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.

2004 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 232012


  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


I have replaced the fuses, the lights, the entire lighting assembly (cause it rotted and started falling out). New wiring put in and it still shorts out every couple of weeks.

Completely unsafe to drive without turn signal lights day and night. Headlights short so cannot drive at night.

Rear lighting assembly also had several (3) shorts with melting connectors that has needed replaced.

Venture LS 3.4L

Chevrolet will never get my business again. Bought this Van new in 2004. Since then the passengers side window quite working. I've spent money replacing parts on it and it still doesn't work. The gas gauge quit working, the drivers side rear turn signal board and connector have had to be replaced twice, the headlight capsules have all had to be replaced, the lighting system is a total joke.

Obviously this electrical system is junk and GM can keep their vehicles in the future. I'll stay with Toyota and Honda from this point on.

I have replaced light after light and every week they start going out! I wish someone could tell me why or Chevy should just recall and fix this. I have talked to other people with the same vehicle and guess what they have the same problem! I am ready to trade this P.O.S. for a different make and give up Chevy all together! This problem is the last straw
