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.

1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 122008

Monte Carlo 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


So, the switch in the steering column went out. The bottom two lights did not light up when braking. I fixed it myself. The part was about $120, the part is the shape of a ring with a bunch of wires sticking out one side, in case you're wondering. To get it fixed most shops said between $304-$350. It's worth-while to fix yourself, but will take some time.

It'd be good to have on hand before you start: Allen wrenches, metric. A ring puller. gear pull. A fillips for screws under the wheel. A flat-head to pry the plastic clips for the electrical parts. A crane. Since you'll be upside down under your steering wheel for some time.
