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.

LeSabre ES

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,672 miles

This problem really upset me! The wipers wouldn't shut off until we could shut off the ignition. I then pulled the fuse. When we got it to the dealer, he found a problem with the control module that is integral to the motor assembly, so the entire thing had to be replaced at considerable cost. I seriously considered going to a used part, but decided against it because we expected to keep the car for quite a while.

Update from Feb 15, 2013: The car now has >176,000-miles on it and we haven't had this problem recur, so far. Hope to make it to 200,000 before replacing it. Our car stands outside all the time, so I guess moisture could be a problem. Hope the replacement resolves your problem. At this stage, if it happens again, it'll be replaced with a used unit.

We've also replaced all the window lifts once, and two of them twice.
