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.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 162011

Impala 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 152,000 miles


The window controls stopped working. Tore the master control out, discover it was not getting a ground connection. Ran a sheet metal screw into the inner door brace and soldered a ground wire into the harness and used a eyelet connector to attach it to the screw. It's an imperfect solution, as I am relying on the hinges for a ground, but works almost all the time. (Only stops intermittantly when you are opening and closing the door, but who rolls their window up or down with the door open?)
