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.

Dash and instrument lights dim to where I can't see what speed I'm doing while driving at night. I can't manually adjust them with headlight knob when this problem occurs making for a very dangerous situation while driving at night.

The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that her ABS light and traction control light continuously illuminated. The vehicle speed and weather was not a factor. The contact also stated that the fuel gauge on her vehicle does not work and continuously fails to display the amount of fuel in the vehicle. The vehicle purchase date and engine size were unavailable. The current and failure mileages were 128,000.

My security light stays on on the message center. The dealer cannot find cause of problem (code). I can start the car so far with no problem. The light problem started after new battery was replaced in June 2006. I have found GM tsb 04-08-47-003, no thanks to GM' S customer relations. It states that BCM's may be needlessly replaced, when problem could be loose wire terminals or codes that have to be reset after changing the battery. I have read many instances of this occurring and think it requires a recall. Customers may be paying for replacement of the BCM, when it is not required. I have called this to the attention of GM customer service and they say that they can't help me! if you can get a copy of the bulletin, read it! it could save you several hundred dollars!
