Tons of BRAKE fault codes
Hey all, quick question. I just dropped my daughter off and backing down the driveway (incline) my dash lit up like a Christmas tree. All the bells and whistles went off.
some of the dash warnings were along the lines of
-check brake fluid level
-check brake system
-advancetrac system fault
-hill decent fault
and others, all somehow brake related.
the parking brake light came on, as well as a few other lights
I dropped my daughter off, came back, started, and they all came on again, I saw no fluid, and wanted to see if it was just a code glitch, I pulled out of the driveway and as soon as I got to the top, they all shut down and dash went back to normal. I breathed a sigh of relief. No problems until I came to the next street light 5-10 miles away, as soon as I went to take off, all the bells and whistles went off again, but, then again as soon as I got 1/4 mile down the road they all shut off again, and did not see them the rest of the drive.
I would THINK if there was really a big issue with the parking system it would not turn off for that long, only to come back for 30 seconds and come back. I would HOPE a parking/brake issue would be a high alert non stop warning.
Any ideas as to what could be loose? or if that's the case at all?
I really don't want to drive if it is a threat, but it appears to be a faulty alert somewhere. I am not very mechanically inclined, although my truck looks it, I am the promo, photo/video guy, I know just enough to get me in trouble..
