The fuse is marked ABS on the fuse block. Mine was under the steering column. I could feel the difference in good brake pedal right away.
#610 of 618 ABS / Lurching
May 15, 2013 (6:04 am)
My 2000 Silverado fuse box was under the engine compartment hood and fuse was marked on underside of the panel cover for the ABS system.
There is also a company that repairs the ABS Units http://absfixer.com/
Do replace brake lines as mentioned if they are showing signs of rust deterioration, mine blew out on the two separate occasions between front and rear, luckily no accident occurred.
My transmission lines and gas lines are next to get done with these rusting trucks. Chevy has a terrible track record with the trucks as far as rust goes, but they got us to buy them so their CEO's get the bonus checks....

Gas and transmission lines too ? Geeze. i've all ready got $2k into the brakes lines, including being towed 75 miles when brake lines went out. I think it;s time to trade, the total bill with hubs n wheel bearings, sensors, brake lines, I'm in $4500 in repairs. Can't stomach $$$ for the fuel and transmission lines too. 2002 silverado.

I had the same problem with my 2003 1500 a while back. After going back several times and having the brakes completely redone on all four wheels it turned out that the ABS sensors were blocked with corrosion and had to be cleaned. have your mechanic check for this problem and let us know how you make out.

just had the same problem on my chevy 1500 01,
horrible grinding noise all of the sudden coming for the rear brakes!
so i pull apart the brakes and calib, and the inside rear brake on the passenger side was completely worn to the metal when the other three were still at 30 percent!?!?
and the caliber was not seized!
stupid chevy cant make rear brakes
#615 of 618 Rear Brake Grind
Aug 12, 2013 (11:24 am)
My L.R. disc rotor was worn to the bone and had metal to metal contact on inside face of rotor when I pulled it apart at my buddies garage. $300 later new rotor, caliper installed and disc pads on both sides. To look from the outside all seemed OK, nice shiny rotor, the damage was all inboard not to be seen with typical brake check. The rotors only had 40k on them when last changed on all 4 wheels.
Now the rocker panel cancer is taking hold spreading like poison ivy. I found 4" wide black duct tape blends in well and covers the 2" x 24" rust hole that is on drivers side and appearing on pasenger side of my General Malfunction rust bucket. Bubbles also showing on passenger side fenders front and rear as the cancer takes hold in that location. Maybe time to buy the plastic fender flare add ons to cover that up. Chevy Junk strikes again.............

dont feel bad about the rocker panels. My 01 silverado extended cab, with step sides, had both rocker panels on both sides rotted out. Just waiting for it to fall apart.

So you had 40K on the brake pads and didn't do a full inspection. If you would have done a full inspection you would have caught the inside pad. In addition, where you live uses salt on the roads, and you have rust. Both of the above items are somehow Chevy's fault?

IF YOU READ WHAT I WROTE, there was 40k on rotors from last change. All 4 were changed at 50k because of the junk metal used by GM. They literally were delaminatng. The front rotors had been turned once by dealer at 10k because of warpage, GM said standard procedure they don't replace nor consider it a defect under factory warranty. The rear rotors were within spec.
The disc pads on all 4 wheels had 20k on them from last brake job.
Yes I live in the northeast and roads get salted during winter. I wash the vehicle often during those times in a heated garage so the salt does not hang out long on my truck. The last 3 GM products (all trucks) I owned turned into rust buckets by year 7. All in the same areas they do to this day ie: door bottoms, rocker panels, rear cab corners, fenderwells
Pay attention to what was said before you criticize. Your not related to GM Sarah are ya ??
