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.

While driving my 2004 Corvette the active handling message come on at the dash and while driving this causes the brakes to pull the car from one side or the other suddenly and this happens very often. I am afraid this could cause the car to have a serious accident.
