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.

Just one of many other problems; replaced the resistor pack 3 times; yes I checked current draw of the fan and it's not excessive.

the fan doesnt work on #1 and #2 what the hell is that all about. Either you freeze or overheat they need to do something about this.

The AC or heater works only on setting 3 or higher, 1 and 2 just don't blow any air. Not such a big deal but kind of annoying.

Blower motor fan control settings #1 and #2 are non-functional.. Definently a GM & Delphi defect which they are aware of and should fix at no cost to the consumer. My son and I bought new 2000 Malibu's and both have experienced this problem at about 40000?? miles plus.

Malibu LX

  • 70,000 miles

THE FAN DOESN'T WORK ON THE 1 OR 2 SETTINGS. THERE IS A RELAY PACK THAT IS BETWEEN THE SWITCH AND THE FAN. THE RESISTORS THAT CONTROL THE ONE AND TWO SETTING OVERHEAT AND FAIL. YOU CAN GO TO RADIOSHACK AND GET THE RESISTOR AND SOLDER THEM. I HAD THAT PROBLEM WHEN I BOUGHT MY NIGHTMARE AND HAD THE DEALER FIX IT.
