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.

2002 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 292004

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,800 miles


Sylvania bulb in the rear brake light socket on passenger side failed. When I went to replace the bulb I found the bulb and socket had melted. Replaced the bulb into the burnt socket and it is now working. My concern is that no fuse blew and why did this socket melt and burn? vehicle is a 2002 Chevrolet, veture VIN number 1gndx03E92D22013. I have several photos of the failed bulb denoting the damage that occured from the heat. Contacted the dealer and he said I could pay him $70 to do an electrical diagnosic check. Have also written to GM about it.
