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.

2000 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 032009

Silverado LS Z71 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


Its started when my brake light and antilock brakes light came on after i put bigger tires on my truck....305s!!! I noticed the lights turning on and off sometimes after a few minutes sometimes after i hit a major bump on the road somtimes not at all...i took it in to a dealer to get a diagnostic check and several codes came back to the ABS module...I got a junk yard product that was in good condition because brand new the part would run me $1,500 my baby is worth it but lets face it money like that is not easy to come I got this used part and I had it installed and the brakes were bleed. The boys at the dealer did another diagnostic check and the codes never came back...but i realized when I drove off the lot my brake pedal was not as hard when i would press down on it as before it went into the dealer. My mechanic recommended me changing out the master cylinder and I did that and I took the air out of the brakes and still the brake does not brake properly and i am out of options. Anybody have any suggestions or a path to guide me towards it would be a big help...thanks
