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.

Silverado 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission

the electrical problem started at the beginning of December. all the lights would go dim then the truck shut off on me doing 60 mph. the shop that i took it to said the alternator was bad it was replaced. then it did it again so the shop replaced the battery then a few days later it did it again so then the shop replaced the starter. but now today 12/13/09 it started doing it again. i love my truck i bought it brand new in 1997 it was a left over. but if there is some one out there who can tell me what the hell is wrong with my truck i would really appreciate it. I'm a redneck so i need my truck don't want to have to sell it .
