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.

Low beam lights went out. We replaced bulbs, they worked for a short time. Low beams went out two or three days later. Went to local garage, they replaced wire from battery to lights as they were not getting any power. Lights worked for two or three days. Trailblazer was in shop for a week, unable to find issue. Called Chevrolet dealership, at first they thought it was a 2007 which has a recall for the issue. Found it was a 2008, no recall. Found bad/burnt/exploded fuse labeled 15016745. Have found multiple other people with same issue online.

Trailblazer

  • 62,000 miles
I was driving down a state highway with my cruise control set at 57 mph and all of the sudden all of the lights came on in the console. My on star did not work, nor did the radio or anything electrical in my vehicle. My vehicle was still running, but none of the gauges, lights, windows, etc. Were working. I pulled to the side of the road and then drove it to the dealership. The dealership kept the vehicle for 3 weeks and were not able to diagnose nor fix the problem. All of the sudden 3 weeks later they got into the vehicle and the problem had resolved itself.
