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

Oct 012016

Avalanche 1500 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 154,000 miles


We bought the Avalanche in May and I am beginning to really despise it. The electrical system if not doing it's thing. I work late some nights and as I drove home, suddenly my headlights went out. The next day my husband discovered that if you have the steering wheel way up high (I am short and this does not work) and you hold it in place the lights may work. The high beams and cargo lights work fine. I now have a very nice truck I only drive in the daylight hours.

problem #1

Feb 222016

Avalanche 2500 8.1L Litre

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,500 miles

The lights fail to come on right away, eventually they come on. Then they go out again. It doesn't matter if they are on low or high beam. The tail & marker lights are always on. The fog lights also work properly. Can someone tell me what the problem is? Thank you.
