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.

Larry M. reported the same problem on his 95 Bonneville.

You start the car and drop it into gear (Reverse or Drive) and nothing - the car just sits there.

One thing I have started to notice is that if you wait for the traction control light to come on before shifting out of Park it seems to work. This shift problem just started happening in the last few weeks.

Anyone knows the solution, I sure would appreciate hearing from you.
