hey guys, i know that this is for caddy's, but i cannot get chevy truck world up and i need help with this...so if you can, pls help.....07 chevy silverado 5.3 L, new body style...yesterday the battery light and the "service battery charging system" message came on...took to advance auto to have them test both the battery and alternator..neither was bad according to them...battery pulling 14 v, and alternator putting out 13.8 v.....i have also lost my braking system, takes several pumps to get brakes to operate....any ideas on the problem...would be much appreciated

Not an expert, but bad brakes and charging issue suggests a short in the brakes? Is there an ABS sensor having issues?

PULL YOUR CODES! :D Go back to Advance and use that to get your codes and report back.
