Just happened yesterday for the second time. I start my truck and drive away only to look down and see the brake light on (the one on the dash). I touch the brakes and it is like the anti-lock feature is stuck on. Brakes grab, clicking noises like the anti-locks make, very dangerous. I stopped, checked the brake fluid, (normal) turned off the truck and re-started and it resets and everything is normal. Ideas? Ever happen to anyone else? In both cases I drove over washboard surface right after starting out. Could that have something to do with it? Stumped.....

The brakes have been perfect since the original fix. My guess is a computer or electronic glitch as it resets when I turn it off and re start. After that they work totally normal. The truck has 107,000 miles and has been perfect the whole time.

I assume you have ABS. I had something like this occur about three times. I took it to the dealer and they were not able to reproduce the problem. This past Thursday it happened again. I phoned the dealer from the vehicle and drove directly to the dealership. I never turned the vehicle off or put it in park. A supervisory technician took a ride with me. He recognized the problem. He said there was a TSB for this problem that involves reprogramming the ABS/VDC control unit. They followed the TSB. I'll have to wait and see how it works.

In my case the brake light was on. The brake pedal was very soft. There was a groaning sound from the master cylinder/ABS area as the brake pedal was pushed. The brake pedal didn't quite feel like the ABS was functioning. The sound wasn't quite the same as the ABS functioning either.

I believe the TSB number is NTB06-040.

Good Luck!
