Try pumping the brakes 3 or 4 times with the truck running in 'park'.

The light resets itself in our '01 Tahoe because it's a float switch. Recheck the fluid level.

Reply back if that doesn't do it.

    Was it low? And have you checked the sensor? And the reservoir is filled to the fill line as well, correct?

    Pull it out of the reservoir and turn it upside down. If the light stays on, then the sensor is probably bad. If it goes off, I'll have to dig into this deeper.

    Reply what you find.

Chevy 2000 Silverado 1500, the engine stalls and won't start until it has cooled off.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ?

My check engene light bulb is out, and i need to replace ot before my inspection... Need to know where the bulb is loacted to replace?


The check engine light is located in the message center right above the instrument cluster. To remove it you will need to jest remove the a pillar trim. Those are the plastic pieces that run from the ceiling down to the dash on both sides. Then you will need to remove the upper dash pannel. It is held in by clips. Gently pry up and it will start to release the clips. Once the upper dash panel is out you will see the screws that hold the message center in place. Remove the screws, remove the message center, and replace the bulbs. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
