Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

3 Answers

Antilock brake system engages on low speed stops on dry pavement on my 2004 Silverado. I have a 2005 Silverado, the brake pedal pulsates and pushes back as the vehicle is slowing to a stop. I replaced the front pads and rotors and the problems still exists. I now believe this is ABS related

    I have a 2004 Silverado 3500 and was told by Goodyear dealer who spoke with the Chevy dealer and did a diagnotice check said that the problem is with a wheel speed senor and they needed to replace the disc brake assembly on the front ride side. Cost $685.00. Checking the internet it sounds like a common problem. I would think that there would have been a TSB or recall. I can't find any. Does anyone know how to fix yourself or lower cost solution? My truck slows down fine until it gets down to about 2-3 mph and then pulls suddenly to the left and the ABS sounds like it is kicking in even on dry pavement.

    Did you ever get your problem figured out. I have the same problems and other than spending 1000 bucks nobody and agree what is causing it..

    I am really struggling with ABS brakes on my 2003 Chevy silverado 1/2 ton pickup truck. The brakes will pulsate on dry pavement ( like the ABS brakes are working when they shouldn't be). The pulsating quit but then the ABS light came on and I had conventional brakes only. After reading that the mounting surface for the sensor could have corroded, I cleaned the wheel assembly mounting surface for the sensor and re-assembled everything. Now, I am back to square 1, except the pulsating is even more frequent. This is very frustrating because I see that there are several other people with this problem but to the best of my knowledge, a recall covers only 99-2002 vehicles. My vehicle has less than 25,000 miles

Very loose front wheels bearings can cause this.

I had new brake pads and all 4 rotors replaced on a 2005 Silverado at a popular repair shop and vibrating ABS immediately began to kick in when I picked up the truck and laid down over $700 for the job. Initially I thought the new pads needed to wear in but after around 2,000 miles I finally called and complained to the shop. I'm certain the shop caused the problem but don't expect any credit or acknowledgement of any culpability on their part, yet I have no idea what alternative I have than to take it in the wallet from Manny or Moe...The ABS is working relentlessly at every stop at the rate of 4 or 5 automatic pumps per second. Darned... I know 2005 isn't new anymore, yet I've experienced repairs beyond maintenance with this Silverado both before and after the warranty expired. New steering shaft, the air conditioner actually exploded with smoke blowing into the cab through the vents...that one was finally recalled. I hope GM will get its act together now that it went belly up in 2008 and shook off Pontiac and Olds. The most annoying part is the time required for these problems to be diagnosed and repaired. I have no engine light on so I don't expect computer codes to give a clue. The Silver in Silverado has been constantly living up to its name.

I have 2002 silverado, the brake pedal pulsates and pushes back as the vehicle is slowing to a stop.I replaced the pads and rotors and the p loblem still exists. I now believe this isABS related.


Hello. What you are experiencing with the pulsating brakes and the brake pedal pushing back is the antilock brake system [ABS] working correctly. Joe

Truck not stoping and anti brake is working.


dosen't stop at all or just slow?, if the abs is working then you should feel the pulseing in the brake pedal just before tire lock-up, the tires will not lock-up with abs fully funtioning unless all four tires or two are in lock-up depending on the abs application, if abs fails it reverts it self to regular braking ability, hope this helps

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,

2001 Chevy Silverado anti-lock brakes activate on dry pavement, the pedal pulsates, the typical anti-lock brake sound is heard, and the truck feels like it is not going to stop at times


One of the sensors has gone bad and needs to be replaced, the other thing to that would also do that is the ABS sensor is dirty or needs to be re gaped to the speed ring on the hub. There was a issue bulletin with your Tahoe on the ABS activating under 8 km/h. Good luck and hope this helps, if not clean out the sensor with brake parts cleaner and check the wire harness and ABS sensor bracket. Re gap the sensor to the speed ring hub. Here is the bulletin. Anti lock Brake (ABS) Activation at Low Speeds (Clean Wheel Speed Sensor Mounting Surface) #03-05-25-007C - (05/16/2006) 2001-2006 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe

Anti-lock brakes activate on dry pavement


First, is the ABS light on? Does it come on when it's doing it? Make sure the brake fluid is full, and the brakes are still servicable, ie, pads still have meat on them. If so, the abs control module or a speed sensor might be on the way out. This is a safety issue, and I would recommend getting the truck to a good mechanic to have it checked out.

Antilock brake system engages on low speed stops on dry pavement on my 2004 Silverado.


The most likely cause is rust buildup under wheel speed sensors causing them to dislodge(lift up) from front hubs and read incorrectly. If recall has been performed to fix this problem...You may have to replace the appropriate hub in order to stop the ABS activation at low speeds. Let me know if i can help more.
