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.

2003 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

I found my heater blower motor wouldn't work at any speed checked the fuses and the motor itself, but I ended up going to the dealer in Hamilton ON because I needed it fixed quickly and for those who have experienced those wonderful Canadian winters driving with no defroster isn't really an option. It cost $280 to fix the blower motor resistor at the dealer. Take my advice, if you have the the time to fix it yourself you'll save $210, $180 of which is for and hour and a half of labour, and the rest is an "inspection". (Avoid John Bear in Hamilton Ontario)

The real problem however is that the seal under the windshield wiper cowling gets worn out and leaks water into the heater and A/C components and water really does a lot of damage to electrical components. You can fix it by using silicone caulking as a temporary fix until it can be properly fixed with a new seal, once again if you have the time to fix it yourself it's not that hard or expensive.

Too bad I have no free time
