i first took it to mcglaughlin chev in whitman, they reset it and told me that if it came on again they would have to clean the disc in the computer , whatever that means , 2 weeks later light is on again ,i notice im leaking power steering fluid from the cap, i open it and fluid puked out like it was under pressure, i get in start it and put it in gear , no power steering and no brakes ,called clay chevy in norwood and tell'em im sending it up on a ramp truck, i get the damn thing on the ramp truck and like magic the brakes and steering come back, they kept it almost 2 weeks and couldnt get it to do the same thing they clear the light and tell me that the problem with the brakes and the power steering is because of the aftermarket tires and rims i put on!!!! they tell me everything else is all set . so iget in the truck and go ,lights back on in 2 weeks. i went to the truck last night to get something ,i open the door and no courtesy lights!!!! no wonder gm needs a bailout !! the truck has about 25k on it .

General GMC in Methuen are great! All they do are HD trucks and duramax's. Great people to deal with. Also all parts are offered at cost if you pay cash.

Hope this helps,
Dylan
