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.

2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 252012

Monte Carlo SS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,000 miles


On warm days, headlights, taillights, dome light, parking/direction signal lights, and dash diplays and warning lights, all flash; warning bells ring. When the ignition key is turned off and removed, the above conditions continue until the battery is disconnected. Once the battery is re-connected, all systems appear to be operating properly.

When the vehicle is attached to the computer, no abnormal readings are shown, even while the lights are flashing and bells are ringing. The issues cannot be duplicated while at the dealership or any other repair facility, unless I take it in when the issues are occurring, and they still can't figure it out.

What is the solution, short of getting rid of the car?
