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.

Venture LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


I have a 2000 Chev Venture. The blower switch level one did not work for about a month. Now levels one through four will not work(leaving only level five working at this time). I also have a problem with heavy sludge build up in the radiator.

Venture LXT V6

  • Automatic transmission

First the heater in my 2000 Chevy Venture stopped working this summer on settings (1-4), now even 5 will not work. I was told that it could be either the switch or the resistor under the dash (which I couldn't locate). How easy is it to change the switch or the resistor? Any help would be appreciated.

I have the same problem with my blower fan that it doesn't work on the first 2 settings. You have to turn it all the way to 3 so you either get really hot or really cold. It's very annoying.

The first and second settings on the blower hasn't worked since I owned the van; today the 5th setting went out. Only the 3rd and 4th blower fan settings are working.

Venture LS Extended

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,000 miles

First the switch level 1 wouldn't work, now level 2 doesn't work (only 3 or higher) ... hot as hell or freezing, your choice.

I've read that the resistor needs replacing which makes sense--going to go find and put in myself.
