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 #3

Silverado 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 161,500 miles


At times it will not even turnover or try to start . Sometimes it will pull my battery down over night . I put a new battery on it that did not help any. I really like the truck . I'm just tired of the starting problem . Can anyone tell me what the hell is wrong with it ?

I was driving down the highway and the truck just stopped like I had turned off the key while driving. Everything else still worked just the truck would not start. Key would not ignite any spark. Put in new ignition switch and ignition and starter relay and still nothing. Any ideas out there?
