Customer Question
I have a 2001...

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.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

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.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Suburban 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

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.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

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?
