Hi. You need a new Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM). It can be done by you but it is in a very tight place. Small torx head screws that are facing the floor boards to remove this module.

Need to have a qualified break mechanic take a look at the ABS light, winter is coming and you need the ABS working. Speedometer could be as simple as a fuse. You can get a free diagnosis from Autozone or Kragen www.autozone.com/autozone/

P0300 Code 99 Chevrolet silverado 1500 5.3L


Random misfire. Computer cannot figure out which cylinder is misfiring or it occurs randomly on all 8 cylinders. A friend of mine found his ABS system was kicking in while driving down the road, feeling like the engine was missing. Computer detected it as a P0300 random misfire. He removed ABS fuse and eliminated the problem.

I have a 99 chevy my abs light on dash is on once that happens the break ligjt comes on speed gage stops wooking then transmission does not want to go shoft onothing ive checked fuses replaced te speed...


ok first lets address the abs light. Have you tried to have the codes read?usually an abs light is due to a faulty wheel speed sensor. once that happens with the brake light and speedometer quites working, it sounds like the truck goes into shutdown mode as to not damage the truck any more. The first step is to find out what codes are thrown and address the problems then go on to the next problem.

Dash lights, speedometer light, gear indicater lights don't work on 99 gmc truck


Hello,

The gear indicator display can be repaired, the problem is due to a failed solder joint on the circuit board, it's not a difficult fix. There's a guide available for it here - Silverado odometer problems

Could be a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Located on the transmission. Not an expensive fix at all. Have a diagnostic check run on it from any auto parts store if you have a check engine light on.
