A 2004 chevy tahoe instrument cluster parking brake light is red,is that due to the overlay or a bulb

If your amber ABS lamp and the red "parking brake" warning lamp illuminate together without any prior pump constantly running problem; the pump motor wires are most likely broken.
The heat shrink tubing that seals the red/black power leads to the motor may have allowed water to enter. The copper conductor turns into a powdery green copper oxide over time due to electrolysis as a small current is applied to the motor all times (even when vehicle is off). The wires will look perfectly intact on the outside even though the copper conductor has been destroyed. The associated error codes will either be C0267 or C0268.
Initial problems will be an intermittent amber ABS and red BRAKE lamp illuminating simultaneously. Over time, the lamps will stay on constantly. In any of the circumstances, you have lost your ABS at all times... even when the lamps are off during the intermittent stage of the system failure.
Dealer specifies pump assembly must be replaced. Not necessary.
The wires can be resoldered to the motor terminal block and resealed with new heat shrink tubing and sensor safe silicone. Do not remove the motor from the pump housing as it is difficult to align the eccentric cam on the motor shaft with the pump mechanism.
This is a common problem that can be solved by resoldering the pump power leads. If the pump runs all the time and the red "BRAKE" lamp has illuminated after pulling the ABS fuse or unplugging the motor; the EBCM (ABS control module) will have to be rebuilt. This can be done for $100.
Both pump motor failure and EBCM failure can be repaired without costly replacement

I put another abs moule on my 2002 Cadillac and lights are still on how do I clear the lights

Have the codes checked ! Do you know what codes are ,What the light is for ? The light is to warn the driver that there is a problem in the ABS system . Have the codes checked before replacing parts ,the code will point you in the direction to go .This system can set numerous DTC'S

What is the C0265 error code

The ABS EBCM anti-lock brake module is failing causing problems with the ABS pump running constantly, also will drain your battery.
  1. Remove the ABS fuse to prevent ABS motor burn out.
  2. You can still drive your vehicle with the module removed.
  3. We recommend covering the exposed surface of the hydraulic control unit with aluminum foil to keep out water and dirt.
Common Failures:
  • ABS Pump Always Running
  • Codes: C0265, C0267, C0268
  • Pump Motor Circuit trouble code
  • Power Relay trouble code
  • Valve Relay Trouble code
  • Dump Valves (solenoids) trouble codes
  • No Communication
  • Intermediate power loss

What is code C1218 and C1245 mean?

it sounds like you may have a wheel speed sensor for your abs brakes giving you a problem it may be the sensor or a wiring problem would take to dealer as they have the proper scan tool and should be able to diagnose in no time with out hooking it up to this tool would just be a guessing game and could get very expensive in a hurry

Abs motor pack

You have valves in the abs block altho the motor might be working it could the valve is not working is the load sensing vavle working on the rear axle. Check the master cylinder is pumping fluid to the pump then check if fluid is coming from the from abs pump when brake peddle is applied. Ps don't forget you might have to bleed brakes once the pipes have been slackened

Can you explain a scan code of c1218 and code c1243

C1218 - Pump Motor Circuit Shorted to Voltage or Motor Ground Open
C1243 - BPMV Pump Motor Stalled /These are codes relating to your ABS system(antilock braking). It looks as though you may have a ABS system pump that has burned out. Replace the pump, not the module.

Abs light is on

Locate and pull the ABS pump fuse located in the power distribution center under the hood and CHECK IT TO SEE IF THE FUSE IS BAD. Basically you are looking for a fuse box with large amperage fuses and some relays. Look along the fender well in the engine compartment relatively close to the battery. It is a 60 amp fuse in most instances and should be clearly labeled "ABS" in the large fuse box with other similarly oversize fuses used for other high power subsystems. 
 All ABS systems are designed so that the solenoid valves in the ABS brake manifold are in safety "bypass" mode when powered down or when the ABS control module has been removed. You will have standard everyday power brakes no different than brakes built without the ABS system.

The ABS system will perform a self check once you exceed 5 MPH and the "ABS" and "brake" lamps should turn off. During this test, the controller runs the pump motor and briefly operates all of the valves. This ABS "self-test" is performed every time you start and drive.

EBCM is short for "Electronic Brake Control Module" It is the advanced computer than controls the electric motor pump and valves of your ABS system.  Burnout of the motor is very rare however. A MOSFET transistor in the EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module) has failed, can cause the pump not to perform.

Pump motors generally do not fail, but when they do, the culprit is usually worn-out brushes or corroded electrical connections. In a worst-case scenario, your motor is beyond repair. It is bolted directly to the hydraulic assembly- a cast aluminum brake fluid distribution hub with 5 or 6 brake lines branching off of it and wiring harness.

I hope this helps before you get your hands to dirty. In short check all the electrical connections first. Try running a hot wire to the pump motor first to see if it runs and if it does, then it's not the motor and could be a easier fix by changing the (EBCM).
