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.

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #3

Noticed that the headlights became intermittent; started occurring more frequently once problem started eventually headlights would not stay on; discovered the problem was relative to the position of the tilt of steering column; vehicle was evaluated and repaired; repair included replacing the wiring harness and the multifunction switch; the wiring harness had shorted out apparently from the repeated movement of the tilt being adjusted; old part is available; I'm reporting this because the problem is dangerous when the headlights go off traveling at high speeds at night. It is also a fire hazard per the mechanic that repaired the vehicle. We did smell smoke at one time but didn't notice any other components damaged. Maybe we were just lucky.

Our 2001 Tahoe has had problems with the drivers side lower light assembly for quite a while. It houses the turn signal, clearance light and daytime running light. It constantly fills with water. There are no cracks in the lens and I have dried it out and replaced bulbs on a monthly basis. I noticed that a large majority of Chevy trucks, Tahoe and Suburban on the road have one of these lights out also, one side or the other.
