Expert:  Lou P. replied 2 years ago.
ok, hello, sorry , i forgot about mothers day. so does the car run different when you press the brake? as if the booster was faulty? are the tires and wheels new?
Expert:  Lou P. replied 2 years ago.
do you have the "hydro boost" instead of the booster?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
tires and wheels are pretty new about 1000 miles on them .... not sure if it has hydro boost

Expert:  Lou P. replied 2 years ago.
ok i found it , there is a brake pedal position sensor , the sensor needs to be calibrated to the EBCM ( electronic brake control module) so you will have to find a shop or dealer that will perform the calibration for you. this should take care of the issue. if the sensor reads incorrectly it will keep pressure on the brakes which in turn may not allow the pedal to return as quickly , let me know if this is helpful.

any idea why it would need to be recalibrated in the first place ??
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
what the cause was ??
Expert:  Lou P. replied 2 years ago.
the information does not say why it happens . but this would be the only reason for the brakes to hang and the pedal to slowly come up. i cant see new wheels causing any issue, did you have the truck before and after the wheel install?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes I did
Expert:  Lou P. replied 2 years ago.
ok and does the truck have problems accelerating after pressing the brake?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
maybe for a second or two until the pedal returns ....then it runs fine....its like the brakes stay on for a second or two longer then they should ....
Expert:  Lou P. replied 2 years ago.
yeah, the only issue i can find that would remotely be your cause would be the relearn, other than that i cant see that being a issue, if it was the brakes would stay locked up and overheat and you would have way more issue than a slow pedal return. so its up to you to accept my answer but i dont think you really have a problem, also i see that if the sensor does need calibrated you may also get a warning light on the dash for abs maybe. i realize i am not giving you a 100% dedicated answer and i apologize , but with that new of a truck there are no common issues or bulletins and here at the shop we have not heard of a issue like yours before, i even called my old manager at chevy and he said the same.
