2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Question: Emergency Brake light and ABS light on dash

On my pickup when I push the throttle to around 3,000 RPM's, mainly on hills, the e-brake light and abs light will come on. However the lights will turn off when I turn the engine off and back on again. I also just replaced the batteries in the truck because I found the OEM batteries were running at 330 cold cranks. unfortunately the problem still persists. I've had the brake sensors checked and they were fine. The dealer does not know what the problem could be. The dianostic does not show any record of the lights turning on.

    I am surprised the dealer can't figure it out or query Chevrolet USA for an answer. There is a professional service called Identafix. http://www.identifix.com/info/about_us.htm They only deal with professional repair shops. They are in the Minnesota 651-633-8007. Your auto repair shop do all their diagnosis tests, and discuss your problem with a team of professional technicians great service cheap and very bright people.If the repair shop that are repairing your car are stumped this is a great service. This company only deal with automotive repair shops and don't answer questions for the general public but are an amazing knowledge base.
