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 Malibu Owner Comments

problem #2

The turn signal clicking whenever, sometimes non-stop, is annoying at best. I see from the MANY complaints of Malibu owners that replacing the hazard light switch does not always fix it. I read on another site that it can be caused by worn contacts in the turn signal switch in the steering column. Sometimes there are little brass filings making an electrical connection. At least it a starting point, I didn't just want to start throwing parts at it. Sure hope this fixes it.

This just started on my way to work this morning so I'm not sure how big of a problem it will turn out to be. My daughter has a 2000 Malibu and she has to hit the hazard lights to make the signal lights work - I'm concerned that I will end up having this type of problem.
