ABS light flashing, no cruise

Hello, i just bought a 1997 ccsb yesterday. It is more or less a project truck but i couldnt pass it up for the price. Anyways, i have a few issues. The abs light is constantly flashing, the cruise control doesnt work, and it has a flatbed and the two brake lights dont work. The blinkers work and running lights but no brake lights. Also while in OD if i turn on my right turn signal the truck drops out of overdrive. And when the truck is running it will not shift out of park, but when i turn the key back just one click it will move. IMO These issues all are related. I dont know where to start. It also came with an edge evolution and i used to to scan for codes and got a p0603. Any ideas?? Thanks for the help, Tucker

Not sure about the ABS or cruise control, but I had an issue with my old truck not shifting out of park. Mine turned out to be the brake light fuse, it's some sort of safety thing to keep you from driving without brake lights. Can't remember which fuse it is, but it'll say in the owner's manual.

It's not that. That would only work on automatic trucks. It's actually a safety thing to keep you from shifting out of Park without your foot on the brake pedal. BTSI - Brake Transmission Shift Interlock. Fairly recent safety interlock, not there in most '80s vehicles. Probably as a result of one or several lawsuits following incidents like what happened to my high school physics teacher (late '70s). Jumped in the car with the kids, started the engine, realized he'd forgotten something in the house, jumped out WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING , kid climbed over the seat (this was before the days of child seats, of course), pulled the shifter down into Drive, car drove itself up the driveway, THROUGH the garage door, finally lodged itself in the BACK wall of the garage.

In any event, yes, a blown brake light fuse would have the same effect as an inop brake pedal switch. All the more reason to check your brake lights once a week or so.

Yes also the truck won't shift put of park while running.I have to put it in neutral before I start it then shift to drive or reverse. And my brake lights and blinkers stopped working today too lol I'll check fuses

Hey I was close... I knew it was a safety thing. Ha Ha the good old days when things weren't idiot proof.

I've been stumped by fuses before, spent days chasing wires and tearing the engine apart only to realize a simple fuse had blown. Talk about feeling dumb...

Still having the issue of it not shifting out of park and the trans shifts pretty hard from 2-3. Speedo works, replaced the speed sensor. All fuses are good. ABS light flashed but the overdrive light does not flash at all. What can i check?

Do your brake lights still not work? The switch on the pedal is starting to emerge as a suspect.
