Abs brake system activates at low speed: NHTSA action number: NHTSA recall campaign number: pe05020 05v379000 .
1999 GMC Yukon 4wd. Abs activation at low speed, increased stopping distance, happens regularly. Several close calls, but no collisions (yet). Nhtsa campaign id #05v379000, gm recall #05v-379 suggest that 1999 vehicles are subject to recall, but gm customer service line denies that the recall applies to my vehicle.
Abs has caused increased stopping distance on several occasions. Both at low speed and high speed. During a stop from 60 mph to a stopped condition, abs caused braking to be reduced from about 45 mph down. Minor rear end collision resulted. On previous occasions, abs has released braking when vehicle has gone over a bump in the pavement, causing increased stopping distance. This issue appears to be similar to campaign #05v379000. Why has the 99 GMC been excluded from the recall? dealer has not been contacted - yet.
After two previous "repairs" (one a recall), our GMC abs brakes are now malfunctioning for the third time. The abs brake system activates on dry pavement at slow speeds, resulting in a longer than normal stopping distance. On numerous occasions, collisions have narrowly been avoided as the abs brake pedal "chattering" prevents normal braking at crucial times.
