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 202006


  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,000 miles


: the contact stated while driving 70 mph the ABS indicator light illuminated continuously. The vehicle lost all braking ability. The vehicle was pulled off the road without incident using the emergency brake. The vehicle was towed to the dealership for inspection. The sbc pump was replaced. After a short period of time the ABS indicator light illuminated again however; the brakes did not fail. The vehicle was taken to the dealer; the problem could not be duplicated. Now for the third time while driving 10 to 15 mph the ABS indicator light illuminated continuously and the vehicle lost all braking ability. The vehicle was driven to the dealer and the sbc pump was replaced for the second time.
