ABS and TCS Dash Lights
I have the dreaded C1214 H C error code on the TCS in the DIC.
I think I have read all previous post regarding this code and believe I have tried all remedies EXCEPT to replace the failed unit.
I have 2 questions; 1. How do you remove the electrical connection at the front of the unit? It has a gray handle that you can pull up that appears to release the connection, but I can't seem to get it completely free and move it out of the way.
2. Is there a way to make the dash lights go off while the system has an error or while it is being replaced.
Pulling the 40A fuse doesn't make them go away. I don't mind driving without the systems working properly, but I can't stand to see lights on the dash.
This is on a 2001 coupe with ABS, TCS, and Adjustable Ride (FX51 or 52 I think).
Sometimes all we need to do with our C5's is to clean the electrical connections first before throwing money at new parts. My GM service manual normally suggests to always first clean connections, then proceed with the troubleshooting chart. Also cleaning grounding points is a must for all C5's now that our cars are aging. Worked for me!

Yep, I have to agree with you that there are other things that can be done to perhaps fix the problem. I tried cleaning the grounding points too which didn't work. After reading "woodpuppy's" post it appeared he was at the point of removing the EBCM. That's why I sent the removal instructions from absfixer. absfixer repairs your original part and it cost me $150. A new unit from my Chevy dealer would have cost over $1,000 Have a good day!
