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.

2001 Chevrolet S10 ZR2 package.brake lights dont work, fuses blown for door locks and mirrors, smoke was coming from driver side firewall. Took to shop to have them check wires. They said nothing was wrong with wires. Driving lights turn on by themself while car is not running, cannot shut off headlights, had to disconnect headlights. Took to another shop. Has been in shop for over a week now and they said our wiring harness was melted. Some kind of white lubricant or silicone is inside of harness? we have pictures to prove it. And we will get a report from the mechanic shop. I only have 45,000 miles on my truck. I am a very unhappy customer. Please help!

While driving 50 mph front wheels locked up and the vehicle lost brake power. Emergency brake had to be engaged to assist in stopping the vehicle. Dealership indicated that this occurred because the steering wiring cable was grounded to a location where it should not have been. This resulted in the wiring being exposed and rubbed, causing an electrical short. To correct the failure dealership replaced the wiring harness.

While making a left turn vehicle stalled, and vehicle would not restart. Consumer had vehicle towed to the dealer for analysis, and mechanic determined that coil wire needed to be replaced due to a burn out.
