Check the hardware for the drum emergency brake inside the the rear disc brakes, these pads are for your emergency brake, there should be an adjustment bolt that just sits between the two pads. Also, check the cables running to this set of pads to make sure they were connected properly. After you have checked the drum emergency brake, follow the cables in the undercarriage and look for the point at which they combine to another single cable, this is the point where the actual cable pressure adjustment is located.

Hi joelalthomas, if they replaced your brakes and you never even made it home they had better warranty the work and as for the "it was a common problem on 2002-2004 trucks" well check for Chevy recalls as this is a safety issue that would have been corrected at no expense to the vehicle owner, do a little more research my friend and let me know what happens, I will check around a little as well in the meantime I would find a new garage.Do not pay any more as you said your brakes worked fine until they worked on it good luck to you As for your 4x4 did you look at the left side when you did the right side? and were they bled off properly? you can visually check to see if the calipers are functioning

Hi, I had the same problem on my Voy 2005 and after I checked the ABS sensors and repaired EBCM ground under driver's door it was the ignition swich that I got from autowreckers for $50.00 and it fix the problem. I had this swich already replaced under warranty.
Job takes 30 min and is easy dealer wants aprox $250.00 to do it

If you have the parking brake system located in the center of the rotor, (the parking brake cable goes inside the "hub" area, and not to the caliper) you have the internal parking brake shoes. The problem is that the drum part gets a rust lip built up and it's very difficult to pull off the rotor because it hangs up. Usually forcing it off stresses some of the hardware inside, but there is not much of an option.
