2002 GMC Yukon: pump motor..stop running..abs and break light on

Resolved Question:


Got a c0287, c0267, and a c0265 abs codes from my equos 3160 on a 2002 GMC Yukon/XL. Basically the pump motor will not stop running all of a sudden. The fluid is at full capacity.

I have pulled the 60A ABS fuse for the time being leaving the ABS and break light on.

If the pump motor won't shut off, you'll need to replace the EBCM under the truck. The pump relay is integral to the EBCM. It's about a $1000 repair at the shop, not a particularly fun job if you're a DIY guy.

What would have caused this to happen? Truck only has 75K or so on it?


I have looked into new parts and see about the cheapest for 700+, what about refurb units?

Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 7 years ago.
There is no "reason" that it happens, it's just a bad part. I've seen a few of them, it's not entirely uncommon unfortunately. I've never seen a reman EBCM for this application, although that doesn't mean nobody makes one. I just don't know of anyone that does. I feel your pain, though. My advice: try a junkyard, you can probably find one for $200 or so, maybe less if the proprietor doesn't realize what they're worth.

Check this guy out...


Either that or just accept driving the old way, no ABS.

Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 7 years ago.
That looks like a good option. More often than not, I find the screws that hold the EBCM onto the hydraulic unit to be extremely corroded, thus making them difficult or impossible to remove. If you live in a salty part of the country, you'll see what I mean when you tear into it. Otherwise, that looks like a reasonable option. :-)
