Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
When braking you can here a light clicking noise sometimes and less frequently will seem to lose the power brake system when you are close to stopping.
It's quite possible you may need to check out your ABS system. Certain GM light trucks of that year, and a few in subsequent years had issues with the EBCM (electronic brake control module) These units are mounted on top of the ABS valve body, under the vehicle, on the left frame rail (all the brake tubing is attached). Sometimes the faulty unit would cause the electric ABS motor to continue running even after ignition shut down. Sometimes they would cause erratic ABS actuation.The other thing may be a faulty vacuum check valve at the brake booster. If that valve goes bad, your brake pedal will be really high and hard to depress. On some 1/2 ton GM trucks with vacuum assist power brakes, there is an electronic sensor that measure vacuum to the booster. In those instances typically a warning message will come across the drivers info center on the instrument panel. I hope this info can help.
