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 #1

May 232011

Silverado 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles

The key has not been able to rotate to the accessory position since around 30,000 miles. Not long afer that I was the only one that could start it. Now at 170,000 the wife and daughter have started drving it and the problem has gotten to the point I can not start it. If the steering wheel happens to lock then I am screwed as it must be free before the key will turn. I have tried forcing th wheel left and right , rocking it left and right, holding pressure on it I have found that if I use the tilt steeing in a rough manner I can get the key to release the steering wheel and start the truck. I first lower the steering wheel and then throw it upwards and when it hits the top stop the key will turn.
