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.

problem #2

Monte Carlo SS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles


Having issues with intermittent [Service Traction System] light coming on in the middle of a trip. Goes off when I stop then restart the car, only to eventually come on again. Had it looked at once already, but the computer diagnostic test showed nothing. I am now going to wait for the light to come on again to take it in while the light is actively on.

The problems I seem to be having all seemed to have started after I went thru the Onstar upgrade from Analog to Digital. On Friday my whole computer system went nuts and all the light appeared on the dash while driving but went away. Now the Service Traction Control system light comes on and I have no idea if it is real or a phantom reading due to the Onstar upgrade.
