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.

2003 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

S-10 Pickup 4WD 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles


My 2003 Chevrolet S-10 pickup has a dangerous ABS system in that it locks up under routine stops and actually appears to pull vehicle to an abrupt stop. I took it into a mechanic who said that he had another owner of the S-10 with same problem. He advised me to remove the fuse #22 which would turn off the ABS and return my vehicle to standard braking. The mechanic said he was looking up information on how to fix the problem, but had not success.

2003 Chevrolet S-10. Brake lights stay on. Replaced the switch and it fixed it only a short time. Many complaints on the internet and I know of one other owner, of an S-10 truck with the same problem.
