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.

My car is subject to a recall for the low beam headlamps, and Chevy (the manufacturer) will not fix it. The dealer says they can fix it by replacing the fuse box, but Chevy will not authorize it. I have been without my car for over a month. The dealer gave me loaner car, and I do appreciate that. However, I would like to get my car back. I am getting absolutely nowhere with Chevy, the manufacturer. I have no complaints with respect to the dealer.

My low beam headlights (left/right) have intermittent outages after the car warms up. The low beams fail without warning leaving it difficult to see the vehicle and operate the vehicle during evening, dusk and night driving.

Multiple fine cracks in both head light assemblies. They are not only unsightly but appears to distort/reflect head lighting. In checking my with local Chevrolet dealership, other Corvettes owners have the same problem. This appears to be a design defect.

The low beam headlights initially work when the vehicle is started. They will operate both automatically and manually when selected. After driving the car for 15 - 20 minutes the low beams go out. They will not come on in either the auto or manual modes. The high beams, parking and fog lights all work. After the car sits for several hours the lights will come back on, but will go out without warning. I have had my car serviced for this problem 4 times. The ground was fixed one time, the next visit the control module and ambient light sensor was replaced, the following visit the control on the steering column was replaced. The low beams operated for short periods of time each time. When the lights go out, it is without warning and they will not come back on until the car has been sitting for several hours. I have investigated this issue and it appears to be a very common problem in several Corvette and General Motors forums.

While driving on the freeway, the low beam headlights on my 2007 Corvette went dark without warning. The instrument panel headlight indicator showed that they were still on. I switched to high beams and those lights were working. It seems the low beams work for awhile but stop working after the car warms up for about 20 minutes or so. Also if the low beams were working and the car is turned of for a short period of time the low beams may not work once the car is started again. This seems to be happening more frequently. Clearly this is a defect in the manufacture of the vehicle and a limited recall needs to be initiated for those cars that are experiencing this problem.

While driving, the low beam headlights suddenly went out. After further investigation, a known and documented problem regarding the fuse block under the hood was the culprit. There is a copper wire within the fuse block that loses connection due to the high heat that occurs in the fusebox circuitry but to date, GM has not issued a tsb or recall concerning this potentially dangerous issue.

We have had intermittent problems with low beams not coming on. We replaced the relay with a new one and it made no difference. All other lights work. Have had the problem diagnosed as a break in ground wire connection between the BCM and the fuse box. Several fuses in the box are discolored from excessive heat in the fuse box.

Low beam headlights on 2007 Corvette shut off without warning. Fog and high beams continue to work. It appears the low beams work initially but then stop working after the engine heats up. This happens very often. Last time they stopped working on the highway at 65 mph.

While traveling to macon ga about 11 pm in the evening, the low beam lights just went out. I took the vehicle to the dealer the next day to figure out what was wrong. The dealer stated the fix would be nearly $1,400 to remove and replace the low beam headlights (required removal of the bumper). They never stated there were problems with the lights or the low beam system or in general, assumed any responsibility whatsoever. Very disappointed to date; sounds like not only a safety issue but one that will cost me to correct. The consumer stated GM acknowledged the root cause as a defective wire in the underhood bussed electrical center, yet no directive has been issued to recall the affected vehicles. Updated 01/08/14
