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.

after a month of trying to find the problem, {cars equipped with the passlock system} ,it is an anti-theft device to shut off ther fuel injectors in the case of the key not being recognized.

{the chip not being on the key , but is in the tumbler assembly}.{gm recall 02008}is with the passlock system being installed, is still delivering to much voltage through the switch burning it up ,not letting the security system recognizing the key and letting it shut off the injectors. after the new harness being installed and reprograming the anti-theft it started and drove away. hope this helps!

THE PEOPLE WHO DESIGN THESE CARS SHOULD HAVE TO WORK ON THEM FOR ATLEAST 20 YEARS BEFORE THE GET TO DESIGN THEM!
