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.

2003 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 262014

Suburban LT 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,755 miles


Every time we take it out of 4WD we get this message. Sometimes if we are moving at 25 MPH and shift back to 2WD will we complete the shift without a problem. I've also heard that this can be caused by a defective transfer case switch, but I don't know how much that will be to fix, this car has done this since new.

the "service 4w drive" light comes on almost every other day. It has been taken to multiple Chevy dealers and mechanics who can't figure it out either. I didn't even use it yet and the message was popping up! Still does today, 8 years later!!!
