Default abs/brake light on dash

I have an 01 Silverado HD and just started getting an ABS and Brakedash lite when I hit a bump. I have checked the front sensors and the plugs on the ABS unit but have not had any success.Any one had the same problem? Thanks

Yeah i have the same truck and my brake and abs light have been on fo two years. Im pretty sure im going to have to replace the wheel bearings in the front of my truck but their so damn expensive its going to wait. It might be just be your speed sensors but you should have someone scan it and see what codes are in the system and go from there.

Id call the dealer and have them run youre vin. I did and the said I had some recall work. So they gave me some new speed sensors, some brake pipe and tailgate cable's. FOR FREE!!!!!!!!! Free is the best

They ran the vin on my 250 and it wasnt covered under the recall because it was the 2500hd if it would of been a 1500 it would of been taken care of. Its pretty much bs though because all of the trucks had this problem.

I have the very same problem on my 2000 silverado 1500. I have reset the computer and checked it for codes and it always goes away when I plug the code reader in but will come back on every now and then. I replaced the brakes on the front and rear and still the lights randomly come on and go off. Ive heard in the past that only the first owner of the vehicle can recieve repairs due to recalls... does anyone know if this is true?

Call the dealer and see if you have had the speed sensor recall done yet. All you have to do is give them your vin and they can tell you.
