Anti-lock brake warning indicator light came on. Took to rothrock Chevrolet, springfield, pa. They stated that the ECM module needed to be replaced and stated that it would cost in excess of $1,000. No problems prior. Is this related to the recent recall regarding the anti-lock system computer possibly?
