I have a 2001 Express also
Having the same problem, confirmed myself that the socket are bad, the actual problem with the sockets are the way "they" attach or make contact with he ground wire to the socket. Its a pressure fit and my guess is dissimular metals. Add moisture to the picture and you get corrosion. I replaced both sockets to correct this problem. Using a NAPA replacement part.
You would think this would call for a re-call.

Jan 15, 2007 (7:19 am)
(2003 express cargo 3/4ton, 34k miles, not heavy-duty use.) about 10mph the brake pedal mushes. mechanic diagnosis: replace front wheel bearing assy as the sensor is within that. 1)it seems this is premature for $500 repair. 2)could a pressure washer washing under the wheels have triggered it? 3)if not replaced, can brakes go out, or what are other bad can come of this? suggestions/thoughts?thanx in advance.
#24 of 92 Rear brake "thud"
Jan 18, 2007 (1:30 pm)
I have a 2001 Chevrolet Express 1500 LT van with 90,000 miles. I like the van, however, when I release the brakes, there is a "thud" in the rear brakes. Two different mechanics have looked at them, replaced the pads, adjusted them, but cannot eliminate this annoying noise. They tell me that there is nothing they can do to stop it. Are you all experiencing the same thing and have just gotten used to it? Or is there something that will fix the problem? What is the problem? Thanks for any advice that will help stop the problem (pun intended).

I am experiencing braking problems. During slow driving conditions only, i.e. heavy traffic, excessive braking, the ABS and Emergency brake indicator light is coming on with an error beep./signal. This is causing brake failure for brief periods of time, bunny-hop, etc. and on two separate occasions, potential pedestrian and vehicle accidents. I have had the van at the dealer on two separate occasions and they cannot find anything wrong with the vehicle. Has anyone else experienced this? Please assist.

I need to thank everyone for the answer to my chevy express van brake light problem. After I posted & no one replied I forgot about the post & the dealer wanted $480 to fix it. Since I only drove the van a couple of times a year I didn't have it fixed. This week I decided to tackle the problem, did a search on google & my original post came up. I had totally forgot it. But thanks to you guys the answer was here. Replace the 2 lower sockets, which I got NAPA for $39 & that solved the problem. Thanks again everyone.

My brakes are acting super sensitive and will lock up if even moderate pressure is put on the pedal. I thought it was the front ones only as the van stays in a straight line, so I replaced the front pads, cleaned and greased the bushings. This only helped a slight amount. Anyone got any ideas?
