This C code is what is designated as a Chassis code . The specifc code is a generic and means

C0281 - Brake Switch Circuit:

It indicates a problem with the brake lamp circuit. Inspect the switch and circuit.

Code C0281 is set if computer never sees the brake switch release after speeds above 15 mph during start-up.

Could be a sticky pedal or the calipers not releasing properly !

Hope that helps !

DTC C0267 or C0268 and C067 or C068 ( EBCM is the electronic brake control module )
The EBCM applies the ground needed for pump motor activation. The low side of the pump motor has a feedback circuit to the EBCM. When the pump motor is commanded OFF and at rest, feedback voltage is high. When the pump motor is winding down after being commanded ON and then OFF, feedback voltage is low. The EBCM monitors this feedback voltage in order to determine if the motor is functioning properly.
DTC C0281 or C081
The stop lamp switch signal informs the electronic brake control module (EBCM) when the brake pedal is pressed.

What does the cpu code C0281 in a 2002 chevy silverado 5.3l 4x4 auto trans means


It sounds like there has to be an issue with the pump/modulator or even the master cylinder. I would try bleeding all 4 wheels first to see if there is any air trapped. If not you need to have the abs pump checked next

The code is for a faulty shift solenoid. A good transmission shop can give a price to fix this.
If the transmission is shifting differently, you may want to consult a transmission repair shop. They will tell you how much.

C0281 code


the c0281 code on a gm truck is the abs ECBM has lost the voltage to it when the brake pedal is not depressed. so if you are going at a speed above 10-15MPH and the ECBM looses the 12 volts to it ,when the brake pedal is NOT depressed ,, then this code gets generated. the brake switch has a 12 volt feed to the abs switch contact connector. the other side of this switch goes to the other connector pin. these switches wear out get dirty with time. replacing the switch or if your up to it take the switch apart and clean the contacts with a fine abrasive material to remove the oxidation. if pitted or worn replace the switch. one wire is brown the other is purple. working the brake pedal watching the volts is easy way to see if the voltage is steady when you wiggle the brake pedal.. driving on a rough road with a bad switch usually gets it acting up.
