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.

Turn signals fail intermittently. Pressing hazard warning switch off/on while/after placing turn signal in either (right/left turn) positions will eventually get the turn signals operating.

Turn signals sometimes do not work. Hazard lights do not stay on. Constantly shut right off. Driving at times can be dangerous when you put on the turn signal and it doesn't work.

I have intermittently working turn signals. I have contacted my local dealer on numerous occasions. There is a recall on the hazard switch that affects the same year of manufacture products that have the same problem as me, intermittent turn signal loss. I have followed the advice of the dealership, that, when this occurs, lightly press the hazard switch, and then if the turn signal starts functioning, that means I have the same defective switch as the other affected make of Chevy cars that are under recall. Well, lightly pressing the hazard switch does makes my turn signals function normally. According to a GM plant employee, my car has the same electrical components that the other cars under recall affected models have. Why is my car not considered "under recall"? the dealership will charge me to have it repaired, until this is a recall issue.

The contact stated the turn signals and hazard lights worked intermittently. The dealership was contacted. They were aware of other Chevrolet vehicles which had a problem with the wiring switch in the steering column. However, there were no recalls. No repairs have been made, and the problem was progressively getting worse.

Turn signals intermittently inoperative. Notice hazard switch intermittently inoperative. If you play with hazard switch and get hazard lights to function then turn signals will function. Will replace hazard switch as I believe it to be malfunctioning (an intermittent open circuit in switch).
