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 own a 2001 GMC Yukon and this is the second time the ABS module has failed on it. After it fails, the motor continues to run. Not only do you not have ABS, but the motor heats up. If you don't notice it right away, it will drain your battery, leave you stranded, or worse.

The contact was slowing down to come to a stop and the ABS light and parking light came on. He increased his stopping distance in order to get the vehicle to come to a stop. Took the vehicle to the dealer; they hooked it up to a diagnostic machine. The dealer stated it needed a new electronic box. There was no free remedy to fix the box. The seat belt on the passenger's side in the second row of the vehicle locked in the buckle, other times it will come loose while in the seat belt. Also when turning the vehicle to the right or left one could hear a clicking sound. The dealer was not willing to fix it free of charge.

Multiple failures with 2001 Yukon. Dashboard light, air bag and computer malfunctioned. Problems starting after accelerating. The vehicles computer malfunctioned causing dashboard lights, airbag, L.E.D, and brake lights to turn on. The speedometer froze.
