Customer Question
Hello ihave a 2007...

Hello ihave a 2007 suburban we just bought used there is a message on the dash saying service brakes soon but no other warning lights and I cant figure out the problem or clear it

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

All lights come one when u crank it and turn off I have not checked the fuses

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Suburban yourself? What have you tried so far?

My father has been a mechanic for 40 years and use to be a gmc mechanic as well he cant figure it out , he said he scanned it and got no codes , he dosent know what it indicates or what its telling him to do,

Hi Im David thanks for visiting the site. You will need to have it scanned for codes in the brake module in order to know what the actual problem is. The problem with this is that generic scan tools will not read these codes. This means that you would have to take it somewhere that has a scanner capable of reading the brake module, typically a dealer. There is a GM service bulletin that addresses this message being on, but only if a specific code (C0229) is set. If you need more info, please ask.

how do I find the brake module
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

it can indicate alot of things, brake pads, low brake fluid, brake shoes, bad proportioning valve, bad ebcm,.... the scan tool will be able to interogate the brake module through its interface with the pcm.
