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.

I replaced the resister and thought this was the magic fix. Days later same problem. Replaced the switches and same problem. Blower only works on some days. Mainly in the morning it works. The heat comes, no AC blower. The back connections on the switches are tubes. What do these tubes do?

The malibu has so many problems. The heater blower went out, the heat doesn't work on all settings, and now why not the rear defroster doesn't work. What a lemon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
