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.

1998 olds Intrigue. Sometimes when I'm driving the whole dashboard lights up and the car shuts down. Why?? also, sometimes the car won't even start, the security light comes on, and may not start for ten minutes, or 24 hours...I have a new transmission, I have had the car scanned, but no codes come up. I have changed the battery, the alternator has been checked, and recently had the key switch changed. The very next day it happened again!!! I was driving and out of nowhere, all of my dash lights come on, and the car just shuts down. The passlock security light comes on and stays on, disabling the car's ability to start. GM has said there's nothing they can do about it, but I've seen hundreds of complaints over the internet of owners with the same problem. Just the fact that it may come on while I'm driving is a serious hazard in itself.

98 olds Intrigue security light comes on intermittently with no provocation. Often the car decides not to start and I am left stranded for up to half an hour while the security system resets.
