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.

Monte Carlo LS 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles

I don't have a complaint because i have not brought the car in yet. I just open the hood, unhook one of the battery cables and i am set for another day or two. It is not happening since it got warm. I am wondering if having the a/c on eliminates the problem.

Same issue as others have mentioned. Temp gauge stops working in cold weather and fan runs for about 30 minutes after shut down when gauge isn't working.

The weirdest part about the temp gauge not working is that when the temperature outside is above 60 degrees, it works. Below that (which in Ohio is quite ofter) the temp gauge stops working and the check engine lights comes on - pointing to a sensor (which I have replaced). But, with the gauge not working it is causing my fan to run constantly.
