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.

1998 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 120,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Chevrolet Blazer. The contact stated that the multi-function switch continues to operate after she manually turns off the switch. The failure could prevent her from warning the driver's in the rear that the vehicle is braking and/or stopped, which could cause a crash. The manufacturer would not assume responsibility because the VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign id number 08V231000 (exterior lighting:brake lights:switch). The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were 120,000.

Consumer stated that at one point headlights and flashers were not working properly. Consumer took vehicle to dealer and found that the wait was too long. Then, consumer decided to take vehicle to a private certified mechanic, and was told by him that multi-function switch was defective. Had this replaced, but hazard lights did not work half the time. Also, something was draining battery because vehicle will not start. Went to the web, and found that there had been a recall on vehicle. Consumer called the manufacturer, and was told that this vehicle was not in the recall. The vehicle ball joints were also replaced.
