ABS failure at low speed causing collision in parking lot - this has been a recurring problem with my 2000 Silverado 1500 P/U - resulting in extreme body damage to the truck and a near fatal result for myself and two grandchildren - this truck has been serviced regularly at the dealership, in fact major work was done 6/13/05 and was brought back to the dealership on 7/5/05 with brake concerns.

  • 70,000 miles
ABS system inoperative since 70,000 miles due to burnt control module. Paid dealer $100 to test to find out repairs will be in excess of $900. Module located on frame rail where it takes all water from lf tire. Numerous others that I know of with same problem. No help from either GM or dealer. Duct shields/backing plates completely corroded at 175000 miles as well as the rear differential cover. Vehicle has not been in any unusual conditions. Failure of the backing plate caused emergency brake shoes to become misaligned and damage rotors and service brakes. At 65000 miles gas gauge became sporadic. Dealer service rep informed that they go bad due to cold gas being put into vehicle in winter. Entire pump assembly needs replaced at $380. I realize truck has now 175000 miles, but I know too many others and have read hundreds of posts on message boards about the exact same problems.

The electronic brake control module is failing on my 2000 Chevrolet Silverado which causes a failure in the ABS. I contacted Chevrolet and only offered 20% cost assistance even tough this appears to be a very common defect in GM vehicles.
