    has anyone replaced the EBCM (electronic brake control module??) in any of their chevys. my truck was at the dealer for the ABS light being on among other things. They said the EBCM went bad in the truck and its $700 to fix. I've found the EBCM online for around $300 just curious if i need a computer or something to wipe out the old codes or is this something i just pop in? thanks

    AINT..............If its the troublesome ABS computer (located on
    the frame rail) $700 or more is about right for a replacement unit
    You could just pull the fuse and have NO ABS..................

    There are a couple places that rebuild your ABS unit for $150+ bucks.
    I have seen posts from folks on a few GM truck sites that have done
    this instead of spending the $700 plus for a new unit................

    Interested? Will dig up the info. and post if you are...................geo

    30 amp fuse for ABS == pulling it is happiness!

    No more costs and the brakes work fine, even respond better! ( '97 K3500 )

    Recently had my 01 yukon at the delaership for the ebcm, mechanic told me same thing, unplug the fuse, and will work fine. 98 silverado does the same thing, but yukon was under warranty so had them take care of it, wifes vehicle, thank goodness for warranties, lol.
