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.

Once again my wipers failed to work during a down pour of rain. I had to pull to the side of the road to avoid an accident. My wipers work intermittently or not at all sometimes. Earlier models of this vehicle were recalled for this very same problem. Why hasn't this model been recalled?

While driving in rainy weather, the windshield wipers failed to work properly. This was an intermittent problem. Called dealership, and mechanic indicated that problem could not be corrected because of a lack of recall. The windshield wipers would not turn off when they were switched to off position or would not engage.

Windshield wipers fail to turn on when needed. Wipers often stop working while switch is in proper "on" position for operation during rain - very dangerous. Wipers fail to shut off when switched into correct "off" position. Wipers adjust their own intermittent speed.

Have had problems with windshield wiper motor failures similar to others listed. When turning wipers on in any delay setting or continuous slow, the wipers would quit at random times. Sometimes moving switch to continuous high would get wipers to work again. Sometimes not. Also wipers, when turned off would go to bottom of swipe and come back up 1 inch. I have since taken out the relay circuit board and resoldered connectors to the wiring harness and fixed a partially burned out circuit. Wipers work fine after.

There was a recall on our 1995 S-10 truck and our 1998 Chevrolet blazier has the exact same part and is also defective also. The windshield wipers on our 1998 blazier donot work some times they won't work other times and sometimes they won't shut off. Our gas pedal sticks when you try to take off.

Two things: 1. consistant knocking noise in front end. Had it fixed while under warranty, but it continued at a later date. 2. windshield wiper motor malfunction. Windshield wipers at times will not turn off making driving in snow or rain dangerous.

I am the owner of a 1998 Chevy Blazer. My wipers have ceased to function and there is a large recall on GM vehicles 1994-1997. My vehicle was manufactured in Oct. 1997 and so was the wiper box. The recall was for 1.77 million trucks. I think it should also include the early 1998 (technically they are 1997) vehicle. My VIN # is [xxx]. with GM/Chevy knowing the enormity of this problem, it is no fair that I should have to pay $125 to correct their defect in their product. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
