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 Blazer Owner Comments

problem #1

Blazer LS 4.2L

  • Automatic transmission

Well I was getting dropped off at work by the wife an threw the car in park, none of the doors unlocked which prompted my wife to ask honey did you just put the car in park because the doors didn't unlock. Sure enough looking at the dash the green square (that usually appears around the P indicating the car is in park) wasn't there. I got out the car and I could push it back and forth with it being in (park). A friend of mine belongs to a blazer forum and they found that it was a problem with an "actuator" which apparently is a $50 part. I haven't attempted to get this fixed yet, but for now we use the emergency brake to park and throw the car in neutral to start it.
