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.

I was traveling 70mph on a 4 lane hwy. When suddenly my brakes locked up for a split second causing me to veer into the left lane. I was able to recover quickly, however it could have had serious consequences if another vehicle had been alongside me. The service active handling message appeared on my dash disengaging the active handling and apparently the traction control system. The message stayed on the remainder of the trip. The next day the message was gone apparently resetting itself. Because of the dangerous situation I took the car to the local chev. Dealership (len dudas motors, stevens point, wi) however they were not able to determine the cause. The sensors tested normal and the mechanic theorized the yaw rate sensor bracket was at fault, but he was unable to find a part. During the past week the problem resurfaced 2 more times. I've researched Corvette forums online and it appears that this is a problem with Corvettes and there appears to be many opinions on how to fix the problem, most of which I don't understand because I am not a mechanic. Also if my local Chevrolet mechanic cannot fix the problem what can I do. Right now I can't drive the vehicle for fear of causing an accident.

Electronic stability control, traction control system at different speeds my traction control warning light comes on for no reason, and the vehicle feels like its trying to engage the ABS system. It now comes on just abut everytime I get I drive my vehicle. I have since learned that this is happening to thousands of Corvettes at an alarming rate.

2004 Chevrolet Corvette. Consumer writes in regards to malfunction of cruise and traction controls. The consumer stated over the past two months the cruise control would shut off automatically. He would turn it back on and it would work for a very short time and then shut off again. In addition, while driving at a high speeds of 65-70, the consumer felt a slight slow down in the engine and a pull to the right in the steering. Once he turned off the traction control, the problem ceased.
