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

Dec 012008

Suburban LT

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


My seats worked fine all the time and then a few weeks ago my husband noticed the seat was not working.I then tried the following day and he was correct they had stopped working. The leather seats are freezing in the winter and especially for a 120lb person who is always cold. Is this an easy fix so I don't have to pay a lot of money to get fixed. Im hoping its a fuse and if so where is the fuse box as I looked in my manual and cannot find anything about it.

thank you

first the passenger seat heater wasn't working now that works and the driver's side doesn't. i checked all the fuses and switches and everything seems okay. i hoping this happened to someone else and you can give me a simple solution because i don't want to spend a thousand bucks to fix this. my wife is bugging me to do something since the leather seats are very cold in the winter.

Suburban 2500

First the seat was making noises but dealer couldn't hear anything. Kind of a twisting noise. This went on for about 5000 miles and they my seat really heated up. I had to sit on a towl when the warmer was on because it burned my !@##$. (we live in the snow, I had to use it) Then nothing the seat burned out? Dealer quoted me about $1,000 to fix and ordered part. This was replaced at around 103,000 now at 111,000 it won't work at all.
