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.

2003 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 65,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Venture. He stated the brake lights were inoperable. Upon attempting to change the light bulbs, he noticed the socket and the circuit boards were melted because of irregular electric flow. The risk of vehicle crash is increased if the ability to signal intentions to other drivers is not available. The failure mileage was 65,000 and the current was 72,000. The VIN was not available.

Venture 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,500 miles
On my 2003 Chevy Venture extended I have had to replace both tail light braking bulbs. My concern is that the bulbs elements inside the bulb didn't burn out they shorted out at the socket on both drive and passenger side melting the bulb to the socket. I'm afraid that this is gooing to create a electrical fire.
