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.

1998 Chev. Malibu LS the turn signal CHIME stated going off intermittently inadvertently in June. The issue worsened during the summer months. The issue slowed as the weather became cooler. Was at an auto dismantler and I picked up a turn and emergency light switch and replaced it. This solved the issue for about one year. Around August of the following year it stated again and became progressively worse as time progressed. The CHIME now is on about 95% of the time. I will try replacing the turn and emergency light switch with a used one again and see what happens.
