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.

2004 Cadillac Escalade Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 222009

Escalade EXT 6.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,000 miles


This has happened 7 times in 18 months, always when it's an emergency - late for work, school, etc. Truck tries to start, then passlock light comes on - engine dies. Will turn over but not fire - security system issue. Remove key open and reclose door, wait 10 to fifteen minutes & maybe will start. This morning (03/16/2010) had to go through sequence twice before truck would start. Hopefully this will never happen in the middle of nowhere when I need to make an emergency run to the ER with one of my kids. If anybody has any ideas - please email me. I can't afford $$$$.$$ for a dealer right now. Thanks
