Anyone have an idea what might be wrong on my Colorado? I just rotated the tires and then when I was pulling out of the drive the Brake symbol lit up and above my mileage it started flashing FLUID. I checked my brake fluid and it was full. Any ideas?

Check the ABS wire to make sure you didn't damage one when you pulled the front wheels. The cable is affixed to the UCA. It's a long shot but you may have grabbed it accidentally. Or bumped it, or who knows......

I don't believe that would display 'fluid' though...but it may have interrupted the communications to the wheel speed sensor.

That's a start anyway.

Check the connector to the fluid level switch on the brake master cylinder. It's also possible that the switch is bad. The part number is 18012741 and is available at the Dealer for about $18. RockAuto has them for $8.51 + shipping. Amazon's price is $12.37. The switch can be changed without losing fluid from the reservoir. You will need a tool to remove the retaining clip. The Service Manual recommends bent tip needle nose pliers.
