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.

As I left the grocery store I started to head home when the 11 Corvette gs sent a message to the dic on the instrument cluster, it said to service active handling, the problem is it locks up the front brakes, while this may not sound too serious at low speeds, imagine pulling out into traffic and the brakes lock up on your car. It occurs pulling onto grass or loose gravel also, especially in turns. I have to turn the car off and restart it for it to move again. My wife started reading the hundreds of complaints on service the active handling on the Corvette forums and what it has done to the vehicles from people that had issues with there vehicles when the service active handling message appeared on there (dic) digital information center that she no longer rides in the car with me. This vehicle has seen more dealer service than any other vehicle that I have owned.

Corvette 8-cyl

Car is a 2011 Corvette grand sport coupe. Intermittent display of "max speed 80 mph, service active handling, service traction system and the security light for the antitheft system stays on. When you turn the car off and restart 1-2 times, codes clear and operation returns to normal. Took car back to dealer three times. Last time (28000 miles) they kept car overnight and drove over 100 miles before they finally reproduced the problem. On 6/12/12 they replaced the ebcm and invoice description said "28216 checked and found codes P2548 and P0856. Performed diagnostic for codes and found intermittent loss of data from ebcm to ECM. Replaced ebcm and reprogrammed module. Code #28841. Rechecked after repairs ok at this time". problem recurred last week on 8/26/12 at 33000 miles. Will take back to dealer this week.
