problem #2

Nov 182010


  • 130,000 miles
Gas gauge not working, registers full even when not full. Low fuel light will come on if you idle for a few minutes. At the same time this started the ABS light service traction system came on. This has also occurred with our 2002 buck century at approximately the same # of miles and again both the gas gauge reads inaccurately and the ABS light came on.***

problem #1

Silhouette 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 75,900 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette. The day she pulled out of the parking lot with the vehicle, the ABS light, and traction off light came on. When she drove off the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal both began to wobble and vibrate. The dealer told her that the accelerator pedal vibrating will stop if she turns the traction system off. That same day. When coming out of the driveway both the accelerator pedal and the brake pedal would vibrate and would not let her press the brakes or accelerate until it stops vibrating. The keyless remote worked the first times she examined the vehicle. Once off the parking lot it would not work, it would only lock the vehicle and it made the alarm system activate. She was told by the dealer to buy a battery for the keyless remote. When she did, it still did not work. The alarm system would only deactivate when she opened the drivers door with the key and turned the vehicle on. All of the tires on the vehicle had to be replaced. The current mileage was 76,000, and the failure mileage was 75,900. The purchase date was 03/14/2008.
