Re: brake light on vehicle lit up on dash
Check the parking brake sometimes a slight bump can make that light come on... pull it up then disengage it roll the car back and forth and see if it goes out.. 2nd make a heavy salt and water solution and completely drench the brake calipers with it move vehicle back and forth working brake...then spray off immeaditaly with a hose... this should clean up the abs sensors... if ithe light still stays on it may be a malfuction in the cars obds ( on board diagnosis systems..) unpluge positive termianl from your car let it set off for like 3 mins then put it back and start car see if the light stay on after you take it for a drive... if none if these work take to your dealer ship to replace the abs sensors... it wont be cheap....

the abs light will come on when you turn key on and go off after engine starts (3secs),it will also come on if you brake harder than required,to stop the wheels locking.If it comes on at other times it could be reservoir needs topping up or an abs fault(check it by standing on brake pedal at 30kph(wheels should not lock up until 3/5kph.)read antilock brakes or antiblocking brakes, 2 different systems.
Try to do the crank relearn: Ensure that your battery is fully charged before attempting the relearn procedure. Do not leave any battery charger or jumper cables attached to the battery. Close the hood completely. Some applications require that the doors remain closed during the procedure. 96-99 S10 1. Rotate the key to the start position to attempt to start the vehicle (the vehicle will not start). Allow the key to return to the all position (same as if the vehicle would have started). The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes. 2. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns oft) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt tostart the vehicle. The vehicle should start on this cycle. 3. Once the vehicle is running, the password relearn is complete.
00 + S10 1. Rotate the key to the start position to attempt to start the vehicle (the vehicle will not start). Allow the key to return to the on position. (same as if the vehicle would have started) 2. The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes. 3. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns off) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt to start the vehicle. 4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes. 5. On the next cycle of turning the ignition key from off to crank the vehicle should start 6. Once the vehicle is running, the password is learned and this completes the cycle. 7. Clear any DTC's with a scan tool if necessary. DTC history will be cleared after 100 ignition cycles.

You have a bad multifunction switch in the steering colum. The same thing happened to me on my 2001 LS Blazer. There was a recall for this item, and if you go to your Chev dealer they can run your VIN and see if it had already been replaced under the recall. If not, you may be in luck for a free fix.
That was not my luck, even though I had the same failure it had already been "fixed" during the recall, and that repair cost me over $300.00
