problem #2

I purchased 2004 GMC Canyon used from dealership. I took vehicle home and within a couple days the ABS light came on and would not turn off. I took vehicle back into the dealership and they looked at it and returned the vehicle to me. They said if it comes back on to let them know. Within a week while driving down the road the ABS light came back on and stayed on. Took vehicle back in and they looked at the brakes and found something on them. They removed the gunk as they said and said it was a recall and was no charge for me. I have not found anything about a recall due to the ABS staying on.
