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.

Uplander 6-cyl

I bought my 2006 Chevy Uplander used with 74,000 in fall of 2011. While at an busy intersection stop sign, the traction control and stability service lights came on, then all dashboards lights came on and the van stalled. All lights (both interior and exterior) shut off and I couldn't restart vehicle. Road conditions were dry and clear. After rolling onto the side of the road and letting it sit for around 5 minutes, it started and did not have any more problems. The following week, it happened again while driving on the highway. Road conditions were slick and snowy and the traction control and stability lights came on, then there is a "clicking" sound in steering column. The van stalled, started, stalled, and started again on while I am driving down the road. I was able to turn onto a country road and shut it off (basically it died). I waited and restarted to try to get to town. It began happening again and this time I lost control and ended up in a field (luckily no injuries). After getting it out I took it to the dealership (no issues on way there) they hooked it up and there weren't any codes coming through. Tech drove it over 4 days and it never happened to him. Then today as I was driving into town, it happened again. The traction/stability light comes on, you hear a "clicking" sound in the steering column, and it begins to die/start again while continuing to drive. Eventually it just dies. I will let it sit for a time and then restart it. Depending on how long it sits (over an hour is better) it will either continue with issues or drive normally for upto a week before issue begins to reoccur.
