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.

2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 242007

Monte Carlo 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I own a Monte Carlo ss 2006, and while driving the battery cable or another part of it came loose or malfunctioned, to where it was short circuiting the power to the car. I was on the highway driving and lost all power, even the alternator stopped. This seemed like it was triggering the theft protection; anyhow I had no power, and had to coast to the side of the road. I put the car in park and couldn't turn my key back to the release position, so I popped the hood but couldn't get out of the car because the door wouldn't unlock. I pulled on both handles and with no power the car wouldn't let me out. A person stopped and opened the hood and moved the battery wiring around some, which gave me power to at least open my door now. I took the car directly to the dealer ship to be serviced and looked into. My main concern is if I am in a wreck and lose all power to the vehicle then how am I to open the door(s). The handle should unlock the car door from the inside with or without power.
