Brake Abs Warning Light problem #4
The vehicle involved is a 1996 GMC Jimmy. Crash was involved with this problem. The VIN of the problem Jimmy is 1GKCT18W9T_. Anti-lock repeatedly engages and pulsates brakes at low speed stops. Has caused one collision and at least 15 other close calls. Usually occurs when slowing for a traffic signal, etc. At slow enough speeds that the anti-lock should not engage. After this occurs, the abs warning light comes on. When the warning light is on, the brakes work fine. When the warning light goes back off, it is then likely to reoccur at any time. Warning light has stayed on since last occurance and I feel safer as long as the warning light stays on. I'm already paying for this safety defect through higher insurance rates and shouldn't have to pay to replace an obviously faulty system. I just received my 2nd abs recall for this vehicle but it appears this problem addresses a different defect in the same abs system. This problem occurred on Sunday, Nov. 1, 1998.
