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.

Grand Am GT 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 178,000 miles


Well I'll begin here... I was driving after washing my car the cruise control quit working as I was going down the road. this has happened a couple of times before. then I stopped to get fuel about 20min later, then when I got going again I noticed my gauges, autolocks, a/c and auto lights were not working. a few of the dash lights come on and the car still runs fine. I think it's the bcm and if so will one out of another car from a junk yard work or do I need to reprogram a new one :(

I will be driving along everything is fine then all of a sudden the airbag light will come on, once it comes on the electric immediatly goes bonker...the headlights will go brighter, the heater will crank up on its own...Sometimes the battery light will also come on...Have no clue what the hell is going on...Then the airbag light will turn back off and everything goes back to normal, then people think i am crazy when i try to explain/show them because it never does it when i need it too.
