Loss of communication with brake control module is exactly what it says. There is a problem with the wiring harness that goes to the ABS controller. You might make sure it is plugged all of the way in. You might also unplug it and make sure there is no corrosion or damages pins in the connector.

SOURCE: 98' Ford Windstar has a spongy brake

Have you had anyone try to clean and adjust the rear brakes? You will need a shop to scan the van for ABS codes first to cure the ABS light.

SOURCE: transmission doesnt shift abs & brake light on speedometer doesnt work

I had the same problem with ABS light and speedometer, I was told that it is the transmission control module. It has not yet stopped shifting but I have had times where it just wont stay running. It will start and then stall. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: brake light stays on after replacing brake line and bleeding

You may need to do a code scan,this will reset the computer and reset any codes if the brake problem has been taken care of.Autozone Shucks/Kragen/O'Reilly's will do this for free.

SOURCE: bad brakes on gmc suburban,

Gravity bleed your brakes starting at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder. No pweddle pumping. I Fill M/C and leave cover off. Then open the bleeder and watch what is coming out. Uou can see bubbles. When the fluid drips steady and without bubbles, cole and do the same to the other three. Don't let the master cykinder get low because thr fluid level helps move the fluid and air through the lines.Periodically tap the break lone with your wrench to keep everything moving.. When sll bleeders drip clean and steady. Make sore your rear brakes are adjusted to barely touch the drum. Then top off the master cylinder, cap it and give yourself a "break". :)

The control module ID number list below provides a method for determining which module is not communicating. A module with a class 2 serial data circuit malfunction or which loses power during the current ignition cycle will have a Loss of Communication DTC set by other modules that depend on information from that failed module. The modules that can communicate will set a DTC indicating the module that cannot communicate. When no message is detected from a learned identification number for 5 seconds, a DTC U1??? where ??? is equal to the 3-digit identification number is set.

The electronic brake control module is communicating , no need to bother the PCM . The code was set in pcm because it lost communication with EBCM , PCM not the problem .

!996 Chevy Astro AWD pulls to the left when braking , I have replaced Both front calipers, rotors, and pads bled the brake lines and still it will pull to the left MOST OF THE TIME! when i least expect...


Check front end steering linkages for any play, as well as rear brakes for sticking or grabbing as well. Not unusual for a rear brake grabbing, to cause front end to want to wander.

Brake pedal dosnt apply till close to the floor..recently had a brake line replaced..i was told they bled the brakes. so im not sure if they should be bled again or a pedal adjustment


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. More then likely, they need bled again. Also, make sure that you have brake fluid in the vehicle as well.

Hose leaking brake fluid. under drivers side . just put in new brakes and rotors


If the brake calipar was left hanging by the hose instead of being tied up,that puts a strain on the hose and the brake line causing it to crack or break. The hose needs to be replaced, and the brake system bled of air.

I replaced the master cylinder on my car e now i


ok sometimes a cylinder can be turned try this open bleeder cap on front left side then slam on the brake pedal as hard and fast as you can this will sometimes turn it back the right way. if brake fuild comes fling out it worked. when you bleed then use a hose to go on the end of the cap and the other end in a bottle of brake fuild so it cant get air back in the line. good luck

I bled the brakes after replacing a broken line and the brakes are still soft when started. im sure the air is out of the lines. what else could i check


If you replaced the line without replacing the rotor and pads this thing leaked fluid on it will never work right. Once brake fluid leakes unto pads an rotors they are useless.
Furthermore, if the brake hoses are worn they should be replaced.
Lastly recheck the fittings of the line you replaced . make sure you didn't cross thread the fittings and the connection is tight.

!988 k1500 4x4 5.7l brakes


Bleed right rear,left rear, right front, left front in that order to be sure of good bleed but the brake booster makes it easy to push pedal. Make sure of no leaks from master cylinder. Otherwise brake hoses being soft will also hurt baking quickly.
