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.

problem #2

Nov 302008

Silverado LS 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 177,437 miles


It's an intermittent problem that comes and goes fairly randomly. No 4wd, tow/haul, cruise control, A/C, heater, fan, odometer, fuel gauge, Most recent DTC's are p0719 (which i cleared, wiggled every wire I could find and hasn't come back yet) and u1026 which seems to be what triggers the failure. Still driving it around, got my radio but it's too damn hot in AZ to be without A/C. Someone please help me!!
