ABS not working

ABS not working

Postby D-Wat [OP] » Jan 24 2013, 12:29am

Hey guys I am pretty new here. I was driving my 05 Chevy 1500 Crew Cab today and everything was fine. I stopped at the grocery store to get some things and when I came back out and started my pickup the brake light and ABS light on the dash were on and my DIC said service brakes. I talked to one of my friends who used to be a GM mechanic and he said it could be the cold. In Fargo, North Dakota it has been below zero for most of the day the last couple days. I was just trying to get your guys opinion on this subject. Has this happened to anyone else??

ABS not working

I had the same thing with my 2008 a few months ago and I was just low on brake fluid. The sub zero temp could be a factor but the low fluid is the best suggestion I have at this time. Hope it helps.
