    Hello Joe22306,
    There maybe some places that do read codes in your area but, I cannot recommend anyone. Because you are still experiencing the concern I could have an agent look at your situation further. However, they do require that you take it into a dealership to have it diagnosed. If you want to do that please email me your VIN, current mileage, contact information, dealership and best time to contact you. You can get my email by clicking on gmcustsvc. Thank you,

  • Just a Followup.

    I got a call back from the dealer telling me that they cleared the codes, and I needed brakes one.. ~$1100.. I explained that ABS kicks in randomly when the truck is 'cold' so they said they would call me back in a few hours after letting the truck cool off. The Chevy Dealer now says that the hub bearings are failing on both sides and recommend I replace the hubs / brakes / rotors / sensors.. over $2500 for the job. seems a bit excessive.

    they also said it could be an issue with low voltage, but didnt go too much into detail. yes, this started around when my factory battery died on me a few weeks ago come to think of it. but I dont see the connection.
  • I have the same problem as everyone else. I have a 2005 Colorado Z-85, 4x4. Two weeks ago my ABS system would kick in when stopping at slow or high rates of speed. It does this 3-5 times, then the light comes on my dash board and ABS disengages.

    I took it to the dealership this morning. I got a call an hour ago saying the diagnostics read that both front left and right abs sensors have errors and need to be replaced. This also requires both hub assemblies to be replaced. I asked the service technicician if it makes sense that a vehicle with 72,000 miles on it would have both front ABS sensors go bad within two weeks of one another. He said it does not make sense but it is what the computer says.

    I am not paying $1,175 to have something fixed that does not make sense. I think it is pretty obvious Chevrolet has a problem here.

    I have a 2005 Canyon 4x4 with less than 25,000 miles. Never off-road, never abused with the same abs problem, comes and goes. This is without a doubt a GMC issue. GMC needs to step up and make this right.

    My 2006 Colorado started the same way last year. There was about 30000 miles on the truck and I had owned it nearly three years. i finally got around to having it repaired last week.The diagnosis was faulty left wheel sensor. Labor and parts would be about $227 but as they got into it they found the back side of the bearing had rusted and forced the exciter ring to ride along the sensor and damage the sensor.
    That added another $350 to the bill. The mechanic said the other side was rusting and would most likely do the same. I was told this was a design Chevy has changed.
    Hope your extended warranty is better than mine. This should be a recall repair.

    Hello Joe22306,
    Thank you for the update. I am glad that the dealership figured out the cause of your concerns. I know $2500 can be a lot of money, and I looked through the case notes and it looks like you are going elsewhere for the repairs. If you have any further questions please let me know. Thank you,

    My 2005 Colorado is having a problem with the ABS Fault light coming on and the pedal gets hard and brakes barely function. This appears to be a well known problem to GM. I guess they will take care of it when I go through the a** end of another car.
  • I have the exact same issue, but I'm stationed in England and Chevy dealerships won't touch and don't know what a truck is! I am not popping any codes, but England roads are wet and get very slick and I am scared of the brakes giving out and I can't stop!! GM might do a recall when I send them the bill lol
  • I am very concerned since my truck started having ABS faults about two weeks ago. I haven't been able to find anyone that can help with this issue. We have taken the truck to three different shops with no fix yet. The brakes have been replaced, the sensors have been replaced and still there is no correction for this problem. After reading multiple posts about this same type of error, I have posted a formal complaint on http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/index.cfm . All of you that have this same problem, please go out and do the same thing as well. Maybe we can get GM to wake up if we all post to the NHTSA and get them checking into it. Maybe if they get 50+ complaints in a couple of days, they will truly help us out.
    Thanks
  • Have you had any luck with getting the error to go away? I am getting so frustrated with my truck! Please reply if you have or haven't had any luck and what you did if you were able to get it fixed. I have reported this problem to the http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/index.cfm

    Hello Bethanya,
    I apologize that you are experiencing a concern with your vehicle. Did you take the vehicle to independent shops or GM dealerships? Do they clear the code and it keeps coming back or are you feeling problems with the brakes still? Thank you,

  • I just fixed my ABS fault problems the easy way. I traded my Colorado in on a 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. The Spot Trac seems so much more refined than the Colorado. And NO fault codes. lol. Good luck everybody, I'm still going to follow this thread, because I'm curious if GM is going to come through for everybody and issue a recall like they should.

    Hello John_S,
    Can you tell me a little more about what is going on with your vehicle? Also, have you had the vehicle diagnosed for the concerns? How long has the issues been present in the vehicle? Thank you,
