problem #4

S-10 Pickup 4-cyl

  • 156,000 miles


Our ABS light keeps coming on and when it does the ABS don't work. It comes on whenever it wants. It is the same issues as the 2000 are having and they have a recall. It recently caused the back wheel not to move at all. We were told the spring inside the module is going out. It also affects the air bag from going on. Also, the ignition won't work the truck won't start. It takes several tries to get it to start. We were just told that it's the starter. The seatbelt locks intermittently and won't let me move.

While traveling on I85 at 70 mph in the far left lane passing a car I hit the rumble strips on the shoulder and the truck lost all power. I was able to move to the shoulder on the right side of the road. Thinking I would not be able to restart the car to my surprise the car started back and I took off. I forgot about this until I recently heard of recent recalls.
