Amber, you have another topic going regaring the flashing brake light. Are both the ABS and brake light on at the same time?

Yes but the abs litght has been on for 2 mnths and parking brake for 2 weeks so I thought or think they're unrelated?

Chiltons manual for your truck will tell you how to do basic troubleshooting on the wheel sensors and trans sensor. If you check all that and still nothing, then you will need a read. Most shops around me want $40 to read the codes. While that ABS light is on, your ABS system may be disabled. Just a heads up. I've got both the ABS and break light on at the same time, with no blinking, indicating and inbalance of pressure on either side of the pump (air in the pump). I just haven't gotten around to bleeding it because it takes forever. ABS light comes on for the ABS side (wheel sensors, pump malfunction) of the brake system and the BRAKE light comes on for the hydraulic side (i.e. resivor level).

Thanks you for the advice. I've read my Haynes manual and it doesn't give me too much info on troubleshooting the ABS light. Ill probably just need to get it read and hopefully can fix it myself after that. And thanks for the heads up, I prefer having no ABS (: I hate ABS. If I didn't need a safety inspection and still lived in arizona would probably just leave it be.

Hahaha, yeah no kidding. That's what they do around here. No inspections so it's fair game. Even the mechanic I talk to alot told me to yank the fueses. He's doesn't believe in the system.

Yeah the Chiltons one dosen't get too in depth either but it walks you through testing the sensors so you can at least weed those out. I guess they really don't want you messing with it. I can understand that.
Well good luck with it.

So I broke down and took it to my mechanic and the code said drivers side sensor and the bearing was bad. Replaced the whole hub and the light went off and came back on and is now saying motor pack. My mechanic (who I trust. Have know him half my life) said that the motor pack and the ebcm will need to be replaced and its going to be 1400 dollars in parts alone. Anyone have any ideas on how hard this would be to do myself or any other way out of this?

Yeah. Take the ebcm out and resolder the cracked solder connections internally. Redo the ground while you're at it, should fix it right up.

And yes I know it's from 2011, just posting so others can see a potential solution.

Yes, soldering the power connections will probably fix the problem. If anyone needs more info, I suggest looking at YouTube. There are several really good vids that show how to do the fix.
