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.

Monte Carlo LS 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 119,000 miles

So I was doing my homework at the Pier and I'm with my girlfriend being attacked by ducks and vicious sea creatures. It looked like a storm was rolling in so we decided to leave. After the outing I preceded to glance at my pearly white monte glimmering in what was left of the sunlight thinking of how many pricks in BMW's I could smoke with it. "That is a nice car" my girlfriend exclaimed and immediately I felt warm and fuzzy inside until I got in the car to start it. I turn out of the parking lot and all I hear is one click; the click of the blinker stick. So I said three magic words initialed W.T.F. and preceded to flick the blinker stick up and down. After this failed attempt, I turned it off then on again. Still I had no blinkers! So I said we have to stick our hands out the window to signal other cars AKA "manual blinkers." Remember that storm? It descended on us with black rain clouds lusting to rot my interior. And that is what they would do if wasn't for the mighty "wet and dry vac."

End result: 2 wet arms from two different people, a maelstrom of curse words, unsafe feelings, and a pissed off girlfriend. (<-------The last one is impossible to fix.)

Monte Carlo V6

  • Automatic transmission

Okay so basically my hazard lights work, so it's not the light bulb itself.. But when I go to turn the blinkers on, i turn the lever up or down and the blinkers just dont turn on. Like I have to smack my hood hard to get them to flicker a little. I've been using my hand signals I learned from biking, but it's still insanely inconvenient... Help please????
