I finally got an appointment with my dealer to let them try and solve this intermittent problem. The EVIC display showed Service Antilock Braking System and alternated to Service Electronic Brake System. It would constantly bing and display the ABS light and the Traction Control light. I made an appointment with our local Ram dealer for 7am and when I dropped it off gave them the following “Love Note”.


2017 Ram Display Brake Error = Service Electronic Braking System and Service Antilock Braking System

See the 3 minute video at

I also showed the service rep the vid on my phone.

The video was made on I-45 just north of the Woodlands, Texas.

It seems to happen more often on rough road but had the error on smooth part of highway.

When it happens, the Cruise Control shuts down and the truck icon in the Navigation stops moving on the map.


When they called me to pick the truck up, below was on the print out……

Cause: has code c0020-01, hcu is short to ground on motor and took out abs module

Replaced: 68437098AB Module Anti Lock Brake System

Replaced: 68143491AA Control Anti Lock Brake System

Replaced hcu and abs module, test drove and everything is working properly

They also noted that they did the Recall V44 Tailgate Latch


When I drove the 3500 home the 20+ miles (4 miles on rough road), the problem did not reoccur.I guess we'll see.....

After a few days, it all seems well. I'll have to say that I've never had a bad experience at any dealer and this one was very well handled.

I just ran across this post. My truck is doing the EXACT SAME THING. Intermittent ping and EBS / ABS Service lights. Taking to dealership tomorrow. 2018 Ram 2500 with 13K miles.

Has your problem been resolved since your original post?

Thanks!

Has anyone replaced these parts on their own? My 2017 3500 is just barely outside of warranty so they won’t cover it. The dealership wanted over $800 to fix it, but I could get the parts for around $300.

I got everything installed, but now it’s saying service ABS, rear air suspension, trailer brake system, and electronic brake system. It also shows no speed on the speedometer. Does it need to be flashed of something?

My 2018 2500 Dodge diesel truck has started to show the same error messages. After reading the above comments I called my Dealer about it, they said that they would call me back, but have not. How do I find someone to work on it?

I had the same issue 15 months ago on my 2017 2500. The on/off sound get's quite annoying. I removed the fuse and took it in to get repaired. Dealer replaced hcu and abs module. Here I am 15 months later and THE_SAME_ISSUE started up again this week!! By reading other forums seems this is a common issue. I wonder if there's a class action about this. Has anyone replaced this themselves?

Just too update - the dealership let me know they were replacing the ABS module, it was there for 3 weeks. Kept getting the runaround that they were waiting for the ABS module, only to find out all they did was replace the HCU, and the notes were opposite of what they said. Avoid Crown of Chattanooga like the plague. Misrepresentation. See what/if FCA or the dealership do.

2017 RAM 2500 with 10,002 miles. Exact same issue. You don't have to duplicate it or the ABS light to stay on, the error code is stored and can be found by run a FULL diagnostic check, not just a check engine read. I ran the diagnostic on my handy BlueDriver reader and at showed code C0020 ABS Pump Motor Control: General Electrical Failure. Took it to the dealer and they replaced 68143491AA Control -Anti Lock Brakes (HCU) Should have replaced it myself, but was a little worried about the brake bleeding process through the unit - could find nothing online about the replacement to guide me. So - 23 days out of warranty I got the privilege of paying $802 to our local RAM dealer to replace. Come on RAM - its a bad solder on a circuit board or something common. This is not a wear and tear item. Should be covering this item no charge.

I have a 2014 mega cab 3500 with the same Electronic Braking System and Service Antilock Braking System problem. I am as puzzled as everyone with this code, read so much on it that you think i would be an expert by no. Well, i had a friend tell me that its a dirty ABS sensor issue. So, i took a pressure washer and cleaned around my brake calipers, and sensor, let dry overnight and road tested it the next day. Drove 43 miles to work and back with no issues, i am on my third day and still nothing. it may be dumb luck but i went from having this error codes everyday to nothing now. Guys, its worth a try!
