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.

1998 GMC Jimmy Owner Comments

The ABS light is on in my 1998 GMC Jimmy. I have heard about a recall about this particular item, but my truck isn't qualified for it. I'm wondering why and if there is anything I can do to get it to. There is something with the sensor and corroding in the recall. I believe that may be my problem. I haven't fixed it yet because I was hoping it would be under the recall. What happens is if the light were to come off, my brakes lock up. In the recall, it mentions that this sensor getting corroded causes slow traffic accidents. I haven't gotten into any accidents, but I would like to know if it would be under the recall before I have to spend the money to get it fixed.
