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.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 312008

Avalanche V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles


Was told I need a new "cluster", part not in stock, ordered and replaced then trip odometer would not work. New cluster ordered and replaced, trip odometer would not work. Made another appt, dealership decided they just needed to "reprogram" cluster. Now, when I take my key out the message center displays a red battery and the odometer stay on with no keys in the vehicle. Now, they said that this would not have anything to do with replacing cluster... ADVICE?
