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.

Cavalier 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 242,000 miles


The problem occurs intermittently. When I put my turn signal or hazard it, the lights start flashing then stop flashing (remain on). The time it take before it stops flashing is very variable. I tought it could be the relay because the problem is with all the flashers (front, rear, left, right, even those in the dash) and I can hear it stop clicking.

Another chev problem. The electrical is buggered - apparently this happens all the time. The wiring gets corroded and the turning signals get messed up so that the lights stay on (don't flash) when you turn them on. Changed all the bulbs and the flasher relay and then find out from a parts guy at the dealer that this happens to most pontiacs and chevys after about 5 or 6 years on the road. Maybe its a 'north' thing (salt on the roads in the winter) but its still a real pain.
