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 would say that aftermarket and OE options they are very proud of that turn signal combination switch.

problem #1

Sep 222003

(reported on)

Century Custom LE

  • 24,000 miles

The signal light and brake light loop through the signal light switch which for starters is a really bad idea to start with.

The signal light and brake light on one side (in my case the drivers side) doesn't work sometimes.

I live in canada so the price to fix it was over 500.00 dollars. About $460.00 just for the signal light switch which is absolutely ridiculous. I'm hoping that there will be a recall on this problem real soon to get my money back but as of right now theres nothing. With this many miles i don't think this should be something that i would need to replace.
