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.

The ABS control module has become non-functional. This eliminates the safety aspect of anti-lock braking, traction control, active handling, and anti-skid control. Chevrolet no longer supplies this critical element to my car's safety and performance. The digital information display center flashes that these safety elements need servicing, which is also a safety impairment because I cannot get any display of other functions of the car, I.e. mileage, fuel warning, options, and trip information. The part number is 10343433 (ABS control module). This is an ac/delco number and none are in stock anywhere is the United States. I was told by multiple dealers that none are available and General Motors will no longer supply this critical safety item again! this is a horrible support service on something so critical to the safety of a very expensive automobile. The response by General Motors is selfish and uncaring. If you type ABS control module for Corvette series C5 in google, you will find an unlimited resource of complaints. I believe this will be a series of accidents waiting to happen that will cause personal injury and death on our highways. Please investigate and take action.

The problem started as a highly intermittent warning that the ABS, traction control, and active handling suspension system needed to be serviced. It would usually go off by shutting the car off and restarting it. Couldn't locate the problem. This year when I took the car out it reset once and then stayed on. Diagnosed it, generated dtc error code C1214, indicating a bad power relay inside the ABS unit. The car now has just over 40,000 miles. To answer an obvious question, yes the problem did occur a few times while driving but it occurred primarily when starting the car. Searching the internet it seems that this is a common problem across a large range of GM vehicles using this specific ABS system made by delphi. It requires replacement F the ABS unit to repair.
