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.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 132012

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • 80,000 miles


The "service stability" warning message displayed, ABS warning light, tc tire deflation, and brake failure light. The first failure occurred on or about February 13, 2012. I took the vehicle to the Chevrolet dealership immediately and the repair was completed by March 27, 2012 after 3 attempts. The computer tester was alleged to show that the ebcm had failed and was replaced. This did not clear the defect and the same warnings continued when ever the car was washed or became wet from rain. The defect was said to be in the wire that powered the ebcm in the proximity of the firewall. The wire was stated to be frayed. When the wire was replaced the problem was corrected. I am concerned that the wire may have been damaged from abrasion near the firewall combined with corrosion from road salt. This could have lead to failure of the ABS, airbags, and stability control at a time when it is most needed.
