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 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

Brake lights do not work if the turn-signal/bright light/wiper lever is moved slightly forward of its normal position. After using the turn signals or bright lights the brake lights will not work unless the lever is pulled up toward the driver. The car has not been involved in any accident, nor has the turn signal lever been removed in the five years I have owned the vehicle. There are no other electrical problems with the vehicle and the failure seems to be a result of design. The light on the rear deck still works. Driver may not be aware of the failure and a rear-end collision is possible as a result of sudden braking. Problem was just discovered and has not yet been repaired.
