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.

2001 GMC Jimmy Owner Comments

problem #4

  • 30,000 miles


I purchased a 2001 GMC Jimmy. Problem is ignition lock. Key stays in lock, have to fiddle with ignition move car, turn wheel to find just the right place. Thought just my car, but have seen others with same problem, local dealer said can fix for about 100 dollars they never looked at vehicle. Was told by GM on phone to push button on column to get key out, I don't have one was told book shows one any suggestion the vehicle fits my needs was really super low miles.

The dash lights were on as if car was not running but car was running. All gauges would not work. This was intermittent. The key could not be removed from the ignition during one of these instances. Dealer replaced ignition switch.
