Thanks to all that responded to my previous post. I tried to fix it myself
and after much cursing the dust sheilds I got to the front abs sensors and
removed them and not seeing any corrosion I cleaned them. Problem is still
there. I suspect I have bad sensor(s) now. However, the problem has been
temporaily fixed by disconnecting the sensors til I can buy new ones.
Question-How can I determine which one it is?
A Chevy Dealer can plug in a GM Computer to your Truck's diagnostic
port, & drive the truck in a parking lot to easily figure out which
one OR both are acting up......
A Good Service Mechanic can spin a front wheel on the hoist and
read out the 'reluctance' value from the sensor cable on a
GM Silverado 1500 for 2000 4x4 ABS sensor Part No: 15112379
Approx. prices: $62 GM Parts Direct..... $ 112 at your GM
Some times a rusty front wheel bearing can take out the ABS
Then you may need a whole front 4x4 knuckle assembly....
This includes an ABS sensor..... and front 4x4 wheel
