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.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 152006

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,050 miles


: the contact stated after turning the ignition switch to the off position, the engine continued to run. The battery cables and the fuses were pulled and the engine continued running for another 45 minutes. As the vehicle was driven to the dealer the transmission would not shift out of third gear and the dashboard lights illuminated. The dealer determined the problem was in the ignition switch and the switch was replaced. Updated 10/30/2006 -

The contact stated vehicle stalled intermittently. The dealer replaced the fuel pump on two separate occasions. This did not correct the problem. Also, the dealer replaced the ignition system. This replacement did not correct the problem again. The dealer could not find the cause for the problem. The vehicle is still having intermittent stalling. Problems.
