Does the abs light stay on or flicker when brake is applied? If the fluid system was open at all resiliently it will need bleeding manually or can be done with a snap on or an equivalent scanner.

SOURCE: 2000 ABS relay location

Unfortunately the ABS relay is built into the EBCM. Electronic Brake Control Module. That is located on the frame rail, left side of vehicle and sits on top of the pump. Both parts are likely to be replaced together as getting the module off the pump can be difficult. I recommend a repair facility do this job but it can be done at home. You will likely need to take loose metal brake lines and that can be quite a task also.
Are you getting a code for the relay / EBCM?

Good luck

SOURCE: Bleeding Brakes on a 2001 Silverado Z71

Tony,

When bleeding brakes after the system has been opened for service (you didn't say if you were doing any work on the master cylinder) you should start with the farthest wheel away from the master cylinder, which is the righ rear. Fill the master cylinder, then have an assitant "pump up" the brake pedal. Tell them to hold it down firmly, then open the bleeder on the wheel cylinder(s). Do not release the brake pedal until you have closed the bleeder valve again. You'll know when the air is out - there won't be any more bubbles. Since this vehicle is 2001, this would be a great opportunity to flush the system. Just make sure you have enough brake fluid (DOT 3 or 4, depending on your vehicle). Good luck!

The electronic brake control module will need to be replaced. The realy is inside the module and there is no replacement or repair for the module itself.

The problem here is air in the ABS system, you must get the ABS hydraulic control unit bled, this can't be done with a special tool that holds open the poppet valves to each wheel so the air can be completely bled out. You must have the brakes bled at a shop OR the dealer that has this tool or its equivalent. There is no way around using the bleeding tool on this ABS system. I get this question over and over on FixYa.

2000 silerado sometimes brake pedel goes to floor on low speed stops


Brake pedal shouldn't go to floor for any reason. Check brake fluid level. If high, then there is a problem with the master cylinder.

If the fluid is low, add until the proper level and check for leaks in the brake lines.

Is there an ABS light on?

Brake pedal a.b.s pulsation at slow speeds on dry road.It wont do it all the time. It is on a 2000 chevy silverado 1500 4x4. I can hear the abs kick in when this happens.


You may see the abs light come on in your dash. I would plug a OBD II reader in and retrieve the codes.
I would say you either have a sensor that has gone bad or possibly a wire is shorting.
You can see the wheel sensor if you turn your wheels, and look down by the wheel hub bearing.
You can here the abs go whrrrrrrrr, when you step on the brake, and your braking flucuating.
Please let me know what you find.

Have a 2002 silverado and my abs and brake light stays on and the brakes are fine, why?


The warning lights are indicating a malfunction has been detected in either the sensing or actuation portion of the ABS system. Your base brakes will function normally but in the event of an ABS controlled stop on an "icy" or "slippery" stretch of road were the ABS system would take over to prevent a skid, that automatic system will not function.
Have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes to find out which portion of the system has malfunctioned.
Good luck,
Regards,

Abs skipping


If you can test the car without the ABS module to ensure that the ABS is not the cause of the problem, If you have a spare module you can have it replaced for a while to test if the module is faulty,

Abs on my 2000 silverado not working


Make sure you bled the brakes so no air is in the brake lines. Refill with brake fluid.Have someone pump the brakes until they get hard at turn the bleeding nut behind the wheels at the caliper.Do this until the brakes are good and you can stop fairly easy. If the ABS light is on. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery with the engine off. Leave it for a minute or 2 and then reconnect it back. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Remove service brake system display from dashboard?


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.

Bad sensor in one wheel, they are part of the wheel bearing. Could also be a bad abs computer module, either way, not cheap.
