ABS light on GM vehicles

Why is my ABS light on GM vehicles

GM has issued a TSB #04-05-025-002A covering the following vehicles:
2004 Buick Rainier
2002-04 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade EXT
2003-04 Chevrolet Silverado
2000-04 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe
2003-04 Chevrolet Avalanche, Trailblazer
2003-04 Chevrolet SSR
1999-04 GMC Sierra
2000-04 GMC Yukon, Yukon Denali, Yukon XL
2002-04 GMC Envoy
2004 GMC Envoy XUV
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada

The problem shows up as a glowing ABS light and trouble coded C0265, C0201, U1041 and a loss of communication with the brake module (EBCM). The TSB warns dealers NOT to replace the EBCM. The problem is a bad ground. Refer to a wiring diagram to find the grounding location for your vehicle. Then clean the ground area and spray it with rubberized undercoating.

For midsized utility vehicles, find the location of ground #304
For Chevrolet SSR, find the location for ground #400
For full-size trucks and utilities, find the location for ground #110
