You probably have a faulty ignition switch. This has been a problem with ignition switches on GM vehicles for several years. The ignition switch will cause problems with ABS brakes, cruise controls, radio memories, wipers, etc..

Hi, I put a new CD player in my 2006 Canyon yesterday and shortly after my engine cut out, wont turn over, electrical works but shows "ABS BRAKE FAULT" and "LOW FUEL" but I have half a tank.
Would putting an aftermarket deck in throw off my censors even though I put in the new harness to replace the factory one or is this a random coincidence?

I don't know if that has something to do with it or not. I thought the theft control only made the radio/cd player removed not work for anyone else but with all those sensors..........

Just like JuSe' s problem, my new sony also set off warning lights in my dash. The dealer said the computer now can't communicate with this new radio wiring harness, so the factory radio has to be put back in. Can this be true? Please help

"Bobjj", according to the install instructions posted on the Crutchfied site, there is a secondary wiring adapter that is needed for Canyon/Colorado aftermarket radio installations, in order for all the factory "bells and whistles" to work properly. It's something like $70-80, if I recall correctly, and it's installed inline between the truck's wiring harness and the stereo's. NO, you don't have to put the OE stereo back in, but you DO need this adapter.
(this is part of the reason that I haven't bothered with putting an aftermarket stereo in my Canyon.....)

Wow, thanks for the info. I looked up the adapter and ordered it ( $99.00 ). The OE radio didn"t come with a CD player, so that"s why we wanted an aftermarket set. Thanks again!
#15 of 18 Integrated Roof Antena
Sep 08, 2010 (8:23 am)
I have a 2008 GMC Canyon. The factory radio was replaced. I have installed
an Alpine radio, which it was working very well for almost two years.
Now I have a problem with the Integrated Roof Antena. I have checked all
the connections especially the antena. Everything is well connected.
The radio reception is poor, I have programed the radio to find all the strong
sations in the area, but still looses the signal.
Any assistance wil be very appreciated.
