I hope you have the problem fixed by now, but, it is the ABS control under the truck. You need to go under the hood and open the fuse box and disconnect the 60 amp fuse for the ABS, this will turn it off before it burns up. This however will also cause the traction assist off light to stay lit all the time. To the fix the problem you can pay tons of money ($700 or so) to have the dealership install a ABS control and the problem will happen again over time. Or, remove it yourself, go on ebay and ship it off to a guy who repairs them for about $150 and you will never have the problem again. Also, if you wrap your cable ends with plastic and protect them good, you can still drive you truck while the part is being worked on. It takes about a week.

I have had exactly the same problem on and off for 3 years now - and just solved it last week thanks to another computer site. Remove and disassemble both grounds from the top of both the left and right frame rails adjacent to the front corners of the engine block. Completely clean the green corrosion from the internal parts with fine sandpaper and add dielectric grease then re-assemble. Clean the mounting bolt and frame hole while you're at it. Sounds time consuming and difficult, but it ain't. No more than 45 minutes combined. I am a technical airhead so if I can do it so can you. What clued me in was the problem always occurred around wet or humid weather. Also, the clock would always lose time overnite. That has ceased also. Good luck. Anyone know why my left headlite, when deployed, vibrates and shimmys??? Sully email@example.com

The problem is most often caused by a defective wheel speed sensor for the ABS and traction control, there are four of them, it may be they are dirty or defective, take the wheels off the car (use safety stands) and follow the wires that go to wheel hub, at the end of the wire harness you will find the sensors, remove them (carefully, don't p[ull on the wires) and look for metal flakes attached to them, they are magnetic pickups so this metal can corrupt the signal and turn the waring light on, if they are clean then you will need the dealer to test the system for the trouble code that is present whenever the ABS/TC warning light is on, the parts are very expensive so guessing is very bad idea.
