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.

problem #1

Mar 132010

Sierra 1500

  • Automatic transmission
  • 117,000 miles


Don't know if I can fix this myself or not... I should be able to. It's a matter of getting parts and info to change out the window, right?!

But went to put down my drivers side window and it went down with noises of crunching and glass breaking. The window then went up automatically by itself and won't do anything else now. When I try to lower or raise it the motor purrs so I'm thinking the motor is ok... But the window itself moves only millimeters. Most interesting to hear of other people having this happen too... along with the fuel gauge problem..

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
