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.

Since winter, ABS light comes on everythime I turn the wheel hard left, like parking. Sometimes the warning light goes into a 2nd warning telling me to service the brakes, Once I turn off the truck, it clears. So I bought an extended warranty and never realized that all along I believed I would pay a deductible and I would be all set no matter what. WRONG. Seems unless the part breaks, if anything is dirty or rusty as in the sace of my ABS issue, its NOT covered. I looked at the warranty as if no matter what causes a problem, something is malfunctioning so just fix it! I pay the deductible and everyones happy. I was told that if they pulled the fron hubs apart and they found dirt or rust causing the issue, I have to pay all labor costs. I learned a lesson I guess. Its a crap shoot! In this case I'm nervous to bring it in, and yet if a motor failed or tranny, the warranty would be golden!

Suburban 5.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles

went to the dealership and they told me that it would cost anywhere between 3000 to 4000 dollars to replace the abs module and the abs pump something like that. i think this is a bit steep for this particular problem. i would like to know if there is a company near my home town or somewhere i can send this module to get repaired.
