2001 Silverado relearn procedure for the brake issue indicator light?

Asked by Jun 16, 2017 at 11:33 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The abs is out on my 2001 chevy Silverado 1500.  I believe it is a sensor issue
that I cannot afford to repair or diagnose at this time. Unfortunately the brake
issue indicator light is also on and I believe it is because of the abs problem.
Brake pads are fine, brake fluid is fine as well as other common brake issues.

I need to get the brake indicator light off for inspection. Does anyone know the
relearn procedure for the brake issue indicator light?

There is no relearn procedure for a fault light of any kind Especially a brake related one. You will need to have the system repaired before either light will go out. If both ABS and the red service brake light is on you have a serious issue and should not drive the vehicle.

ABS on 2001 suburban and tahoe is a pain in the arse. Only one module available and it is $1300 if you can find one. You can remove the fuse for ABS and drive it without issues. GM knows about it and has a recall, but will not have parts to fix it. Great vehicles, but this one is just a PITA.
