Christina I do apologize I have only only one reference number it is 71-894111161 But I have had contact with 4 different Customer Relationship Specialist. Here they are Dan on two occasions, Erci two occasions Ryan and Jason on two occasions. Truck continues to have abs faults. My rear right breaks continue to lock up on me constantly almost causing cars to run into me. I did another diagnosistic just to have them tell me the computer diagnostic shows now activitiy yet I drive this truck every day and I know what it does. The Service manager at my local Chevy dealer drove my truck around the block and in an wise smile said " I see nothing wrong with your truck" making me feel like a complete idiot in front of others. Add insult to injury.

Christina, I posted my problems back at post 82 I believe. At that time I replaced both hubs with both speed sensors, all ball joints and tie rod ends. After the fix the ABS came on at different times. ABS system would work sometimes and not work at other times. Now a short time later my driver's side hub is shot for the second time. This will be the third one,with speed sensors each time in 67,000 miles for a total of Five hubs & speed sensors. Christina, on the surface that is ridiculous. Each time a hub goes it takes out the front brake pads. My heater relay is burned out, works on high speed and rarely on any other speed. The driver's window is also intermittent. Would you seriously consider this not to be a defect. Look at all the other posts just on this site. If you have this many on just this site imagine what is out there in the general Colorado owner's population. Most people are not savy enough to find these sites and just suffer in silence. Why doesn't GM do an owners survey or survey the dealers. You guys could easily find out the extent of the problem, you really honestly already know. Hopefully these junks will soon be off the road before they start killing people. What do I do when I really need the brakes in an emergency situation. Step hard on the brakes and expect the ABS to work or pump the brakes to avoid lockup because at that moment the ABS chose not to work. God I hope I am lucky enough to choose correctly!! Care to go for a ride with me?

I'm having the same problem. Originally it happened about 6 months ago and when restarted everything was fine. I couldn't pinpoint what exactly had happened since i was only at the end of my street when I turned around.
Today it happened after dropping my kid off at school and having my foot on the break for two minutes. Again just down the street and the grinding sound of the ABS was going. Once I pulled into my driveway I had an ABS, TRAC, and BRAKE warning. I just emailed chevy, with low hopes. This needs recalled. It is an expensive fix. I don't even want to own it anymore, and I am scared to have my kids in it. We have very low miles for it being a 2005 so it is a shame.

OH - and my heater only works on HIGH. Once in a while it will decide to come on out of nowhere on another level, but rarely. This started in the summer of 2010.

Ive had all the same problems as you. my abs breaks, my windows my heater/ac relay switch. my break lights my tail lights my turn signals and I have contacted GMC on several occations and nothing. This is a joke GMC dont care as long as they sell cars with wont recall these problems. I fully understand you kmartic every time I pic my son from school my abs locks up almost causing the car behind me to hit me. Ive replaced that break system only to have it do it again 2 days later. WTF is somebody really gonna have to get killed for GMC to do something about this??? I read a post here about a guy comming down a steep mountain here in California called the Grapevine. On the way down his breaks locked up sent him toward the center divider at 65 miles an hr. He was lucker he lived. GMC did nothing but his insurance bailed him out and salvaged his truck. He got lucky because he didnt get killed got red of his truck.

I have looked into your case. Have you contacted your agent back to let them know that you were still having issues and about your experience at the dealer? If not I would recommend doing so. Please feel free to email me directly and update me on your progress.
