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.

I have a 1998 Chevy S10 pick up truck the windshield wipers stay off or go off at random times and comes back on when not needed. There is surly something wrong with this set up and possibly reused old parts from previous year makes and models there are lots of complaints on this and I was wondering if it has been looked into.

While driving my windsheild wipers work at any speed they wanted even after turning them off, causing my wipers to wear out faster, then they quit working.

Windshield wipers work sporadically. They will work with no problems for weeks and then all of a sudden they will stop and not work.

Problem w/ wiper control on '98 S-10 w/ 48,000 miles. First observed 6 months ago when windshield washer fluid was no longer pumped to windshield. Replaced pump in resevoir-- still had problem. About 1 month ago, wipers began operating erratically-- either running too fast, not at all, or refusing to shut off. Suspect this may be a control board issue, but current recall only covers '97's and earlier
