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.

The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe. While parked, the contact noticed that the passenger side air bag warning light was illuminated with the passenger seat occuppied. In addition, the gauges on the instrument panel would not provide an accurate reading. The failure would recur intermittently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostics but the technicians were unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 28,000.

problem #1

Feb 062010


  • 4,810 miles
2009 Chevrolet Tahoe - with 5,194 miles intermittent and complete failure of all gauges on instrument panel and also intermittent cycling of door locks and horn as if the vehicle were being locked by using the remote. The failure of the gauges has occurred twice in the last 200 or so miles and the door lock cycling has happened once during the same period of time. There is no apparent pattern to the described problem. Since there are no gauges when the problem occurs, the drivability of the vehicle is severely limited; the speedometer, tachometer, oil, temperature and transmission gear selection indicator are inoperative. The vehicle is scheduled to be inspected on 02/10/2010 by the dealership where the vehicle was purchased and a replacement vehicle is being provided while the vehicle is out of service.
