2004 Gmc SIERRA 2500 HD Service Brakes, Hydraulic Antilock Wheel Speed Sensor Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID671935
 Internal NHTSA #10225210
 ModelSIERRA 2500 HD
 Model Year2004
 File date01/02/07
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemWhen slowing using the brake system, the vehicle actually loses braking effectiveness for a short time (less than 1 second) just before the vehicle actually stops- at about 3 to 5 mph. The is then a pulsing feel in the brake pedal and the vehicle then stops. The point is that there is actually a momentary loss of braking effectiveness in the last few moments of a normal stop. Fortunately, them, only "low speeds" are involved; unfortunately, this is very unsettling when stopping at a busy intersection or in congested traffic. It leaves one wondering if/when the brake function will actually fail altogether. I had the problem investigated by my dealer and was told that it involved the anti lock sensors which may be fixed by cleaning. If that wouldn't fix the problem, the sensors would have to be replaced. Costs: cleaning $160; replacement: $1250. Cleaning did not correct the problem.
