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.

problem #1

Mar 012011

Avalanche Z66 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

after driving[ no specific time] , the warning bell dings 33 times and the brake/asb light comes on. the brakes work fine. I think ther is a defective sensor because the warning comes on sooner [each time i start the vehicle] as related to the ambiant temputute....the hotter the weather, the sooner the alarm. on real cool days, it hardly happens. what could be the problem?

Update from Oct 16, 2013: the break problem was the abs system needed servicing, which fixed the a cost of $400.
