Last year I pulled into the parking lot and cleared the ABS codes then got it inspected. This year the codes would come back as soon as the engine was cranked. Turns out it was for nothing. Got it inspected anyway with the light on. I told the guy that it was the ABS module and that the brakes were mechanically fine. He said not a problem.
And then there is the issue of my wife complaining about the light always being on. It's good to give her something real to complain about sometimes.
If the EBCM is on and plugged in and the Brake light is on, and you have plenty of fluid AND the parking brake is off then that means more than likely the dynamic proportioning part of the brake system is not functioning.

The BCM is VIN locked and can be reset with the proper software at the dealer. The EBCM if I remember correctly is not VIN locked. I ended up buying a ABS/EBCM unit off ebay to put in a blazer and don't think I had to reset it. I can't remember the code number it had, but it had to deal with the ABS pump relay, which is internal to the EBCM. From what I had read usually when this occurs the EBCM will also short out the ABS pump in the process. $100 later and it was fixed. If I remember correctly it was roughly $800 for the EBCM and $800 for the ABS pump from the dealer, this was about 3 years ago.
