This truck probably has Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) brakes. There is a small black module near master cylinder that is the brain for this system. There are ways to check for diagnostic trouble codes in this system. Once you have any codes set, diagnosis can be fairly simple. PROCEDURE:
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) 's can be displayed by jumping terminals "A" and "H" of the Data Link Connector and observing the flashing of the "BRAKE" warning light. This should only be done when the brake lamp is "ON".
The terminals must be jumped for about 20 seconds before the code will begin to flash. Count the number of short flashes starting from the long flash. Include the long flash as a count. Sometimes the first count sequence will be short. However, subsequent flashes will be accurate. If there is more than one failure, only the first recognized code will be retained and flashed.

NOTES:
DTC's 6, 9 and 10 will only turn the "BRAKE" lamp on while the fault exists. These are soft codes faults and can only be read with the Tech 1 scan tool.
Do not jump terminals "A" to "H" if the "BRAKE" lamp is not on. Jumping the terminals with the "BRAKE" lamp off will set a false DTC 9. This will turn the "BRAKE" lamp on and disable the antilock system.

    I have a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 2wd pickup. The check engine light along with the service stabilitrak and traction control lights also came on. It runs rough at idle or low speed. Where do I start?


    Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . If the check engine light starts flashing , park it . The flashing check engine light is telling you there is a catalytic converter damaging miss fire happening . An they can be damaged very easy .

    Can't get 1998 Chevy Pickup 1500 out of part also has no back up lights. Have already replaced brake switch and Park Neutral Safety switch but still have problem. Any advice?


    Have you checked to see if the fuse is blown? The brake lights have to work to get the truk out of park as thepower from the switch opens the gate in the steering colum to let the shifter into gear.the brake light fuse is in the underdash fuse panel. while checking fuses check them all as some circuits effect others so any blown fuse can cause this problem eventhe fuse panel under the hood. The tailight circuit boards are well known to fail and cause blown fuses so unplug the tailights at the light change the fuse and try to ge it out of park If it works plug one at a time the tailights in and you'll find your problem the circuit boards are a common problem so they can be aquired at most parts stores.
