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.

ABS braking system totally failed and went out. Replaced ABS. Was told by two different mechanics that they had replaced a lot of these systems recently. Parking brake went out. Used, maybe 5 times. Have not replaced yet. Was also told that it was common for this system to go out without use.

Contact states the ABS comes on while driving approximately 5 mph, causing the manual brakes to pump at low speed, leading to extended stopping distances. The service dealer replaced the right front hub and the sensor. The ABS light did not illuminate, indicating there were some problems with the ABS. This occurred during normal weather conditions.

I read about the investigation about the brakes on GM's SUV's. I have a 2001 GMC Yukon and when you apply the brakes, just before it stops the anti-lock brakes starts pulsing and the vehicle continues forward 3 to 10 feet. The vehicle is at the dealer right now getting the oil changed and I am getting a quote on the brakes. I called GM's warranty division and they said it is not a recall yet. My file # IS1-332799234.

The antilock brakes on my 2001 GMC Yukon XL [xxx] activate at low speeds and when cornering on dry pavement. This is annoying and disconcerting. I feel that my stopping distance is increased and pedal effort is also increased. The problem is getting worse.

I was driving home and my anti-lock brake light came on. I drove home and turned off the car but it did not completely shut off. The battery was disconnected at the advice of the dealer as to not cause further damage. The car was towed to the dealership to fix. The cause of the problem was the ebcm internal relay shorted out causing ABS pump to constantly run. The part was replaced costing over $1200. This also caused damage to the battery so it was also replaced.

The ebcm went out on my 2001 GMC Yukon ABS system causing the ABS pump to run continually even without the key on. Pulling the fuse stopped the pump from running, but I don't have ABS, which to me is a safety concern. GM should recall this module for safety reasons, especially since there is a long list of vehicals with this known problem. I have not replaced this part due to the $1000 price from the dealer, nor do I intend to until GM issues a recall on this defective part. For the money that I gave GM for this vehical, I expect more customer service that this, I have given them enough money for them to just brush my safety (and others' safety as well) aside.
