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

1998 Chevrolet Blazer, lt model instrument panel cluster suddenly lost readings on fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and shift selection. Before this happened, the rear window relay stopped working and so did the first speed of the rear windshield wiper. Had vehicle diagnosed and replaced instrument panel cluster. This did not solve problem. Took vehicle for another diagnosis and found computer and wiring harness to be ok. All grounds were checked. Vehicle operates but without a fuel gauge, and temperature gauge and most importantly shift selector.
