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.

Owner of 2007 Corvette coupe. Vehicle headlights went completely out while driving on the freeway.the next day headlights worked until the car was warmed up then failed again. After reviewing online Corvette forum there were many many complaints of the problem which is attributed to the faulty wiring inside the fuse box under the hood. Had to replace the fuse box at a cost of $400. But this issue will likely re occur because the new fuse box will develop the same problem over time since it has not been redesigned.

I have had since the first occasion approximately one year ago, the lights would shut of or not turn on at all when the car would warm up. Once the car cools the lights will turn on, or the lights will shut off while driving when the car reaches a warmer temperature.

While driving approximately 45 mph at night, sudden loss of both low beam headlights without warning. Almost went off the road. I had to stop suddenly. Nearly missed getting rear ended in the process. This is not safe!

2007 Corvette lights will stop working without warning. This has happened more than 10 times. All the times except one were on familiar roads where I could stop. Once was as close to a disaster as possible. Someone will be killed if this GM issue is not resolved.

Low beams went off. After multiple visits to dealer, it was determined that the BCM needed to be replaced at a cost a several hundred dollars.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette. The contact stated that while driving 50 mph, the headlights failed. The failure recurred intermittently. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer or a repair shop for diagnostic testing. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure and current mileage was 114,000....updated 07-10-13

July 03, 2012 9pm - low beam headlights failed to turn on either automatically or manually by switch. For next several days/nights the low beams would intermittently turn on when the car was cold and turn off after the car was warm. Searching the internet identified the underhood fuse block as the most likely cause, many Corvette owners had experienced the same problem with the low beams and isolated their problem to this fuse block. I replaced my fuse block July 15 and the problem was fixed. I disassembled the removed fuse block with the intent of repairing it so I would have a spare fuse block if the new fuse block failed. After evaluating the design and construction of the fuse block I concluded that the fuse block will have poor long term reliability. I could repair the problem that caused the low beam headlight failure but any and every other circuit in the fuse block is vulnerable to the same failure cause. Every component/system that receives power thru this fuse block is vulnerable to eventually experiencing intermittent power problems.

Driving at night, 45 mph on smooth pavement. Low beam headlights went out, high beam remained functional. Since that time whenever driven low beams work until engine compartment warms up and do not work again until engine compartment cools down.

The low-beam headlights on the C6 base model Corvette 2005-2008 will stop working with out notice while driving at night. This is due to a known issue with the copper wire connections located within the fusebox. Due to defect and being close to engine bay, heat causes a break in the circuit wire that separates after the engine bay heats up (approx. 20 mins of driving) and without notice, your lights go out. Very very dangerous when driving on highways at speed.please issue a recall on the fusebox.

I was driving at night all the sudden my low beams stopped working at freeway. The lights went off without any warning sign or any error!!!! I tried to pull over but since I did not have light I could not navigate my way therefore I hit a flat tire which it was on the side of freeway!!I took the car to dealer and mechanic identified the issue from faulty wiring material from fuse box." Fuse box is to close to engine and that cause copper wires inside the fuse box to get disconnected from panel of fuses. This is a really huge issue with this car and I am not the only one who has this issue. Most of Corvettes with high mileage are having this issue.

The low beams randomly stop working, after the engine heats up to operating temperature, and almost caused an accident. The behavior then repeats every time the car is used (not a one-time event). I, and other owners have identified a common circuit issue in the headlamp controls, which is only fixable by replacing the whole board.

This problem started soon after I purchased the car used. I have replaced the brake switch and added four inches of wire to the wiring harness to the telescopic steering wheel. I recently replaced the brake pads and the service handling system soon comes on. There is no recalls on my car and have been to the dealer about the problem and they can't figure it out. I am reading this could be a serious problem and can cause an accident. I have been to the Corvette forum and tried numerous things to fix this. I am currently checking electrical grounds to see if that helps.

Both hid low beam lights turn off simultaneously while driving at night. Could not reactivate by turning switch off and on. All other lights functioned so I managed to use fog lights to continue the rest of the way home. Tested the low beams next morning, no issue. Tried them later in the day and they would not work. No accident, no wet weather and battery is only a couple months old. Heading to dealership to get resolved.

  • 1,500 miles
In May 2009 I made a road trip from my home in NY to tampa fl, when I left NY my 2007 ZO6 corvette had 1500 miles during the trip I was not involved in any accidents, when I arrived in fl the next day (drove straight through) I noticed that both front headlamp lenses had numerous tiny cracks in them, I called a local GM dealer, I explained the situation, they stated " I must have hit something" I was livid I then called my dealer in NY they said not to worry and would look at the vehicle when I returned. I arrived home on a Saturday night 1st thing Monday I called beck Chevrolet and spoke to the service manager, he said bring it over, I drove car over immediately, only the service manager looked at car, no 1 else saw my vehicle the service manager stated there was no chemical on my headlights, he said there was a bulletin from GM and they could do nothing, it was a mysterious chemical that caused this problem, I then called GM and asked for a review, when I called GM back several days later they said they spoke to a mechanic @ beck Chevy who stated " that he inspected my car and there was a chemical on my head lights, this is no way true I was present during the entire time 20 min car was @ dealer and only the service manager looked at vehicle. I then called GM again and wrote a few letter explaining what happen, they said chemicals used by auto detailers causes headlights to crack, I brought up the point that beck Chevy had an outside person detailing my vehicle when I picked it up, but they couldn't tell me why and what chemicals he used ( I personally saw this person detail my vehicle), I gotten no other response from GM. I believe that the lenses cracked because of heat from the long drive to fl from NY with the daytimerunning lights and have the lights on throughout the night, lights were on for approximately 20 hours straight. On the way home I turned the daytime lights off but turned them on at night, as of today my corvette ( baby ) has 4,013 miles.
