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 #2

Nov 152009

Blazer ZR2 4.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


I took my vehicle in to have routine maint and a/c fixed. After several days, several calls from the shop with "other" problems and several hundred dollars more than quoted I agreed. Got everything but the brakes done (too expensive). brought the car home n did the brakes myself. Simple job. But since I brought it home, the ABS light keeps going on and off and then the brakes started making a grinding noise and shudder/grabbing and pulls to the left when I am slowing down to a stop. I think they did something to the ABS system to make me come back and spend more money - cause they were fine before that - just normal wear. When it happens... the voltage gauge drops by half and returns to normal once I am stopped. I have found that if I gently pump the brakes before I start to slow down it doesn't happen. But that is not a solution !

This is very dangerous as sometimes the brakes just get rock hard and it is very hard to stop !!!!! I am reserved to take it somewhere as they always rake you over the coals for a 30 minute $10 job !! I know alot about cars and have good common sense but I am stumped on this one.

Blazer LS 6 C

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,000 miles

Right front wheel bearing was making a noise. Garage said it needed to be replaced so I had the work done. When I went to pick up the car, the ABS light was on. Asked garage about it and was told that now the left front wheel bearing needed to be replaced. Had that work done. ABS light now goes off and on. Antilock braking system does not work at all. Sometimes when I go to stop at a low speed (25-30 MPH) the brake has a grinding feel to it and pulls the car to the left and I have to hit the brake hard to the floor in order to stop the car. I don't know what else to do now. Regular brakes checked out ok.
