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

I changed out ignition switch on my 2002 Silverado 1500 and now it won't start. I mean it doesn't do anything. All lights and other electrical things work but it doesn't even attempt to crank and I have no idea how to unlock the security passlock system. I was just wondering if that could be bypassed somehow or what I need to do so I can drive my truck again. I have used the same key that I've always used to start it since I've had it so apparently putting the key in the ignition for 10 mins doesn't work.
