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 #3

May 152005

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The contact stated the turn signals and hazard lights worked intermittently. The dealership was contacted. They were aware of other Chevrolet vehicles which had a problem with the wiring switch in the steering column. However, there were no recalls. No repairs have been made, and the problem was progressively getting worse.

Over the past couple of months we have noticed that the turn signals on our 2001 Monte Carlo have started failing. They will be fine sometimes, and then out of the blue they will stop working. This problem sometimes lasts for just a few minutes, and recently we have gone for days without them working. After calling several dealerships and local mechanics we have learned that they have fixed alot of this problems, and are getting complaints about these turn signals. One gentleman told us it could be the hazard switch, but probably is the turn signal. This truly is a safety concern of ours considering we are never sure when we hit the signal if it is going to come on, or fail us again.
