2001 GMC Yukon XL 1500 175,000 mi,
ABS pump runs after engine is cut off. Battery runs down overnight. I was disconnecting the battery, but then just pulled the fuse.
2002 GMC Yukon XL 1500 88,500 mi,
ABS light comes on and stays on. When you turn off vehicle, there is something still running (ABS Pump); his has occurred three times on my same 2002 GMC Yukon XL (2wd). First time was at 88,500 miles (Dec-2007); 2nd time was 124,498 miles (Jun-2010); and now a third time 160,000 miles (Sep-2014). Something is not right for this to keep re-occurring.
