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.

2005 Corvette, 1. the door did not unlock door unlocked partially despite holding the fob in hand and pressing on the "door handle pad" problem is worse in winter. It happened on several occasions. 2. interior light won't turn off. It stays on even when I press the on/off button.

For the second time in three months, my 2005 Chevy Corvette decided to lock me out again on its own. The "smart key" system, which is suppose to lock the doors when the keys are out of the car and unlocks when the keys are in the car. Well it freaks out when there are two keys in there. Whenever there are two keys in the car, the system flips and locks the person out. This is the same exact problem as I had last time. My keys are in plain view of my window, yet I still cant get in because the doors wont unlock. Is there anyway to get Chevy to fix this problem. Now I have to find a way to get in my car.
