Question about 1996 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
While driving my ABS and Parking Brake warning lights come on and the A/C fan quits. If I turn off the climate control switch, the ABS and Parking brake warning lights go out. When I turn the climate control back on it may or may not work and sometimes makes the two warning lights come back on immediately. I've read that I probably have a ground fault and have cleaned every ground I can find. There is supposed to be a VCM ground connection at the rear of the left cylinder head but I can't find one in that area. Any help in locating this ground would be much appreciated. There are no codes stored in primary systems or ABS systems. Help please. I replaced the fan blower motor on the advice of a local GM dealer but that didn't fix the problem.

SOURCE: When engine is turned on,
if brake are only staying on with key on it would have to be in turn signal switchsomehow feeding thru since t/s work off of ignition power and brake lights are powered all the time. check and see iof your turn flasher is hot and maybe un plug it.

I have had this same problem on two difference vehicles both of which are suburbans.
The solution is simple.
Remove the engine cover.
Locate a small ground wire that is bolted to the top rear of the engine block on the passenger side.
Remove the bolt, clean surfaces and replace.
This should solve your problem.
I know it seems too easy but it works.

The chevys with red brake lights and turn signals do two things and I've fixeds alot of them. Looking at the tail lights with the hazard flashers on. both sides flash with nothingeles on? Or are the hazards yellow? if they're red and the third eye does work the turn signal switch is possible problem but it doesn't let the blubs and the circuit boards in the taillights out as they can fail and do some really bad stories the wires for the brakes and the turns and the hazards are the same ones and if the turns look right and the hazards look right then the turn signal switch transmites the turn too as this doesn't work part of your story can't be true
