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.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Owner Comments

problem #5

Jul 092006

Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


- the contact owns a 2001 Silverado pickup. The contact stated that every 2000 to 3000 miles while driving at 50 mph the engine would lose power momentarily, and then start back up. The contact would sometimes have to pull over on the road and restart the vehicle. The failure became more and more frequent. He took the vehicle to three or four different dealers, and they could not duplicate or diagnose the failure. The contact determined that the failure was due to the ignition and had it repaired, after being told he would be reimbursed the contact has not received the reimbursement. Also the brake light and ABS lights turn on intermittently when driving without applying the brakes. This failure had occurred ten times. The transmission, fuel gauge sending unit, the right power window all had to be replaced. The engine light illuminated. Updated 03/07/07.

Was rolling the passenger side window down while backing up with trailer when I heard a noise and the window stopped mid-way. Needed to purchase the entire power window assembly instead of purchasing a simple cable.

Drivers side window crapped out. Window doesn't go down, cable broken at motor drive. The truck is a 2001 Chevy Silverado, it's only 3, well technically 4 years old. The part to replace it from the dealership is well over rated in price. You have to purchase the whole component. Just the cable can not be purchased. It's my understanding that this is a regular occurrence with these window regulators.
