03_. I had driven to a doctors office and parked in the lot. I came out, started the truck and when I applied the brakes the pedal went all the way to the floor. The brake warning light never came on. I had the vehicle towed to a local dealer. The brake line on the passenger side of the vehicle rusted through and failed. I had the entire passenger side line replaced. On June 24th 2013, I had another brake line failure on the drivers side. I was going 40 miles per hour, came to a traffic light that turned yellow, applied the brakes and the pedal went all the way to the floor. I went through the light and managed to stop using the lower transmission gears and finally the parking brake. The brake warning light never came on. I had the line repaired at a local garage. The line rusted through near the abs unit. The truck had just over fifty thousand miles at this time. The failure date was Tuesday, December 27, 2011.
Brake Light On problem #2
The car was a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe. My brakes failed completely as I was driving home I was only able to stop by going up hill. The brake warning light did not go on until the brakes were failing. We had the car towed to our service station and had to replace the complete brake system. It was 08/14/2012 when this brake light on issue happened.
Brake Light On problem #3
The vehicle is a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe. On the evening of July 13 my wife was driving the Tahoe when the check brake warning light came on. She was able to enter our driveway and stop the vehicle. The next morning I checked the vehicle and there was no resistance on the brake pedal and the pedal went to the floor. Looking under the hood I found the brake fluid reservoir was empty. The mechanic that repaired the vehicle found the rear steel brake line rusted out. The vehicle is only 11 years old and has 116,184 miles and I feel that it is a bit premature for the brake line failure due to rust. I owned two Chevrolet's and a Ford product for over 20 years each and never had a problem with the steel brake lines. This issue happened on Fri., Jul. 13, 2012.
