Hi,
This sounds like the brake pressure sensor switch, this is located on the Brake Pressure modulator which you will find bolt to the side frame under the vehicle on the left hand side.
Just disconnect the sensor at first and see if the buzzing stops, you will need to bypass it with a connector wire if the buzzing stops then replace the sensor switch.
Hope this helps
Jason

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.

2003 yucon xl Parkin brake light wont go off when I drive it the warning chimes are on all the time took it to a brake shop siad it was elec problem need to know where the fuse is to turn warning chimes...


Usually it is a switch on the park brake assembly, if you look at the assembly, the switch is either out of adjustment, out of place, disconnected, or has failed.
Should be an easy fix.

Fuse would not just turn off chimes, other items would also be affected.

The Body Control Module (BCM) controls the audible warnings. Refer to Body Control System Description in Body Control System for more information regarding the BCM.
The body control module (BCM) controls these reminders:
• Key in ignition reminder: An audible warning intended to remind the driver that the key has been left in the ignition cylinder. The BCM sounds the chime for this reminder at a rate of 150 chimes per minute.
• Fasten seat belt reminder: An audible warning intended to remind the driver at the beginning of the driving cycle that the driver's seat belt is unfastened. The BCM sounds the chime for this reminder at a rate of 50 chimes per minute.
• Fasten belts indicator control: A visual warning intended to remind the driver that the driver's seat belt is unfastened.
• Parking brake reminder: An audible warning intended to remind the driver that the parking brake has been left applied with the transaxle shifted out of PARK. The BCM sounds the chime for his reminder at a rate of 200 chimes per minute.
• Turn signal reminder:
An audible warning intended to remind the driver that the turn signal has been left on while the vehicle has traveled over 1.2 km (¾ mile). The BCM sounds the chime for this reminder at a variable rate (in unison with the turn lamps on) of 90 chimes per minute.
• Headlamps ON reminder: An audible waring intended to remind the driver that the headlamps have been left on. The BCM sounds the chime for this reminder at a rate of 200 chimes per minute.
• Last door closed locking confirmation: An audible warning intended to provide the driver feedback that the last door closed locking feature is active. The BCM sounds the chime for this remainder at a rate of 200 chimes per minute.
• Feature customization and diagnostics feedback: An audible feedback used when changing feature customization modes. Also used by service technicians during the BCM diagnostics. The BCM sounds the chime during the feature customization, and also during diagnostics. Refer to Body Control Module (BCM) for additional information.

Emergency brake light stays on on my 03 tahoe


I have an '03 Chevy Tahoe and I had a similar problem. I discovered that there is a bare copper striking plate or tab that the medal emergency parking brake pedal touches when the emergency brake is set. It turns on the idiot brake light in the dash. It had broken off and the light stayed on all the time with the say issue of chiming whenever the vehicle is in motion. You or the dealership must replace that striker plate to fix the problem.

Brake light is on and chime is on


No the light and chime does not indicate worn out brake pads or shoes.
However, you were correct to add fluid to the correct level.
Just to be clear, you are talking about the red brake indicator light on the dash and is not accompanied by the amber ABS brake light.
If the ABS light is not involved, there is a magnetic switch located in the brake master cylinder. When the fluid level is low, it triggers a switch in the master cylinder and causes the light to come on.
Some times a "gentle" tap on the master cylinder reservoir will loosen the stuck float and turn the light off. One way to verify the switch is causing the issue, you can disconnect the harness connector at the master cylinder and the light should go out.
Start there and let me know.

1995 Buick Park Ave. Brake light remains ON and chimes on driving


The problem is the car think the park brake is on (intermittently). I would check the park brake switch, perhaps it's loose, or perhaps the park brake is pushed down to the first "click" spot. Also check the wiring connection to the switch, and the wiring nearby. Good luck!
