ABS Brake System


Got my 2004 silverado truck towed to get the clutch plates relaced. Got the truck it runs fine but 5 miles from the shop the ABS and Brake warning light comes on with alarm noise. Could the towing or clutch work cause the brake warning lights to come on. Anything I could do or send to the shop on monday?



bump to the front


There’s not a problem with the ABS. If there’s a problem with the primary brake system where it causes the brake warning light to come on, the ABS light automatically comes on. This is because the ABS will not function if there’s a problem with the primary brake system.

The first thing to check is the brake fluid level. If that looks good, then bring it back to where the original repair was performed and ask that they recheck their work to make sure they didn’t cause this problem.
