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.

Ac blower fan works in high only. Upon checking the wiring I notices the resistor and the wire harness were burnt which caused the problem. I replaced the wire harness and resistor which fixed the problem. Upon further searching I found many others with the same problem and some that ended up in fires under the dash.

2005 Chevy Colorado with around 84,000 miles (blown engine)!!! broken piston connecting rod; putting two holes on each side of the cylinder with the piston rod sticking completely through the opposite side of the cylinder. Oil and smoke that came from the vehicle could have caused a terrible accident, especially if there had been a motorcycle behind me. Replaced engine myself due to GM doing nothing. Filed a case with them and it was denied.
