KNOCKING IN DASH AND BRAKES
2003 Isuzu Ascender • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 170,000 miles
I have a knocking in the dashboard that's gotten worse since the dealer fixed it when it was stuck in reverse, the ABS light is on and there is a vibration and downward motion of the break pedal without stopping. It's a 2003 Isuzu Ascender with 170k mi. Help!

Condition: Some customers may comment that the ABS light is on. Upon further
inspection, DTCs C0265 and C0201 may be set in the brake module. It is also possible
for DTC U1041 to set in other modules. There may also be a loss of communication
with the brake module.
Possible Cause: A poor connection at the EBCM Ground 304 is causing unnecessary
replacements of brake modules.
Correction: Perform the service procedure to improve the connection of the EBCM
1. Remove the EBCM Ground 304. The EBCM Ground is located on the frame
beneath the driver's side door. If multiple grounds are found in this location, the
EBCM ground can be identified as the heavy (12-gauge) wire.
2. Clean the area, front and back, using a Whiz Wheel (R).
3. Install the bolt, ground and a star washer to the frame.
4. Install a star washer and nut on the backside of the frame and tighten the nut to 9
N.m (79 lb in).
5. Cover the front and back side of the repair area using Rubberized Undercoating

NOTE: Do not replace the brake module.
I have the brake warning light ON on the dash, and the ABS light does not work at all, even when I switch to ignite. I also have noticed that the ABS is not working in hard braking.
