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 SS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles

Have a 2002 Monte SS. Security light was on for awhile intermittently, then door locks and trunk opener stopped working, radio says locked, voltage gauge read 0v. Found blown fuse for doors. ok. reset/ cleared codes with code scanner (no codes found). Good for a couple weeks. Now light is on again.

Car runs great and only has 40000mi.

Might try the spare set of keys and fob and see if that help...other ideas???

Monte Carlo SS 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles

Our 2002 Chevy Monte Carlo SS had a security light come on. Locks and trunk stopped working. It was a blown fuse. Drove it for a couple days with the security light coming on only once. I changed the fuse and the next day the security light comes on again and fuse blows again. I haven't changed fuse and when we start car car the security light is off. It will come on once in awhile. I noticed the other night it actually shuts all electrical inside/out off for a split second. I am now researching the internet to see if there is a solution.
