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.

What idiot engineer thought to put that circuit board in that location,i can't believe gm would be that dumb to put that wiper set up in a work truck and not recall all of them.

Silverado 350 Vortex

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

I found when I grabbed the module the wipers would start. So back in 2000 I put a tie wrap around the connector so it couldn't move and that fixed it for a long time. Again in 2013 it started with the windshield wipers not going on when I turned them on And then no matter what I did with tightening the connector down I could not fix it.
