1989 - GMC Sierra 3500 4x4 has 2 issues: 1) dash brake light flashes with engine on, but repair shop says all brakes are functioning properly and pads and rotors are OK & safe to drive, but they don't know why the dash brake light flashes. 2) Truck starts fine and runs fine.

2004 GMC Envoy, My service engine soon light came on. I took the vehicle to a mechanic and the code came back po422. A smoke check was performed and they said it had a leak in the filler neck and the entire gas tank needed to be replaced. So the dealer replaced the tank and now I'm getting a loose gas cap message light on the dash. Since the dealer did not replace the cap when replacing the tank is that what the problem is, or was it not the gas tank issue at all?


Hello: Without being there when the smoke test was performed no one can say what the results of the smoke test were. I would go back to the dealer and speak to the service director/service manager and request a new gas cap. ... 2004 GMC Envoy

1997 GMC Safari SLT, anti-lock brake light comes and goes intermittently. I've replaced the master cylinder but the problem continues. Sometimes when stopped I can depress the brake pedal, the red brake light lights and goes out and then the anti-lock brake warning light goes out as well. How can I remedy this issue? There is no difference in braking performance. Do I need to clear the codes, or somehow re-set the metering pin?
