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 Grand Prix Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 012004

Grand Prix 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. The security system is too sensitive because the car will lock and he has to wait for 20 minutes to move the vehicle. This will occur if the key is dirty or anything that will trigger the anti-theft system. He does not mind that the car has this feature. But the feature is too sensitive. This occurred a lot here lately. The contact contacted the manufacturer, and they told him that they could not reset the system, and there was nothing they could do about this vehicle because this was simply the way it was made.
