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.

No prior event. Turn signal flasher ceased to function full time. It has been intermittent for several days. Hazard lights nor turn signals blink. Bulbs come on and stay on. No flasher.

Suddenly the directional signals failed to work. The light would go on and then stay on. When I turn off the engine and restart many times they will again work for awhile and then suddenly stopped again. I've checked the fuzes, etc. But nothing helps. This could present safety issues. Checking on the internet I find many have had this same problems.
