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.
Mine is currently doing the same thing. I mad a call to complaints to get a recall started. Too many people are having this issue and no one should be paying out of pocket for this safety issue.

My 2018 power wagon just started doing this at 25,000mi. I just made an appointment. I also have my backup camera giving a blue screen. Has there been a recall on the brakes yet? Last time I took it in for the camera they said they did a firmware update but is still happens.

My ram 2018 is doing the same thing. Dealer wants$200 to do diagnostic and then close to $1000.00 to fix. My truck is out of warranty . If this is a known issue that has happened to soo many vehicles. Why are they not recalling this or fixing it for free? This is one of many issues Ive fixed on the 2018 2500 diesel. This is my first & last Ram... soo disappointed in Dodge.

Is this still not a recall? I've got a 2018 3500 Bighorn having the same issue. Don't think it's right to have to spend $1500 - $2000 to fix a problem that Ram is aware of and that so many other trucks are having. Does Ramcare help at all?

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?
What fuse was it ?

Mark,

I've been researching the above error. I have a 2017 ram2500 that has begun flashing the error code 'service electronic braking system'. I noticed that you have showed up on the forum suggesting people contact you if they have this issue, so here I am.

The truck has 44k on it now. Prior to 3/36 I had brought it in for an issue where it was binding on low speed sharp parking lot turns. It was diagnosed as a stuck caliper and replaced, but I felt the dealer was just throwing a repair at it. Didn't seem to solve the problem, and at around 40k and no warrantee I actually purchased the other front caliper and replaced just to see, but nothing. Now I still have a binding feeling in parking lot turns, and suddenly the warning code I mentioned at the beginning. Is it possible the abs module is sticking a caliper and contributing all along??

Either way, what is the best course to correct the abs code thru the dealer? Is this a recall/safety issue?

Thank you,

Bob

Exact same problem. 2018 Ram 2500 - 36000 miles - dealer says they've never heard of it before. I find that hard to believe. I started a 850 mile trip and this occurred about 300 times during the first 120 miles. Pulled off the interstate to gas up and when I got going again, the problem had disappeared.

I have a 2018 2500 diesel and the warning ABS/Traction control just started going off and on intermittently. Ram needs to address this! This is a sever safety issue and they need to post a recall. If my ABS is malfunctioning and causes me to have an accident that is on FCA’s shoulders. It is a very well known problem, it’s on every forum out there that mentions a Ram truck! What more do they need? My last Ram for sure. Hopefully I won’t die in accident because of this know safety feature failure.

Hey Mark/Ram Cares,

I’m having the same issue with ABS and traction control dash lights going on and off and killing the cruise control.

Can you help?

New(er) 2018 2500, same RAM problem. Warning indicator constantly gave me issues in my older 1500. Now it’s a repeat in my 2500. ABS System warning popping up all the time. The annoying ding is bad enough alone. Throw in that it cancels the cruise control every single time & it makes that obsolete.

Warranty coverage is not a good enough resolution considering the ridiculous # of trucks this happens to, and, the inconvenience of taking it to a dealership for repair. Nearly all of my Ram driving friends have had these type electronic/computer failures. That said, I love everything else about RAM trucks.
