I posted this before, but....... the ABS and the brake light come on and stay on when I start my truck. After I drive it for a while, stop and shut it off, it may or maynot shut off. Any thoughts on my problem guys?

Year, Make, and Model.

If it comes on right after you start the vehicle and it stays on something has failed the start check which the system does everytime the vehicle is started.

The fastest/easiest way to start is to find out what code(s) are in the system.

It's a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 ent. cab with the 2nd biggest v8 in it. It usually goes off after it's driven and shut off then restarted. Plan on taking it to Itasca-Kooch border deer hunting on the opener in 10 days, then an hour north of the Range the 2nd week of deer camp to hunt with my Range buddies, any safety concerns with this problem?

The Brakes should function normally whether or not the ABS is functional. the only down fall is if the ABS is needed in an emergency it will not function as intended.

What part of the range are you heading to?

Thanks for the info, emailed last year, from MI, (pre consolidation) meeting up with 2 high school buddies that still live on the Range, they have a hunting cabin and some land in the Greaney area north of Cook. We only seem to get together once a year now. so the hunting is secondary, stories get more exagerrated each year!!!!

Thats right. Post consolidated MIB grad here! My dads side of the family is from cook so we get up there quite often. Sounds like a good excuse to head over to the Dam for prime rib Fridays!!!!

You're on the mark about the Dam. The buddies like to cook at their shack but I drag them to the Dam one night and pick up the tab for letting myself and a friend stay and hunt with them. Hope my truck will get us there, at least the 300 mile trip will be a little more affordable with $2 gas instead of $4 gas, might be able to afford a better brand of beer for the week end!!!!!!!

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
