Abs light

Hey Guys,
So I'm new to SSR F and for the first time in the 2 years of owning my 2004 with a 5.3 I have an issue. I have read all the Q n A's about the module issues so here is what I've done to mine about 1.5 years ago.

Installed 456 gears
Used the super chip to recalibrate everything and for 1.5 years no issues until now.

Now all of a sudden at random times the ABS and Brake light comes on but once the car shuts off it might be 5-10-30 miles before it returns. I just recently installed a shield to help with the heat.
Chevy says all brakes are great no issues they think it might be the sensor on the tranny for speed control.
Please help anyone my son at 16 drives this car to and from school.
Thanks
JJROCKS

To be determined soon?
Brakes will still work but ... when the ABS light is on, the ABS system does not work properly. Remember you still have brakes.

First where are located?

Where are you located? There maybe a knowledgeable Fanatic close to you that can help. 2nd. Do not take the truck to the Chevrolet dealer. They will charge you an arm and a leg for any simple problem because it is an SSR.

It sounds like the ABS module has failed. The solder used in the Kelsey Hayes module used cold solder. The catalytic converter is 3" away from the ABS Unit. The solder has allowed some connections to the board to lift. If you cannot remove it yourself take it to an independent mechanic, print of the instructions or show him on a computer how to properly remove and install on an SSR. Click on this link https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=3EF39...%21853&o=OneUp

It is a simple repair. After removing the module (not the whole ABS unit) from the top of the ABS unit, send it to Dragon2U or Dicktator to have it resoldered using the proper solder. It will cost you the return shipping and a small fee.

But before you do all that remove the ground on the outside of the frame directly under the front edge of the drivers side door. Clean it using a wire brush and also the contact point on the frame. Lube with grease.

The Heat Shield was very good move if it came from Simple-Engineering ,but it came too late. It will help protect the repaired unit. You can drive the truck while the unit is being repaired by putting alum. foil and securing it with wire to close the top to keep debris out of the unit. I would not drive it in the rain though.

Here you go, some reading:

SSR HOW TO LIBRARY: Look up ABS Brakes.

https://onedrive.live.com/?id=3EF39D...F39D9F5ADCE5E5

Remove EBCM send to Dragon2U or me, I have repaired EBCM in stock.

03/04 EBCM is different from 05/06 EBCM.

Yes, after you unplug it spray both. It may not solve the problem, but it won't hurt and will clean the contacts. This is what is recommended for Electrical. Home Depot in the Electrical dept. only. Good luck.

Okay all so here's the update.

Last night the following took place.
Removed all Module plugs and sprayed them with Contact Cleaner, also removed the Board and all soldering was good.
Got to thinking about Fuses for Brakes and ABS all good, Then I remembered that a couple of times right when I started the car the ABS light and Brake Light came on, this is over the last year.
QUESTION: Could there be a short or something in the Dash.
Any Ideas guys this is driving me Nuts.
Thank you

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

Many times you cannot determine a cold solder joint by sight. Having the proper tools and good high temperature solder make all the difference. Even though you do not see anything, resoldering these joints marked in red will most often take care of the problem unless it is a bad transistor on the board, another common issue. Make sure you use a good sealant to wrap everything up. I and others offer to do the work, I charge $20 plus shipping.

If you are not familiar with soldering please do not attempt the repair, send it to someone. I have seen MANY botched soldering jobs that make things worse. I can sometimes repair the damage that has been done but it is not easy.

Is the board your problem? Hard to tell, but it is a good starting point.

Other guys know so much more, but a question.
When I installed my 456's I had all 4 wheels off and painted my callipers
My ABS light came on intermittently but has since gone away permanently.
I felt I might have gotten some paint on the sensors and was hoping I would not have to pull the wheels and clean it up.
Fortunately, it just went away,

Quit guessing.

You need to find somebody with an enhanced scan tool that can communicate with the ABS module and check for codes.

Hello Dicktator,
Were still having ABS light issues, I replaced or checked the following
1. New Speed Sensor
2. New Heat Shield
3. Removed the Module and the 4 soldered points looked good.
4. Cleaned all the ground contact points
5. Sprayed Contact cleaner

I'm no expert on the soldering can someone give me the Gentlemen's name / Number to have him check it out, I'm in Calif.
Thank you to all who have helped.
Do you have in stock
Please call me @ 951-655-0869

As mentioned above in my post, there are 13 areas to check, not 4, and you can rarely do a "visual" check and know if it is good or not.
