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.

Speedometer fails to reset to zero. When vehicle comes to a stop, the speedometer indicator stops at a speed above zero (I.e., 30, 40, 50 mph). When the vehicle resumes traveling, the speedometer indicator starts incrementing at the speed at which it stopped (I.e., 30, 40, 50 mph). Therefore, the indicated speed is much higher than the actual speed. This is not one incident, but an ongoing continuous problem, and very dangerous.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
2004 GMC Sierra at 50,000 miles developed a speedometer short in the instrument cluster which caused wild swings in mph readings. After mentioning it to a friend with a Chevy Silverado, same year and mileage, I found he had the identical problem. I had the cluster replaced at my cost.

Speedometer acting erratic, speedometer may register 120 mph when I'm going 60 mph. Then it finally quits. It costs a lot of money to get replaced. I do not know how fast or slow I'm going which endangers me and everybody around me.
