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

problem #1

Aug 272015

Monte Carlo SS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,002 miles


This car bought new only 35,000 miles to date. This is the 2nd time the amp in the trunk has gone bad and drained the battery overnight. The first time was around 25,000 miles and was confirmed by an automotive electrical shop. It seems the amp does not shut off after the car is parked and drain the battery. The first time I sent the amp out to be refurbished. This time I purchased a new Delco amp from amazon. This part is plug and play. It took me 10 minutes to change it. The part was $225.00. The dealer coast would be close to $400.00. Hopefully this amp will last.
