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.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #3

Jul 032013

Silverado LS 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 142,000 miles


Had to find a connector in a junk yard and re-wire the connector in order for a/c heater to work. I still have problems with the a/c as it shuts off and the heat comes on. Have to stop truck, shut it off, restart the truck, before a/c works.

The heater connector glowed red hot, threw sparks when on high. My problem for one is the cost of the connector 88.00. I unhooked the connector it was ruined, the resistor costs 54.00. why does this cost so much? why is this not recalled? this is a real fire hazard. at least make it available for aftermarkets so the regular joe can afford to fix there vehicle.
