need a little help from anyone that might know about the abs system of my 2000 chevy silverado 4/4 1500. gripe: abs warning light comes on as soon as the front tires turn, thought it might be the hub bearing as that is what fixed it last time. this time bearing feels good and both sensors read 1000 ohm, which is good. have also noticed heavy wear on rear brakes and very little on fronts could it be related? any help would be of huge assistance.

I've heard the same thing about the trucks (Canadian built being better). I don't know how true it is, but my Canadian-built Z-71 has had few problems. I don't categorize the windshield noise as a "defect" or "problem" per se, since it only occurred because of the bug deflector I installed.

Turn ignition to acc (without starting the truck) step on gas pedal 6 times within 10 secs. I think.

Jan 27, 2006 (3:15 pm)
Hello all, i have a question about my 2001 chevy silverado, when i drive on the freeway and i do roughly 60-70 mph and then i let off the accelerator and start to coast there is a lound rattling kind of winding down sound coming from under the truck. But then when i step on the gas it stops then i coast and it does it again. also when i am at a stop and i take off right oround 10-20 mph the whole truck jitters then stops like right aroun 2nd gearish does anyone know if these are related to one another. if they arent what can they be. i think the jittering is the u joints, but the rattleing on the freeway sound kind of like exuhast. One more thing, the truck is fully bagged with a 3 link rear end could this cause it?

Well I hope you have better luck. My truck 2002 ext cab has a few problems like engine knock,brakes that won't stop you,my truck will pull to the right all the time, lights that burn out every year no reason,my headlight will come on when it wants to,heated mirrors that brake every year I have had it GM fix every year,creaks and groans,driveline clunks do i need to say any more this truck was built in Canada ? Man if it was built in Mexico It would have many more problems, And GM tells me most of these problems are not problem and are NORMAL , This why GM is in Big Trouble, they need to stop sending work down to Mexico for cheap labor, quality is suffering, many Americans are tired of the same old answers they all do that, Watch out GM Toyota new truck is coming , maybe GM will wake up and take care of there customers and not there stock holders pockets . Good Luck on your new truck, my 1988 was like a rock my 2002 is like a lemon.

I totaly agree with you but with one major difference In 1988 when i took my Chevy truck in to the dealer they tried to find a solution to the problem all of my dealer ssy yep we seen that they all do it. Is this fair I paid over 24,000 for a truck that they won't even try to find the problem. I took my wifes honda in with a problem and they bend over backwards to help me even if they don't know they call the factory and get help right then and there. With the new titan and ridgeline these are brand new truck there first years in production but there learning. Am not saying not to buy American cars and truck am saying the competition is winnig the battle, GM has been making quality trucks longer than Nissan,Honda has i expect them to have problem. Hondas, nissian,toyota are bulit here in the USA also. Why are so many of our jobs going to Mexico cheap labor. I have been over all the forms i just hate to see our GM company sink so low, am also a stock holder,They need to make a better product and work to fix the problems not just take a blind eye to the problems and say They all do that. Not all vechicle are perfect but make an honest attempt to find the problem.

I had the same problem with mine not too long ago. I would guess it's your Crank Sensor, that's what mine was ne way they have a rep for going out. I replaced mine and it fixed the problem. Should be about 70 bucks at your local autoparts store.
Hope this helps
