lost ability to stop the truck. had to step on the brakes and hold the wheel just to make a hard turn. at that moment i had to put it in park to lock the breaks up while the Trottle systems was still stuck and shut the truck off. so i assume i need to look into the GM stabilitrac area just to see if that was the issue, it was like a movie.
