Thank you for that information, Mr. Overdorf,
I believe I have found your file in our database using your VIN. Has your address changed since September of 2009 (when you last had a request open with us)? I have opened a new case, and for your records that number is 71-1039872072.
If you would please send us an email verifying your current address and phone number, and if you would please also include your current mileage on the Colorado, we will move forward from there.

Where had you gotten your brakes checked? If it was with a GM dealership, we'd be happy to follow up with them and learn more for you.

My breaks were checked at a local garage. I can arrange to have the breaks checked at Kenny Ross's in Somerset, PA, where I bought the truck. I'm just not willing to pay them double the money to fix the ABS that a regular garage would charge half of. I also printed all the complaints to take a long to Kenny Ross's. I will be going this Saturday, Feb 18. I'm truly thinking of trading this truck if some type of arrangement can't be made. My last vehicle was a 98 Ford Ranger that ran great and lasted me years (and was much cheaper). This is quite ridicoulous that this has not been a recall with all the complaints from owners.

Since you have advised Colorado owners to take their pickup to a GM/ Chevy dealer to 'look' at the problem, I am curious as to what one should expect from said company.
Is there a recall on the ABS system yet?
If a person decides to take his /her Colorado to a Chevy dealer for this ABS issue (and many others that seem to be universal), what are the agreed arrangements between parties for payment, service, diagnostics and resolution followup? Is the GM company going to step up with integrity or just talk a game?

I went to the Kenny Ross dealership this morning to find out why the abs fault light is on and my brake pedel gets hard and will not stop me until the ABS fault light comes on. Well like everyone else on this forum, both sensors need replaced. Surprise!!! I will be taking action to this problem. This is definately a safety issue. I bought this crew cab truck because I have a new granddaughter and needed something with a back seat, and I always drove trucks. I wish I would have kept my 1998 Ford Ranger. At least there were never any major problems with it. I also noticed none of the GM reps on here talk about the safety issue. When there is snow on the road, the truck slides real quick when the abs is acting up. This entire forum will be on my attorneys desk come next week. I don't mess around when it comes to my family!

It is interesting that BOTH sensors are bad at exactly the same time. I question the diagnosis.

I stood there right beside them as they hooked the computer up ( which at first kept getting commication lost due to bad connection) right abs code, then left abs code. I took the fuse out this morning. I will be dealing with this my own way. Once again, the subject of a recall is ignored. This is frustrating to me. But if interested, you can call Kenny Ross in Somerset and speak to Tom Ling. He's the service rep that did the diagnosis.

I was involved (and at fault) for an accident on Feb 23, 2012, While on the way home, i rear ended a vehicle, but when i realized i was approaching a stopped vehicle, i pressed the brake pedal and felt a very hard vibration, (it felt like a jack hammer in the pedal), and the brakes did not engage and i hit them, This is the second time this has happened in a chevrolet made truck. i drive a 2006 chevy colorado xtreme, i heard there was a recall on something to do with the brake system, but looking online i have not found anything, after the accident, my truck was still driveable, and the brakes worked fine. I have not had any problems with them before, but the same thing happened 12 years ago in my new s-10. can anyone offer any insight as to why this has happened, or if it is faulty manufacturer parts? i bought the truck from a chevy dealership in SC and have only had the truck for 5 months. the truck has 51k miles on it and is still under warranty at this moment.
