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.

The General Motors windshield wipers in my 1998 Blazer has the same problem as earlier models of GM trucks. They have had this problem from 1991 why can't they be made to fix it! I was lucky to get home alive in the rain storm yesterday. They just quit and I could see vary little.

Refer to nhsta campaign #98V150001 dated 7/1/1998. I am having problems with my windshield wipers not working properly. Intermittent switch does not work like it should, wipers continuously run when using mist function to clean windshield, sometimes wipers do not come on at all. Recall issued 5/1/2003 to include 1996-1997 Blazer. Mine is 1998 and is not included in recall per dealer even though I am having the same problem.

We are aware that windshield wiper motors on 1997 chev. Blazer have been recalled for repairs. We own a 1998 Blazer that we purchased in November of 1997, so it was manufactured in 1997. The windshield wipers on our Blazer do not work most of the time. We are wondering if a recall is planned for the 1998 Blazer also.

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles
Had to replace altenator. Handle of passenger seat fell off in hand, causing riding and sitting difficult. Puts me right up to the air bag. Purchased this vehicle to take my husband to nashville, for his heart transplant visits, needed a reliable vehicle. On the last trip there, 70 mph, in hard rain, no windshield wipers, just quit on the expressway, in heavy traffic. Gas pedal also sticks, and pushes with force, when it releases. (wonder we haven't hit someone). Being on social security, we thought paying extra, for and extended warranty would protect us. (a wasted $1800) the payment takes almost half our income, we can't afford to fix the manufacturers mistakes. By looking at the other complaints, we're not the first with the above problems. Very unhappy consumer. Our first payment on the Blazer was 1-14-02, we began having these problems 6 months later.

Whenever windshield wipers are used they work whenever they want too. Sometimes they run continually. Sometimes they stop all together. I used to have a GMC sonoma that did the exact same thing and received a recall. This problem was fixed on the sonoma. This happens any time the wipers are used in the Blazer. I would like this fixed immediately at no cost to myself.
