are you there
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 8 months ago

Replace the BAS relay in rear left fusebox. If that doesn't help check to see if relay gets ground when pressing brake pedal, if not verify wire that goes from EBCM to relay is good, if so replace the brake pedal position sensor. Here is a wiring diagram of system to help with testing, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.

my name is ***** ***** I replaced the BAS relay with another sensor then what should I do
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 8 months ago

If you replaced bas relay then next step is checking wire between ebcm and relay, if good replace the brake position switch.

how do I do that
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 8 months ago

Also check to see if bas relay is getting ground when brakes are applied, if not check wiring between relay and ebcm. If good replace brake pedal sensor. You need to unplug the EBCM put one lead of meter on orange wire of pin C3 at EBCM, other lead at relay, and this will tell you resistance between the two points.
