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.

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix Owner Comments

Grand Prix 6-cyl

"charging system failure" has appeared at least 12 times on the driver's message console that I have documented. It is also accompanied by the fan blower repeatedly cutting in and out when turned on. This has happened just about every time the fan is turned on. Have taken the vehicle in to have the problem checked at lambert Pontiac-Buick in cuyahoga falls, Ohio, and they stated they ran a computer diagnostic and could not determine what the problem was, and stated there was nothing they could do about it. Also, one time while accelerating it sounded as if the engine were about to cut off, but it did not. Vehicle only has 3200 miles on it.
