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.

2002 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 072007

(reported on)

Silverado Step Side V-8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 115,000 miles


all of the dash warning lights come on and cycle through major components on the eft side monitoring window. After truck is turned off ans the security warning light continues to flash. After 12 hurs or more the battery is drawn down and will not start. Then the battery must be recharged. If the truck is started and stopped continuously, there isn't a problem starting, but the warning lights continue to burn. After traveling 400+ miles the lights will cycle to normal, not on, for leess than 150 miles.

The 12-volt gages do not respond to temp, gas, ect.

any help I would appreciate.
