Question about 2001 Chevrolet Suburban
I got out of the car one day and heard something running. I was out of town and it was late Friday. The local dealer pulled the ABS fuse and advised I get it looked at when I got home. Upon returning home I was advised that it might be a failure of the ABS relay and that before spending a lot of money I should swap the A/C relay with the ABS relay to trouble shoot it. I see the A/C relay in the fuse box but where is the ABS relay?
The ABS relay should be located in the fuse box located on the drivers side inner fender in the engine compartment. Lift the lid and check the location diagram on the inside cover to locate the correct relay/fuse.
A related issue may be a loose ground wire. There is one located on the top rear of the engine block. It is a bolted connection. Remove this bolt, clean the surfaces and replace. This simple step has cured many electircal issues on these trucks.

The problem is the abs module. When the module goes bad the pump will run continuously. The only way to fix the issue is to replace or rebuild the entire module. First go remove the abs fuse (fuse box under the hood) temporarily( so your battery doesn't run down). It is still safe to drive, but remember you only have standard brakes now, not abs, so allow plenty of room for braking. You have then got to replace the abs module or find a rebuilt one. Don't try to repair the module yourself.Too many things can go wrong. If you can safely remove the module, contact module masters online and they will rebuild yours for around $150. Thats a good deal by the way. Most suburbans and yukon xl locate the module under the car below the driver seat. The brake lines can be difficult to remove an can get bent up. Remember to mark which line goes to what port so reinstallation isn't as hard as I made it with mine.
