You have antilock brakes, don;t you?

That is why you are getting it. at least that is the source. If it's still under warranty on the hub job bring it back. The sliding calipers can stick and require a special synthetic grease... there can be a bunch of potential problems but it's likely coming from that area.

Bad wiring can always cause almost any check engine light, too.

Brake pedal is intermittent spongey on my 2005 silver ado Z71

One of two issues are typical. Either a bad wheel cylinder(s), or a bad Master Cylinder. The sponginess is caused by air or some other contaminant in the hydraulic fluid. It's intermittent because the more often you use the brakes, the hydraulic pressure is built up. If you pump the brakes before stopping, the sponginess will be less. Check all brake cylinders, and Master Cylinder, and possibly a complete Brake system fluid flush.

I have a 05 chevy silverado and the brake system warning light stays on and chimes if i drive. Ive checked the fluid level its full, the parking brake seems to be releasing fine to. i dont know what it...

1. Disconnect the Brake Pressure Differential Switch located on the Combination Valve Assembly. It will have a Purple and a Black wire.

2. Turn the key on, engine off. If the problem is no longer present, replace the Combination Valve Assembly.

Turn signals work until I apply the brake in a 99 chevy silverado z71

I can think of two thing that might cause that problem. And only one if it is happening on both sides. If it is happening on one side, and not the other then you could have a problem in either the front or rear light sockets (possibly corrosion).
But where I would look if it happens on both sides is the wiring. You will need to get under the dash and look for any wires that touch the brake pedal especially when depressed and check those wires for worn insulation.
I had the same problem with my Silverado and that is what it ended up being, after trying several other things that had no effect, I decided to check it from the switch back, and that is when I found it.

My 2005 jaguar s-type sometimes won't start after i have been driving. I never know when it will happen or how long it will take for it to start. When i turn the key it doesn't start / all the chimes go...

first off, if the vehicle was taken in to the dealer for this issue before and it still has not been rectified, you still have entitlement to the warranty. Pull out your owner's handbook and get the 1-800 number for a service rep and give them all the details. I'm confindent that someone will step up and make this right, Especially if you have been a continued customer. Have the VIN ready when you call. It is not a phaetom problem. Intermittent maybe but these can all be tracked down with the proper technician. I highly doubt they ran a battery test or charging system test to get a baseline. Please feel free to contact me again if you need anything further.

I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado Ext Cab Z71, no sound is coming out

Seat belt and any warning chimes do not come from the radio, they usually come from a unit under the dash, what you are describing is probabl;y a blown fuse problem. I would checkfuses with a teat light as some fuses may not appear blown.

Service Brake system flashed three seperate times over 24 hours

2 suggestions:

(1) I would suggest someone scan the ABS system for codes. I Have an '03 silverado 2500HD Crew cab, and it needs an EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module) "ABS module". "Service Brake System" message on dash, ABS and Brake warning lamps lit as well. May be the R/F ABS wheel speed sensor, but what you described happen, shouldn't have caused damage to it.
(2) If the aftermarket rim and tire combo are larger than stock (larger overall diameter), then this may affect the way your PCM functions. You can reprogram the PCM to recognize larger diameter running gear so trans shift points and the speedometer and such can function properly.
I hope this helps.
