Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
How do I reset the light on my dashboard that says service brake system ? I've replaced the brakes and they are installed correctly.. no problems.. but the display still shows. Is there like a code ( turn off truck,tap gas 2 times, etc.) to turn this off?? Its a 2005 Chevy Silverado by the way.
Check ABS system for codes. I have an '03 Silverado and have a faulty EBCM( Electronic Brake Control Module, "ABS module"). Can't reset anything. Only replacement of EBCM will fix it. Incidentally, if you have to replace it, you can check on Ebay for a rebuilt unit. You shouldn't have an issue with your "base" braking system though, if this is the case. ABS is electronically controlled and with or without it, your brakes will still function. I hope this helps.

After replacing the wire as stated do the following to reset the light and mileage countdown timer.
To enter this mode, with ignition on, hold the odo reset button (located on the left side of the instrument panel under the tach) for about 10 seconds.
The center of the info display will change to "service". It will have an icon for which service feature and the miles/date left until service is required. These icons are the same as displayed on the I-drive service screen. So, you can go through the Idrive service screen to get familiar with the icons prior to doing this.
Once in this mode, push the reset button to cycle through the various service items.
To reset a service item that is displayed, hold the reset button. I don't remember how long, but the display will change to a reset mode. You must release the button once it enters this reset mode. Then you will need to confirm the reset by pressing the reset button again.
The reset service interval will then be changed.
You can continue pressing the reset button to scroll through the other icons.
I think to exit, simply shut off the ignition.
