Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Tekonsha 9055 I just bought a 2001 GMC Jimmy. It has a Tekonsha 9055 on it. My Brake light and the ABS light on my dash keeps going on and off whenever it wants. When I bought the truck, they said they had it at a shop and they changed ABS control box and still could not figure out what is causing the lights to come on and off randomly. I am thinking it has something to do with this Tekonsha. Any idea what I should look for? I was thinking of just removing it because I will not be using it.

Hi Heather, I'm glad to help!
Being in the automotive field for over 40 years I have run across some pretty crazy stuff that causes the ABS light to come on go. I one time I found an axle bent and was causing the sensor not to pick up the signal at times. Once on the rear of a car I found the axle nut loose so it was causing the axle to move in and out so the sensor would not send the signal at times. Also other things like frayed wiring can cause this issue because when you turn a corner the frayed wiring falls over and grounds out on something and kills the signal going to the ABS Module. Other times I have found more than others connector issues, where the terminals in the connector are spread to much and looses the signal. Heather, things like this is what you need to look for with your ABS issue. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Heather.

Phil,

First off where are you from? If you have an Australian Based Version then there is a portion of the control unit that can short and illuminate the vehicle brake lights. If this is a US version then I would first disconnect the red wire on the brake control unit. If the lights stay on, I would suspect faulty brake switch. If they turn off, then something is shorted in the brake control unit. thanks paul

if the brake pedal is low than the problem could be that the brakes need replacing and the other problem could be a problem with the ABS system

SOURCE: I need to wire an electric brake controller in my truck

you can either wire it straight or gm makes a connector that plugs into the drivers side floor . theres a box down there that has a cover over it and the gm connector plugs straight to it. but be careful because i have seen several times were gm wired it wrong the stop light plug is in the wrong spot.take a test light to ground touch each connector while pressing and releasing brake pedal the one that lights the light, is your stop light look on there connector and check to see if that plug is going to the red wire if not move the red wire to that spot. as for wiring it you have to do it this way. black wire goes to constent hot, white wire goes to constent ground , blue wire goes back to your trailer plug for your electric brake, and red wire as you know by now goes to the stop light.

2001 GMC Jimmy. Is there a fuse I can take out to disable the ABS system and just use the regular braking system so I can drive it into town and get it checked out and fixed properly? The ABS system is...


Under the hood there should be a fuse box, it's going to be one of the big fuses, had the same problem, 01 Tahoe. Found out it was a front bearing assembly. I replaced and it works fine now. Be carful as you will have no abs once fuse is pulled and FYI the abs light and break light will stay on as well. Good luck

I'm trying to install a Tekonsha trailer brakes and need the wiring diagram


The controller should have wiring diagrams with it. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. The truck should have a harness that plugs into the factory harness under the dash. The harness paperwork will describe where it plugs into and what wires go where along with fuse location. If you don't hav the harness, you can get it from the dealer or the site listed above.

2001 Jimmy ABS and brakes lights came on


I hate to say it, but the abs control module might have died on you. Thats the boxy looking thing under the hood that has a lot of brake lines and wire connectors going into it. I have seen this happen before and it ended up being one of the speed sensors on the wheels but usually its the module. Take the truck somewhere to get the light scanned, and that will give you a better idea of what it is.

Our truck has an Accupower Digitrac II electric brake controller


When I googled again, I found a reference which included a manufacturer's name - Tekonsha.
I then googled Tekonsha and found Tekonsha.com, and it led me to a technical support section in downloadable Adobe format with instructions for all of their brands of electric brake controllers. The instructions are very thorough and include installation, operation and troubleshooting.
