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

Silverado LT 6.0L V8

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

THIS PROBLEM HAS MADE ME LATE FOR WORK AND STRANDED AT VERIOUS LOCATIONS CAUSE TRUCK WOULD NOT START. THE BATTERY DRAINS AND THE ALTERNATOR CANNOT CHARGE THE BATTERY. I HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTING THE BATTERY LEADS AND CHARGING WITH A TRICKLE CHARGE BATTERY CHARGER AND THEN HOKING THE LEADS BACK UP TO GET ME TO WORK. BY THE TIME I WORK MY 8 HOURS AND TRY TO START MY TRUCK, IT JUST BARELY STARTS. I HAVE NO WARNING MESSAGES ON DASH AND THE ENGINE GAGES SEEM TO BE DRAWING SOME JUICE WHEN THE ENGINE IS OFF AND IT SITS FOR ABOUT A MINUTE THE GAUGES SEEM TO MOVE CLOCKWISE. AS SOON AS YOU PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION OR OPEN THE DRIVERS DOOR THE GAUGES WILL DROP OFF ALL THE WAY TO THE LEFT. PAIN IN THE ASS FOR A $38,000.00 TRUCK.

ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT.
