I have a 2001 Chevy Tahoe. I had it at the dealership because the break light and abs light on the dash wear always on. They wrote the following "Checked and found CO265 stored in the electronic brake control module. Checked the grounds and the wiring. FOund theat the module has failed internally. Need to order a electronic brake control module."

Part plus installation is $1,000.00. I am clueless when it comes to this stuff. Does the price seem right. Thanks

ABS control module is a common problem on the early GMT800 platform..........failure is eminent. Unfortunatly this fix is best left to the dealer and the price is about average for a new module and installation.

I just checked with our parts dept, and he said the part cost is $750 or so, and 2 hours to install it, so about $850 to $900 job total. Its a bummer man, but it sounds accurate. I have a customer going through that right now, dont know if they want to dump $1000 into a 6 yr old tahoe with 100K on it.....

dont do what I do, but I know somebody who disconnected the BS-abs on that year model and the truck drives fine. NO abs, but the truck drives fine

food for thought

The same thing happen to me on my 2002 Tahoe
The Dealer called me up and told me it would be a little over $1000.00
To fix….wow ????? I thought that was a lot of money????
So I ask them what they could do to help me out on the price??
They said they would call me back…about ½ hr. I got a call from the dealer
They said it will be $325.00 to fix, that is what it would cost if I had the
Extend warranty, wow from over $1000.00 to $325.00 in a 1/2hr.
By just asking what they could do to help?????? :toast:

I do not know, at that point I did not ask

That sounds strange Rex, I wonder if they got a non GM part? that sounds really low.

So I found a place that will repair the module for $150. The problem is getting it out. I have to disconnect the five brake lines that go into it so that I can drop the whole thing. If I do that will the brake fluid just leak out or does it have some type of ball stop in it.

As trucks get older, they lose the definition they once had in their abs. Nothing wrong with a little truck gut.

O now you made me look…..????????

It is a GM Part, or should I say it has a GM sticker on it????

It never thought of that, because it was at the dealer, Thank you
For thinking for me….LOL:toast:

Obviously this dealership is authorized to customer satisfaction warranties, some are not. Now here is what they can really do 0$. If your vehicle has less than, 50k miles and is less than 5 years it up to the service manager. I am a former chevy service manager. If these conditions fit I would do this for my customers at $100.00. Keep in mind he will run this through warranty and will get paid.

Very possible Larry. THat sounds very logical. IT all depends on how the service mgr is sitting in his "dealer empowerment" statistics with GM. Some mgr's dont want to utilize that power as it reflects in their monthly warranty summary. Some like to try to keep that as clean as possible, some like to please customers and use it often. Depends on the dealership.
