Chevrolet Uplander Brakes and Rotors

    2005 Uplander. After driving van for 5 or 6 miles when applying brakes I get a loud (really loud) noise. Not brake pad worn type noise but a grinding type noise. If I let up on the brake quickly and apply the brake again the noise will get much softer and or sometimes go away. Noise never happens on a short trip to the store or around the area.
    I have replaced the brake pads, rotors and hub assembly on the front. Replaced the pads on the back. 65,000 miles on the Uplander. Have owned it since 15,000 miles in 2006.

    Don't know much about vehicles except how to change a few parts like the above.

    Can somebody tell me how much it would cost for the following to be repaired. I am not happy with my dealer and I dont know how to find out if something is done correctly on my Van.( uplander 2009)

    BRAKE PRESSURE MODULATOR VALVE INTERNAL FAULT 110
    SCAN TEST FOR ABS DTC'S, FOUND C0111 AND C0115, RELATING TO
    THE BPMV. FOLLOWED THE DIAGNOSTIC ROUTINE AND THE BPMV IS AT
    FAULT, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT BOTH THE BPMV AND EBCM ARE
    FAULTY. THE BPMV NEEDS TO BE REPLACED FIRST. TECHNICIAN ALSO
    NOTICED THAT THE FRONT BRAKE PADS ARE METAL TO METAL. AND
    HAS BEEN ADVISED THAT THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AND
    SHOULD BE FIXED IMMEDIATELY.

    Thanks

    Hi Edwin,

    I can't answer the cost question, as that may vary from dealer to dealer.
    However, if you are interested I can locate another dealer in your area for you to get your vehicle repairs done. Just let me know.

    Sounds like a brake rotor problem. I would go to a brake repair shop (e.g. Midas) and get an estimate. You may want to drive the vehicle with a service technician so they hear and feel the problem and understand what the problem is. Good luck.

    I also own an Uplander and live in Canada. You will find that most general repair shops can fix brake problems cheaper than a dealer. Recently, I had the struts, rear shocks, tie rods, stabilizer bar and four wheel alignment done at Canadian Tire and the work was significantly cheaper than the GM dealer. Shops like Canadian Tire and Midas frequently have sales or online coupons. I would check them out and get an estimate. Good luck.
