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.

2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #2

May 012013

Monte Carlo SS 6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles


Looking for a fix. A computer analysis didn't reveal the problem. Currently, while driving all gauges will suddenly turn off/deactivate, then immediately turn back on. Only recent parallel issue has been a bouncing (climbing) gas gauge that is only accurate with a full tank. This appears to be a separate issue.

The gauges turning off happened to occur while a mechanic was driving it. He had no clue. Could this be an ignition issue? Other thoughts???

Monte Carlo SS 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

I can't believe that GM won't fix this issue. After reading all the complaints about the problem you would think GM would step up to the plate and make things right. My 18 year old daughter drives the Monte she has $700-850 to fix the dash. GM needs to do the right thing.
