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.

When driving at low speeds there appears to be ABS activating problems. The ABS is activating at the low speeds. The issue is more noticeable when the vehicle is going over uneven payment or a brick road that should not affect ABS.

Many Pontiac Grand Prix owners are having problems with the following sensors. Traction control/sts/ABS lights come on intermittently or stay on. After doing some research this seems to be a common problem and service dealers have acknowledge that this is a problem. How safe is it for our families and ourselves to be driving cars that do this.

When braking and turning the vehicle at slow speeds, ie parking the car in a lot, the ABS will activate. This occurs at least half of the time I make a slow right turn, and has also happened a few times when turning left. I have had the ABS activate even without touching the brake pedal (accelerating while turning from an intersection for example). Dealership has said the problem is in either the ABS sensor or the wiring harness, but the computer was not generating any codes to specify which, so they are so far refusing to fix anything.
