    Just getting ready to go bed before I go out and I look out the window to still make sure it was snowing, haha. I see my neighbor having trouble getting up her drive so I go out there and plow the drive for her. Well while doing my drive I heard a loud pop when I turned and the ABS is on constantly even with the truck in park and no feet on the breaks you can hear the pedal pulsating. Im assuming it has to do with the power steering/ hydro boost system. When I hit the gas you can hear a rattle out of the power steering pulley. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? The truck is not drivable but luckily I have a backup ready to go at all times. By the way its a 2007 GMC Sierra 2500HD.

    sounds like your on the right track... having to do with the pump and brake boost system... you could have the abs code scanned and see whats goin on at a local autozone or something most of the time

    And its always right when doing a good deed for someone else! Would that still be under warranty for you?

    Yeah its under warranty, they replaced the power steering pump today and it did not fix the problem then the techs leave early on saturdays so they will figure it out monday I guess. And of course the guys I plow with have fords so I got my balls busted all night. But at least I wont have to put any money in my front end this spring like they will.

    You have 5 trucks listed in your sig. It looks like you have quite a few backups.

    4 of them are dedicated to a route, so I only have one backup.

    Did you try pulling the ABS fuse to disable the system temporarily?
