Customer Question

2 sensors come on and lock the vehicle from moving. Code C0131 came from the test
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Saturn. The Saturn Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: Its the TCS and Electronic Stability Sensor.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: The longer I drive the brakes get harder to push and the car has to rest until its ready to move. It always starts however. Andbthe brakes will be really loose until it stops again
JA: Is there anything else the Saturn Mechanic should be aware of about your Saturn?
Customer: Yes I am. I don't want to pay $110 for another diagnoatic at GM
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Saturn Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

What do you mean?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
For this code per the diag you verify the brake lights work. If so then replace the BPMV then reset and retest. If the code returns then replace the EBCM.

I can't do it alone and took it to a mechanic but theh said they need to know the exact problem
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
I have already provided the diag steps for this code the repairs you should follow when getting this code. You need to do exactly what the diag steps state to do. Replace the BPMV then reset and retest. If the code returns then replace the EBCM.
