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.

problem #2

Cavalier 2.2L Ecotec

  • Manual transmission

Sticking push pin switch in door mount pillar, driver side. ( Down by your left knee, door hits it and shuts off interior lights and radio ect when it closes.) Cheap switch all plastic made gets sticky and stays in so your radio and lights inside won't shut off until it decides to press out. Oil may or may not help. Try oil first.

Solution in my case. $20 switch from Advance Auto. Old one just pries out with a screwdriver. lift tab lock on switch back and remove clip, push in new one. About the hardest thing in doing this is not dropping the wires back into the switch hole until you are done. Make sure the clip clicks in place so it doesn't fall off. No mechanic needed for this job its so easy.
