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.

2003 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 172007


  • 36,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Blazer. Everytime the contact opens the door of the vehicle, the interior lights consistently flicker on and off, especially in cold weather. As a consequence, the battery and alternator continue to fail and need replacing. The dealer stated that the failures were a normal characteristic of the vehicle and no remedy was available. Secondly, he noticed that the fuel gauges were inoperative. When the fuel gauge dial indicates that the fuel level is at half a tank, the fuel warning light illuminates. Thirdly, the contact had to replace the lower ball joints twice because they continued to fail. Lastly, while idling at a stop light, the engine abnormally hesitates, which causes the steering column to vibrate. He took the vehicle back to the dealer, but they could not duplicate the failure or remedy the failures. The manufacturer was unable to assist. The failure mileage was 36,000 and current mileage was 39,450.

Blazer 4WD

  • Automatic transmission

Vehicle stalled while driving, but will restart when key was turned in the ignition. Vehicle was serviced 5 times in which a diagnostic test was performed, no failure code found. Then, dealership removed the automatic starter system, and the vehicle only stalled once. A year later, the service engine light came on while driving. Dealership replaced the computer chip, but the light came back on.
