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.

The contact owns a 2002 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that when he would turn off the vehicle, it failed to restart. Initially, the failure was intermittent, but it now occurs everytime the vehicle is driven. The security system would lock up the injectors and he would have to turn the key on for 10-15 minutes to reprogram the module. Afterwards, the vehicle would restart. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that the security system was the cause of the failure. The contact paid approximately $700 for the repair, but it did not remedy the failure. The manufacturer has not been notified. The current mileage was approximately 150,000 and failure mileage was approximately 124,000.
