Astro Van 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,700 miles
I have a 4 year old Chevy Astro van with a kelsey hayes ebc unit. Recently the ABS light started coming on from time to time when the engine had been running for a while, but it would go off when the vehicle was turned off and restarted cold. I had my brake system checked and there was nothing wrong with the brakes. The code indicated a bad relay in the computer control system. The problem is that it causes the ABS light to come on and when that happens I have no ABS working. This could cause a safety issue under certain braking conditions. The light doesn't come on all the time so the question is do I pay over $900 for something that I believe to be a manufacturing defect or do I take a chance that when I need my brakes that the ABS system will work. As of now, I have not replaced the part. The dealer indicated that the part # was 12478045. This part cannot be purchased except through a dealer. It is their product.

I have had many electrical problems with my Chevrolet Astro van. 2000 year model. I have only 60,000 miles and it's been in for changing of oxygen sensor twice a new catalytic converteer installed in the first 4000 miles. At 7000 miles I had to have some connector replaced because my van would go for about 5 miles and then just die on me, like no getting fuel. Now for the past 6 months I am having a problem with my brake and ABS lite coming on and when I put on the brakes they grab and let go and it takes a long time to stop. I have taken it to many places and everyone tells me they can't find nothing wrong. I had it hooked up to the see what the computer fault was and it says the relay. The relay is $800 dollars and the mechanic says it may still not be the problem.
