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.

Same discription as campaign 98V150001: Winshield wipers stop working in heavy rain or after a car wash. So far have been able to safely pull over since I've been in town when this has happened. Hate to think what would have happened in heavy traffic or at high speeds. Warranty will not cover this. Dealer will replace for a fee.

I have experienced wiper motor failures similar to campaign #98043. When it rains, my wipers will sporatically stop working. I have read about recall #98043, but am aware that it does not apply to 1998 Blazer. Nevertheless, the problem seems to be identical to those from the earlier recalls. Please advise.

The windshield wiper failed to park in the down position. On an intermittent basis, the wiper would only operate at high speed. The wiper would stop during operation iwithout warning when it was operated at less than high speed. This occurred twice under rainy driving conditions. I purchase a new delay module at the dealer for $88 and it has fixed the problem. I noted that Chevrolet has previously had this problem on other vehicles.
