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.

2001 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 102005

Grand Am

  • 82,750 miles


The body control module caused two batteries to fail. The turn signal switch failed causing clicking noise in the ash. When the BCM failed the consumer noticed a 1 amp draw. The dealer could not duplicate the problem but replaced the BCM per the consumers request. The vehicle was bucking and felt as if there was a major miss. This was due to faulty #4 injector. The injector was replaced and the PCM was reprogrammed.
