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

Jan 012008

Cavalier 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,030 miles


For the last 2 years my rear defrost hasn't worked. I checked the connection on the glass and they are fine. The light comes on when I press the button but it don't clear the window.

I often press the button still out of habit. Now this morning when my windows were frosted I pressed the button and by the time it shut off I noticed that it had warmed up slightly and cleared fine lines across the window. This tells me that I do have power to the system but not enough.

If anyone has had this problem I'd like to know what the fix was. I might try replacing the switch. I haven't done it yet because they are expensive and I don't want to waste my money if it's not that.
