2005 RELAY-3
Dizzy Relay 3 brake problems

I took my Relay in for the brake vibration problems and it was warped rotors. My dealer trued the rotors under warranty and everything seemed fine until about a week later. I began to get a very intermitant problem during the final bit of braking. I would occasionally get a "crunchy, grinding" sensation and sound. After about 3 of these events I took it back. They service tech said it was probably the pads not having been seated properly and they would take care of it. I got it back and it was good for about 3 weeks. Now it's doing it again. Also my "service traction control" and " service ABS system" lights have been coming on and then disappearing. OnStar could not get anything on a diagnostic. It's at the dealer today. They say the service indicators is due to a faulty "ECB module"? (I'm not sure I remember that right.) Unfortunately they can not duplicate the brake crunch, so I'll probably have to wait until the first complete brake job to get rid of it.

Default Re: Relay 3 brake problems

We had the same warning lights going on and off, and ours had a wire and harness that had to be moved. It was rubbing up against something causing the problem. There is a TSB for that too, so if what they do to yours now doesn't work, you may want to tell them that. Good luck with the grinding. I know all the Relay issues are frustrating, but we still like the van a lot.

Default Re: Relay 3 brake problems

I had the brake problem with that module you talked about. Whenever my ABS would engage or the TC everything shut down and warnings came on but after restarting the car it was like nothing happened. So one day it happened and I went straight to the dealer and refused to turn it off until they saw it.

Also my car shakes sometimes when I brake...I was wondering if that was okay...now I'm concerned.

Shaking is usually a sign of warped rotors.

It's been the bane of GM cars for MANY years now.

Our Relays rotors lasted 11'000kms. I trip through the mountains and they were done!

My wife's VUE has had the shaking for several months now. Although lately it seems to have gotten worse.

It's at 72,000 km.
