Customer Question
The rear brakes on...

The rear brakes on a 2011 Gmc Sierra was replace and now the brake light in the console won't turn off. What would be the reason

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

The fluid is about half and the brake fluid has never been changed. Also there or other signals on in the console, service stabltrak, ABS in on and service traction control why would those be on?

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

Yes the back brakes were replaced at home and only bleeding the back brakes.

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

Hello, Im finally back on line. Answer to last question about the fluid, it was filled to the max but light is still on.
Chevy Mechanic: Todd Audette, Chevy Technician replied 5 months ago

At this point. You will have to have the ABS system scanned for codes in order to properly diagnose . ABS faults can turn on the red brake light, ABS light and Service traction control
