 I heard a thumping noise from what felt like under my feet. i then tried to push on the brakes, only having the pedal give a great amount of resistance with loud abs noises. it will continue doing this until both my traction control light and abs light come on. i had my brakes checked and they said everything was good. and of course it was out of my 50000 mile warranty. i still drive cautiously and try to get the lights on as quickly as possible when driving my children around so that we aren't seriously injured. not until i started researching the problems i'm having with this particular vehicle did i realize i wasn't the only one. the brakes are the first to mention...then there's the ac/heater problem it won't blow hot air, and it won't blow cool air when stopped at a red light. then that loud clunking noise made when i'm driving over bumps that sound like my front end is going to fall off. oh and the fact that my speedometer will only increase by 3-5 mph increments. the dealer said they couldn't find anything wrong, after getting a speeding ticket by a camera light it was taken into a speed shop who verified its absolutely not working correctly. they couldn't even give me a reading because its broken. nice!!!!! seriously is someone going to have to die, or seriously injured before someone steps up and takes responsibility?

 I would press the brake and it felt like the anti-lock brake was engaged. after a few times, the abs light came on the dashboard. in october 2012, i took it to a chevrolet dealer to get it diagnosed and fixed. they replaced the left front abs sensor. then i went for almost a month without an incident and now it has started again. i took it back to the dealer, this last week of nov. 2012, and they told me that they will not replace the sensor because the abs light is not on, and that they are not just going to tear into everything because they are not sure what is wrong. i am worried about my safety of myself and those with whom i travel. *tr

 When driving my vehicle at speeds of 10-35mph my brakes lock up and make a loud grinding noise. the pedal pushes back at me and it is difficult to stop. it's almost as if the vehicle is trying to accelerate when i'm trying to stop it. the problem eventually fixes itself by turning off its abs system... the abs and tc lights come on and then i don't have another problem until i have turned off the vehicle and turned it back on again. it happens everytime i get in my car...and sometime does not correct itself until reaching higher speeds. i have had many occurrences when i was almost in an accident because of the inability to stop. i have contacted gm and my local dealer...it was diagnosed as an abs module that needs replacing. on their own gm forums there are hundreds of people with this same problem (among many others with this model)...i guess someone will have to die before they recall this. *tr

 My abs brakes were locking while driving and made it very difficult to stop car which required repeated stomping on brake pedal. dealer repaired front hub bearings and sensors to correct problem. dealer or gm does not consider this a safety issue even though this made it difficult to stop vehicle and also common problem with this vehicle. cost to repair was at owners expense.

 Just bought this vehicle, 1 day after owning it abs and no traction control light comes on and there's a rumble in the brake pedal. my husband is a mechanic, so he put new brakes and rotors on and cleaned wheel sensors. took it to sears and had new tires put on and wheel alignment and balance done. 2 days later i've got the same lights on and rumble in pedal. ran fine for those 2 days. i've read way to many complaints of the same problems and no solutions to be comfortable about purchasing this vehicle and now i'm stuck with it! when is chevy gonna wake up and take notice of this problem? they have recalls for reflector and console latches, but they don't find faulty brake systems important enough to address? why is it gonna take accidents or possibly deaths before someone does something about these faulty vehicles? i see post that say we need so many people to send in complaints or sign petitions to get something done...........really? why........can't chevy read forums and posts about the vehicles they are putting out there? or can't someone in charge of safety and wellbeing see how many hundreds of posts there are about this issue? my husband has always been a chevy man, i'm not sure i'm with him one this one! why would a company with such a great reputation chance throwing it down the crapper! come on chevy stand behind what you're selling and make it right!

 I took the vehicle to the shop to get it checked on 11-21-11. we took the vehicle thinking that a piston was bad, because that was the way it felt, like not getting the right pressure from the piston once the breaks were activated/pressed. once we got the call back from mechanic, he stated that we needed new rotors due to both being warped. i thought that that will take the problem away but once we got the truck back, immediately within days the problem came back. we took the vehicle back to the shop and they stated it was a tire the one causing the noise and rattle once the breaks were pressed. at the shop, they replaced the front break pads as well as the disc brake rotors, they applied lug nut torque 100, inflation 35/35, cleaned and adjusted rear breaks. after all of this was done, i still get engine lights on the dash board. i took the truck to get it tested at autozone for free and got this code on their machine oem number to cross: p0171 definition: fuel trim bank one condition explanation: the power train control module uses the oxygen sensor to calculate the air/fuel ratio of the engine. the computer has recognized a rich or lean condition on one bank only. probable cause: a1. if bank one and two set together suspect fuel pressure or maf (mass air flow) sensor a2. oxygen sensor defective. a3. ignition misfire-repair. a4. fuel injector problem. i have not used my truck for the past 2 and a half months for fear of having an accident if breaks fail to do their job or lock up while breaking. it is stressful enough if computers/mechanics nor dealers make up their mind about what the codes are or mean. i also notice the the button for the all wheel drive does not work anymore and that is being in that stage since the problem started. if anyone has a solution to this issue, please let me know. thank you.

 I own a 2006 chevy equinox that we had bought new, now the abs and tc lights come out and the brakes will grind and unless you pump the brakes it won't stop. i took the brakes to be changed twice in a year and no results so far. wife drives the vehicle and now recently has had more problems stopping and being close to crashing. i'm now looking to get rid off this vehicle asap. took it to dealers they had no idea what it was but did charge around 400.00 dollars each time for new brakes.

 On my 2006 chevrolet equinox, the abs and traction control (tc) warning lights on the dash are on, and the brakes intermittently and frequently will not work, especially at slow speeds. they pulse and the car does not slow, until the brakes pedal is pushed to the floor. the garage has replaced the front wheel bearings twice, the abs control module, the struts, and also rotated the tires, and the problem persists. the diagnostic tester indicates front left wheel bearing. i see on the internet that this s a widespread and persistent problem on the chevy equinox. we still haven't figured out how to fix it permanently.

 As the vehicle is approaching a stop sign or stop light while braking the vehicle will get down to about 5mph or less and then the anti lock brakes will engage. this first started happening in parking lots at low rates of speed and i first thought it was possibly ice on the ground but as it is warming up and the roads are clear the problem is more persistent. the vehicle should be stopping and there is no reason for the anti lock brakes system to be coming on. the vehicle should be finishing coming to a complete stop not starting to pump the brakes. *tr

 (1) on or about 10/27/06, alarm system deactivated itself, interior and exterior lights turned on, doors remained locked. (2) on 11/01/06, alarm system activated itself, doors locked themselves. (3) on 11/27/06, vehicle shuttered and went into 'limp' mode which may have caused damage to the transmission. onstar and dealer retrieved the following error codes: (i) p1626 - theft deterrent fuel enable signal lost, (ii) c0276 - traction control not allowed (tcm / abs), (iii) u0100 - lost communications with transmission control module (tcm), (iv) u2105 - lost communication with engine control module (ecm). between 11/27/06 and 12/21/06, dealer supposedly replaced bcm three times and 3rd new bcm fixed problem. each new bcm would go to zero (0) and the mileage could not be programmed. during that time the theft deterrent system was deactivated which was unknown to me. current mileage is incorrect. i believe that the original faulty bcm may have been re-installed and the codes cleared when they were unable to fix the problem. i do not believe that the other none-bcm error codes have been addressed but the dealer forced me to take my vehicle home on 12/21/06. *nm
