There was a recall on this module. So before replacing it, call your local dealership or GM customer service and provide your VIN code to see if it has been replaced under the recall. If not, then this should be covered by the recall

558 diagnosed had 5 codes for brake control module. 2 for internal module.Finally, it said needs to be replace EBTCM before any further diagnosis can be performed.


Symptoms:


Stability Reduced light comes after driving for about 15 minutes and stays on. shortly after that the car feels like I am pressing on the brake when I am not and the speed reduces for about thirty seconds and it reumes back to normal.


George

HI,

Ok, this is 100% the EBTCM at fault. There are internal relays that fail and cause these issues. The only repair is replacement as these relays are not serviceable. Unfortunately for you, they are correct in the diagnosis that the EBTCM needs to be replaced.
