Can a failing ignition switch cause the Brake & ABS caution lights to illuminate? Doesn't happen every time. Took it to the dealer; no error codes.

With this truck anything is possible when stray signals are sent on the serial data path. It would not be a bad idea to swap it out just to see since it is quite cheap to do.

Beside the fact that it would be good practice if you ever need to do it at night in the rain or some other in-opportune time and place.

Guess I'll have to review ignition replacement. Since I have an ignition switch I bought several years ago.

other possibilities from experience
1. Bad Ground connection
2. Low Battery (sending less than 9 volts)
3. Heat (thanks Chevy for installing module next to catalytic converter)

Fact is I need to diagnose my own system again, which thanks to Houston summer I am prognosticating on :wink2:

Bill, probably # 3 ... that's my problem, I need a new ABS Module as the lights come on after I drive it for about 30 minutes. Let it set and they go off and are good for another 30 minutes. tennesseecozydog :ssr

"With this truck anything is possible" You just "ain't" a whistling Dixie, Dragon2U !!! Ignition Switch, Transmission Cable Bolt, OEM Fan, Lower Radiator Brace, ABS Module, Transmission Control Module just name a few. But I'll tell you this, even with all the Gremlin's they are one fun "little truck" to drive ... there is absolutely nothing on the market today like 'em. So just fix it and try not to worry about it. tennesseecozydog :ssr

What did I leave out "Dragon" ??? Bob Alexander
