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.

2004 Oldsmobile Alero Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 152016

Alero ES 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,500 miles


The car starts every time, however after it is started and running, put it in gear and within one min, the lights in the dash come on. The ones that come on every time are the Anti-Lock, Traction Control, and Service Car Soon. I was told it was the Ignition switch. So I spent the money and ordered one, for a cost of $98.00, took two hours to put it in (myself.) Needless to say, that didn't fix the problem. Took it to garage to have a tester put on it and find out the reason why. But they claim there is no code's that come up. Yet the car is due for inspection in January, and they wont inspect it with the lights on. The sad thing is, the car is in great shape outside of this problem. NEED HELP !!!!!!!!
