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

Monte Carlo LS V6

About 4 weeks ago after coming out of the grocery store I went to start up my car and the ABS, TRAC OFF & Service Traction System Lights came on. I turned off the car thinking it was the computer and restarted it. It did not go off. I drove the car home and the brakes worked fine. My husband and I took out the manual and read it and it seemed I needed to have it checked. We make an appt. for 5 days later when they could get us in. The day he took the car to drop it off, all the lights were out. No problem it seemed. I had new tires put on about 2 weeks prior and this problem suddenly popped up out of no where. Now, the lights come on and off intermittently and if they come on when I start up the car and I shut the car off and restart it with my foot on the brake and put it in reverse they go out. As soon as I take my foot off of the brake they come back on. Eventually they go out all together after a few trips in the car. Anyone have any information on this or what they think is going on?
