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.

While driving my car, it just shut off automatically. Then it has been doing it multiple time since. It can happen three to five times per day. The dealership has tried to reboot the computer system numerous times, it still shuts off with no warning. I just listen to the fan if it shuts off, I have to put the transmission in neutral, and start the car while coasting. I feel that this is related to the GM Chevrolet recall. Feel free to call for a more in depth description of the ignition problem. For the affected parts question, it did not include ignition, therefore, I listed the areas of the car affected when the engine would shut off, the steering, braking were also affected. Thank you

2006 Monte Carlo has had problems with the seat belt and air bag failure. The air bag light illuminated. Diagnostics were run but no problems were found. When the air bags failed, this caused an issue with the onstar system. The air bag light was on while someone was sitting in the passenger seat. This meant that the air bag was not activated. The seat belt indicator light illuminated. The dealer replaced and reprogrammed the SDM. The onstar system had been replaced once. The air conditioner has been replaced once. The keyless entry system has been replaced and reprogrammed numerous times. There has also been a problem with the traction control system not functioning.
