VIN: 2GCEK19T7X1****

Summary of Complaint

NOTICED A LOUD BUZZING SOUND COMING FROM NEAR THE FRAME UNDER THE DRIVER'S SIDE DOOR. BUZZING PRESENT WITH KEY ON AND OFF. VISUAL INSPECTION INDICATED THAT IT PROBABLY HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE ABS. PULLED THE ABS FUSE, AND BUZZING STOPPED. FURTHER RESEARCH REVEALED THAT THE EBCM WENT BAD, AND MUST BE REPLACED AT A COST OF NEARLY $1000. ALSO, SEEMS TO BE A VERY FREQUENT ISSUE WITH 1999 AND 2000 CHEVY TRUCKS.*AK

Summary of Complaint

ABS WHEEL SPEED SENSORS 1999 CHEVROLET SILVERADO - ABS KICKS IN WHEN SLOWING TO LOW SPEED (NO ABS OR BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON). VERY DANGEROUS! YOU HAVE NO CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE WHEN THIS HAPPENS. I CALLED SEVERAL LOCAL CHEVROLET DEALERSHIPS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM AND THEY ARE SO FAMILIAR WITH THE PROBLEM THAT THEY CAN TELL YOU RIGHT AWAY HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE TO FIX AND HOW MUCH IT WILL COST (JUST BY ME TELLING THEM WHAT THE VEHICLE IS DOING). I WAS PULLING INTO A PARKING LOT, GOING LESS THAN 5 MPH AND THE TRUCK DID NOT STOP, I BOUNCED OFF OF THE CURB - DUE TO THE ABS KICKING IN WHEN IT DID NOT NEED TO. IF I WAS SLOWING FOR TRAFFIC, I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT I WOULD HAVE HIT THE PERSON IN FRONT OF ME! THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM (I HAVE SINCE RESEARCHED THIS PROBLEM ON THE INTERNET) AND A SERIOUS ONE - THIS NEEDS ADDRESSED BY CHEVROLET AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. MY TRUCK ONLY HAS 57,000 MILES ON IT - THE COST OF REPAIR WILL COST UP TO $800 OR MORE. THE TRUCK IS UNSAFE TO DRIVE. ANY RESPONSE TO THIS PROBLEM WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU. *LA

Summary of Complaint

WITH UNDER 60,000 MILES THE ABS FAILED ALLOWING THE MODULE MOTOR TO RUN CONSTANTLY. CHEVY MECHANIC ADVIDSED PULLING THE 60 AMP FUSE AS THE COST FOR THE MODULE WAS OVER $500. ALOS TOLD TO BE CAREFUL DRIVNG ON WET PAVEMENT AS THE BRAKING WOULD NOT BE AS SAFE W/O THE ABS SYTEM WORKING. CONTACTED CHEVY AND NEGOTIATED THE REPLACEMENT OF THE ABS MODULE, HOWEVER UPON AGREEING TO PAY FOR 1/2 THE COST THE CHEVY FOLKS RAISE THE INITIAL $500 DEALER QUOTE TO $899 WHICH WOULD NOT INCLUDE THE LABOR. AS THE SAFETY IS LESS WHEN ON WET PAYMENT I AM L;OOKING FOR A RECALL OF THIS ABS SYSTEM. THE CHEVY MECHAINC SAY IT IS A COMMON PROBLEM WIHT THE USSUAL COURSE OF ACTION BEING TO PULL THE FUSE AND RUN WITH THE BRAKE WARNING LIGHT ON. AS I HAVE LEASED THIS VEHICLE I HAVE ALSO BEEN TOLD BY THE LEASING COMPANY I WILL HAVE TO REPAIR THE PROBLEM BEFORE IT IS ACCEPTED BACK WHEN THE LEASE EXPIRES. I HAVE COPIIES OF ALL THE COREESPONDANCE WITH THE CHEVY FOLKS ITF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM.

Summary of Complaint

I ALREADY FILLED OUT A VEHICLE OWNER'S QUESTIONNAIRE TO SEND THROUGH THE MAIL WITH MY SIGNATURE TO AUTHORIZE NHTSA TO PROVIDE A COPY OF THE REPORT TO THE MANUFACTURER. REFERENCE NO. 8008990. I INCLUDED A COPY OF A RECALL NOTICE ON THE 2000 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500. THE RECALL STATES: LIGHT DUTY PICKUP TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH 4-WHEEL DISC BRAKES. SOME OF THESE VEHICLES HAVE AN ABS MOTOR CONTAINING AN OUT-OF-SPECIFICATION SPRING CLIP. THIS CLIP COULD ALLOW THE MOTOR BEARING TO BECOME MISALIGNED. IF MISALIGNMENT OCCURS, EVENTUALLY THE ABS WOULD BE NON-FUNCTIONAL. THE BASE BRAKES WOULD REMAIN FUNCTIONAL, BUT THE DYNAMIC REAR PROPORTIONING SYSTEM (DRP), WHICH OPTIMIZES FRONT TO REAR BRAKE BALANCE, WOULD BECOME INOPERATIVE. THIS IS THE SAME MALFUNCTION MY 1999 SILVERADO 1500 HAS. THE ABS SYSTEMS ARE IDENTICLE IN THE 1999 AND 2000 SILVERADO. THE REPLACEMENT PART NUMBER IS THE SAME FOR A 1999 AND A 2000. I DON'T BELIEVE THIS IS A COINCIDENCE, THAT THIS PART HAS FAILED IN MY 1999, WHEN IN FACT THIS IS THE SAME PART IN THE 2000'S THAT WERE RECALLED.*AK
