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.

2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

Since purchase of car with 34,000 miles in March of 2002, there have been several problems. Check engine light came on around 50,000 miles, had it checked was given the code for temperature sensor. Had sensor changed, within six months light came on again. When checked was given same code for temperature sensor so I had it replaced a second time. Now periodically while driving the temperature gauge will drop completely and when turning off the ignition the fan will continue to run. The only way to stop the fan is to either unplug the fan or unhook the battery. Randomly when trying to start the car it will not start as if the battery is dead, but the radio and all lights still work. Had this checked but no problems could be found. After waiting for about ten minutes the car will start. The only explanation I was given was that maybe the computer system thinks I am attempting to steal my own car. Then there are the turn signals, when you turn on the signal it will work for a few seconds then stop. The only way I have found to make them work again is to turn on the hazard flashers for a few seconds then turn on the signal again. There have been so many problems with this vehicle and with no warranty left it is rather costly and frustrating.
