Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Car keeps stalling out (at light, while driving, etc) with the cause apparently attributed to a faulty ignition switch. I had the ignition switch replaced (for a charge of $496) at midway Cadillac in pokomoke md (after having car towed there on Feb 14, 2014, because at that time, had difficulty even getting the key in the ignition switch). The problem I was having with it stalling out persists, even after the new ignition switch. Writing because the ignition-switch-related problems I am having appear to be the same or similar to other GM cars which are currently being recalled due to ignition switch problems. Please include the Cadillac Deville 2001 into your investigation regarding faulty ignition switches of GM-made cars.

The contact owns a 2001 Cadillac Deville. The contact stated that while driving 60 mph, the vehicle accelerated independently.

He then shut off the vehicle and once restarted, the vehicle was reset. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but the dealer advised that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure mileage was 42,900 and the current mileage was 43,200. The VIN was not available.

: the contact stated while traveling 55 mph, the vehicle began to accelerate and would not stop. The contact continued to attempt to apply brake pressure. The transmission was put in neutral then into park and the vehicle stopped. The vehicle was towed to the dealership who determined that idle air control module was sticking in the high position. Also, the force in which the vehicle was put into park caused the motor mounts to fracture. The idle air control module and motor mounts were replaced.
