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.

2001 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #3

Corvette 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 24,200 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Corvette. Two months ago, the ABS traction control system light illuminated on the instrument panel. The owner's manual stated that the light would illuminate intermittently, however, it should dim when the vehicle was shut off and restarted. Approximately one week ago, the contact noticed that the light remained illuminated. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that there was internal failure with the ABS and brake modules. They also stated that the ABS was not working. The manufacturer stated that they would not repair the vehicle for free because it was not under warranty. The current mileage was 24,277 and failure mileage was 24,200.

Electronic brake control module (ebcm) failure. Must replace module. There seems to be many people with my same problem. Go to and search "ebcm failure" and you will see the list of people with my same issue.

The ABS, traction control, and active handling indicators started coming on when starting vehicle. Vehicle is 2001 Chevrolet Corvette with 32,000 miles. I took the vehicle in for repair and was told it would cost $3,189 to replace a valve and a module (bpmv and ebcm). I though this was unusual for two parts to go out on a vehicle with such low miles. The technician told me that there had been other vehicles with the same problem. I feel that I should not have to pay the full price for the failure of a defective safety device on my vehicle, especially when it fails at 32,000 miles. Although I have only had to rely on ABS once since I purchased the vehicle new in 2001, I feel that it saved me from getting into an accident. Now, the feature doesn't work and GM has made it nearly cost prohibitive to get it fixed! when I had a defective seat belt on another GM vehicle, GM was forced to fix it for free. I feel the same should occur on any vehicles whose safety devices, such as ABS, fail at less than 100,000 miles.
