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.

Impala LS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,400 miles


Not only dash lights, radio lights, my running lights go out as well. It only happens at night so I don't drive at night it is a major pain in the @&? I read in the manual about a sensor in the dash but doesn't say where???

Impala LS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles

At night, when the headlights automatically switch on, the dash panel and radio lights turn off. You can just barely make out the odometer and the radio station, but any lights to be able to see the speed, etc. are out completely. Any ideas?
