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 #3

May 182012

Silverado 4.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 126,000 miles


Smoke comes from around the 4-way hazard flasher switch. There is a solenoid clicking, no flashers, no turn signals come on. Turn signals work independently. The battery drains because of this short. The smoke concerns me very much. WTF with Chevy's??? I've never had this problem with Ford or Chrylser, only Chevy's and only in the pickups.

Silverado LS 5.3L V8

Started to hear a clicking sound like the turn signal is on, but it is not. Seems to be more noticable on damp days (after rain).

Silverado LE

  • 85,000 miles

It sounds like my turn signal is engaging all the time... especially when the steering wheel is turned slightly, or coming out of a turn. The indicator light is not coming on, but I hear the contactor or something clicking.

Also, a while back there was a small puff of smoke coming up out of the steering column? What burned out?? How can I find it and repair it?
