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.

I have a handicap accessible van made by M.C. mobility and GM. My automatic sliding door opens itself and executes the ramp at different times. Once I was at the drive thru and put my car in park and it opened the door and executed the ramp. Other times it has opened and closed by itself. One time during an outdoor event some folks watched my car for entertainment for 4 hours and during that time period it opened and closed itself 14 times. We have had the door worked on many times and it is well documented and I would be happy to share the documentation. The wheels on my door have been changed several times I have replaced my car battery and the batteries of both key fobs. Right now it has been working correctly for about 60 days

Beginning at 15K miles the power sliding doors began not functioning properly. The would automatically open as if there was an obstruction in the doorway. At 18K miles there was a complete failure to the motor drive assembly. After repair both doors continued to auto open. During normal driving conditions at interstate speed the door did come open with no passengers in it. When the doors are not functioning properly you must deactivate lock out rocker switch on overhead console, then manually close. If you re-energize the lock out switch door will auto open. At times the door ajar chime will sound while the doors are shut and locked and will not turn off, once to the point of running out the battery. When doors do not want to shut they force themselves open repeatedly. Multiple occasions a month since 2006, I have had it in for service numerous times with no success. The motor and control logic sits adjacent to the rear seatbelt mechanism. Both seatbelts in the 3rd row are not working properly since they have attempted to repair this problem.
