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.

2002 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 102006

Bonneville 4-cyl

  • 67,000 miles


Warning lights for anti-lock brakes, brakes, and traction control come on and off randomly. Anti-lock brake feature is disabled when light is on. Brake performance is greatly reduced sometimes while warning lights are on. Traction control does not function when light is on. Dealer said GM had issued a service bulletin for corrosion in a wiring harness plug leading to the wheel rotation sensor. Dealer stated replacement wiring harness was $500. Dealer tried cleaning contacts on plug and applying conductive corrosion preventing. Did not fix problem. Severe safety issue when anti-lock feature is deactivated, traction control deactivated, and brake performance is reduced. Developed problem in December 2006.
