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 3500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 102007

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,610 miles


"service 4WD" error code shows up on dash display when driving through mud and water puddles, the vehicle enters 4WD before entering the mud/water but goes back to 2wd after being in the mud/water for a minute or two, also the 4WD push button light flashes when code is showing. After letting the vehicle dry out, the "service 4WD" error message does not appear. I need the 4WD all the time in the mud, not when it feels like working.
