Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
I bought a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 Crew Cab with 70,000 miles about three weeks ago. Within the last two days the ABS, Parking light, and Service brake system light have flashed three times, at the same time, and several hours apart. I have checked the brake fluid level and the pads, and both are good. I recently had some new tires put on, and got new center caps for my after market rims at a rim and tire store. I noticed the Mechanic having trouble putting on the front right hand tire, because of lack of space. Could he have bumped some kind of sensor, or damaged somthing? I would appreciate some advice.
(1) I would suggest someone scan the ABS system for codes. I Have an '03 silverado 2500HD Crew cab, and it needs an EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module) "ABS module". "Service Brake System" message on dash, ABS and Brake warning lamps lit as well. May be the R/F ABS wheel speed sensor, but what you described happen, shouldn't have caused damage to it.
(2) If the aftermarket rim and tire combo are larger than stock (larger overall diameter), then this may affect the way your PCM functions. You can reprogram the PCM to recognize larger diameter running gear so trans shift points and the speedometer and such can function properly.
I hope this helps.
