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

Nov 052007

(reported on)

C/K 3500 Cheyenne 6.5L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


Truck now has 132k miles. since about 79k it has had repeated problems with the passlock systm at times shutting the truck down while running, Pine Bluff dealer changed injector pump under "warranty" plus 125 service charge with security light flashing. GM dealer in Greenville miss changed injector pump under warranty made 60 miles and it died again. Security light on and flashing but dealership ignored this and fixed a "warranty" problem. Several burps and security lights later I am having to frequently "limp home mode" (10 minutes with key on) unless cranking heats starter and wiring and refuses to turn fast enough to start. New Ase certified mech is working on it. all components have been changed out three times this three month period and truck still remains in his shop unable to keep security system from disabling truck.
