#3 - Brake Light On problem of the 2004 GMC Sierra
I have a 2004 GMC Sierra that has an electrical issue with the abs or brake system. The brake light, abs light and service brake system light goes off at random times. Might have something to do with the air conditioning because the a/c draws power from the battery and I can see that a certain level the indicators go off. Most of the time the lights chime and blink when I apply the brake but it also has happened when just turned the truck on. I've replaced the rotors and pads to still have the problem. I'm not sure if it's a ground or sensor that is failing. I've found TSB for regrounding, failing sensors, or ecbm. Still haven't found the correct diagnosis. I just hope the abs functions when I need it. The failure date was Wednesday, June 12, 2013.

#11 - Brake Light On problem of the 2000 GMC Sierra
The vehicle involved is a 2000 GMC Sierra. About three years ago I took my 2000 Sierra truck to my GMC dealer after experiencing a few low speed abs activations and brake failures causing me to drift into oncoming traffic. Since tandom log trucks are frequent travelers on our local roads, I wanted to resolve the problem right away. My GMC service manager informed me that the only way to correct the problem was to replace the front hub assemblies containing the wheel speed sensors at a cost of $500 each for parts only. I decided against that idea and opted to remove the abs fuse under the dash board. I kept inquiring at the dealer about any gm sponsored repairs and finally read about the August 29, 2005 recall notice which involved cleaning, sanding, and lubricating the wheel speed sensors. The recall service work was done on 10/13/05, according to service bullitin #05068, but my truck continued to drift into traffic as before. This time I removed the abs fuse from under the hood so I could finally use the cruise control again. The service manager has since told me that there is no authorized follow up procedure other than to replace the hub assemblies or speed sensors, at my expense. The brakes function adequately without the abs fuse, but the red brake failure light on the instrument panel is on continually, as well as the amber abs light. If I go back to removing the interior abs fuse, the red light will go out and should be available to indicate any other cause for brake failure, but I sacrafice the cruise control. Gm has admitted that they designed a defective abs system that is prone to rust and corrosion in certain "rust belt" states and provinces of canada and they are aware that these vehicles have been unsafe to operate. The ineffective recall repairs to my truck cost general motors $46. 88 on the invoice and yet they expect me to pay about $1,200 to really repair and replace their defective parts. I don't think so. It was Thursday, October 13, 2005 when this brake light on issue happened.

#20 - Brake Light On problem of the 1999 GMC Sierra
The car is a 1999 GMC Sierra. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1GTEK19T6X_. When I started my truck I heard a humming noise and my abs and brake light was on. I turned off the truck and the humming noise continued. I looked under the truck and heard the abs module was still on. So I pulled the fuse to the abs system and and the module stopped running. I drove the truck to see if there were going to any problems and found there to be none other than the abs not engaging. So I drove the truck home and parked it hoping to get it to the dealer on Monday. I checked online to see if anyone else has had this problem and I can see it is a pretty common problem. I was wondering if anyone had found out if this was a recall yet or if gm has decided to pick up the charge for this problem since it so consistent with these trucks or if someone may have a fix for the problem other than replacing the part because of the expense involved.
