Topic: Brake Warning Light/Chime in Kodiak C5500

Posted By: lms20fan on 01/31/10 03:47pm

Has anyone taken their coach to Chevy to get the Brake Warning light/annoying chime fixed and Chevy told you it needed a hydro booster pump motor for $500? I read on here that it could be a brake light switch...no mention of that from chevy. I have a 2005 Endura. The brake warning light and chimes go off intermittently. Thanks!

Took mine it, was not told that it needed anything other than a switch replaced. Parts and labor were around $110. I am sure I could of replaced the switch myself and saved a few bucks.
Mine is a 2005, on a 2004 Chassis.
Good luck.

I had this problem on my 2007 Jayco.It is a $20.00 part that you can replace yourself.The brake switch is located at the top of your brake and is a plug-in type--you should be able to replace.Napa should have the switch in stock --if not then chev. dealer will hacve it. I hope this helps.

When I had the problem with mine, it was the brake light switch. Here are details of my experience...

Same problem as others...Brake light switch fixed the chime noise and light.

If you have a electric brake controller hooked to the brake pedal switch you probably need to replace the brake switch. Part # 25771554. You can order one from GM Parts Direct.
I found my Chime problem was the connector under Hydro Boost was not making good connection. Cleaned connector and Chime went away.
If it is the Brake Switch and it is hooked to a brake controller. You need to read this bulletin. Bulletin #66.

I had the brake switch problem. My alarm would not go away by simply restarting the engine. You had to put it in gear and drive. It would reset within the first 100 feet or so of driving. I think that is when the ABS does a system check and resets the alarms if it finds nothing wrong.

If I turn off the engine and restart it it goes away till I come to another stop, funny thing is it does not happen at all stops.
I will try replacing the brake switch. hope that works.

That's how mine started.

You're on thr right track if you replace the brake light switch. I had the same problem and the switch was the culprit.

Thanks all - I decided to forgo chevy replacing the hydro boost motor for $500 and rely on the brake switch (they had to replace that due to no brake lights - again no mention from them that the switch had anything to do with the chiming) and the warning light/chime did not go off on the ride home from chevy. Let's hope that was it!

Read the thread at link below.

I took apart the brake switch way back then and cleaned a couple of times. After the last cleaning as mentioned in the post have not had a problem with it over 2 years later now.

Apparently the contacts were not rated high enough to handle the amperage of the circuit. Thats why there is a new part no.It is more heavy duty switch.

If you have a brake controller. Make sure it is wire per the instructions posted earlier in this thread.
