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.

I purchased our 2001 Jimmy on 2/05/01 (new). We experienced the first of 7 electrical system failures on 10/12/01. On 10/12/01 the brake light switch failed and was replaced. On each of the three following dates; 7/26/02, 6/18/03 and 7/02/03 the ignition switch was replaced after the vehicle failed to start or stopped running during operation. It was towed to a GMC dealer on each of those occasions. On 8/08/03 the vehicle again would not start and was towed to the dealer. We were told the problem this time was the battery. On 8/23/03 the fuse block was replaced after the vehicle stopped running during operation. Again towed to a dealer. Again on 10/10/03 the fuse block was replaced after the vehicle stopped running during operation. Again towed to a dealer.

While driving voltage regulator goes down, and headlights go dim. Consumer has taken vehicle to dealer twice for this problem. Consumer feels it's an electrical problem.
