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.

Brake lights stay on most of the time. sometimes go off then wont come on when i apply brake. sometimes flash. Had this fixed before(thought i did). I've had the same problem 3times since now they are telling me that it is the body control module. what the hell is the problem? I also found out that this is happening in 5 other GM models. Is there a recall or what? To me this is dangerous. I'm afraid someone is going to run into me cause of not knowing if I'm stopping or not when the lights decide they are not coming on. Is there a mechanic out there that actually knows what the hell this is?

Malibu Classic 2.4L 4 Clynder

  • Automatic transmission

when driving the Malibu i have been told i have a break light out on the passenger side and i have changed the housing and break unit and the break light will still not work. i noticed when removing the outside cover the prongs for the lights were corroded from water seeping in to the unit. i don't know if there is a manufacturers warranty on this but it not only is a pain but it puts me in harms way every time i am in the car. if people don't see a break light when following me then what is to say that they wont rear end me. this problem needs addressed by the manufacturer.
