Customer Question

I have a 2001 Suburban 1500 LS and the instrument cluster is acting up. First, the brake and ABS messages are lit. Second, the odometer needle jumps and doesn't show accurate speed.
JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?
Customer: Yes, both are lit - when I start the engine, at first, nothing and then when I am happily traveling down the road they both come on at the same time.
JA: Are you fixing your Suburban 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I myself, am a shade tree mechanic and I fix and repair most everything in my vehicle, however, I am not much on electrical instruments and lights.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I need to know where I can get it repaired - if the mechanic can do it, I believe that would be great!

Do you have access to a scan tool to read ABS codes?
