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.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #1

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

Battery died, replaced. Battery lights coming on while driving the vehicle, unable to start vehicle, vehicle stalling. Unable to operate vehicle due to loss of power. This happened while driving 30 mph in the rain. Barely able to pull vehicle off roadway. No power at all including lights and hazard lights. Took to Chevrolet dealer - found no problem, nothing done to correct. Was told that after market alarm system (installed at Chevrolet dealer) could be the cause of the problem. Took to audio installer and had alarm removed. Was told by different Chevy dealer that they had the same problem right now with a Tahoe in their shop. They removed alarm and have had no problems since (2 days). Would need to drive my vehicle to see if it happens again. This is a severe safety issue as it could easily result in an accident because oncoming vehicles can not see you without hazard lights. Old part is available. I have kept the alarm system if needed to review.
