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.

Silverado 3500

Affects all current Chevrolet vehicles currently sold into the usa. Chevrolet has begun using the backup lamps (reverse lights) to illuminate the area around the vehicle even when the vehicle is off and not in reverse gear; typically when the driver is accessing & egressing the vehicle, or has actuated the door lock remote. The result is a vehicle appears to be reversing, or about to reverse, even though it's not capable of movement. Approaching vehicles assume the Chevrolet is about to move, yet are unable to verify the driver can see them and so can't proceed without escalating impact risk; those who do pass will Focus attention on the potential movement of the Chevrolet rather than scanning for general pedestrian traffic. In addition, use of backup lights in this manner can teach children to disregard backup lights as a potential movement indicator, and increases their chances of runover by walking behind a vehicle that is truly in reverse and about to move. According to FMVSS 108 the use of backup lamps shall comply with applicable sae standards such as: Sae J387 apr2014 3.4.1 backup function a lighting device used to provide illumination behind the vehicle and to provide a warning signal to pedestrians and other drivers when the vehicle is backing up (reversing) or is about to back up. 3.4.2 backup lamp(s) (reversing) lamp or lamps providing the backup function; more commonly referred to as a "reversing lamp" in ece regulations.(also listed as a road illumination device).
