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.

1999 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #2

Silverado 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


The turn signal flasher clicks constantly. The problem is with the turn signal multifunction switch. The problem is the Dealership price ranges from $250-350 depending upon possible mechanic discounts. I am a mechanic and I can get it for $250. A regular person would have to pay $350. I also can find them on EBAY for about $100 aftermarket. Gm has had this problem on other models and years from about 1997 to approx 2003. There is no way a switch should cost this much. Even $100 is a little hard to swallow.

(reported on)

Silverado LT 5.3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

since about a year there is occasionally (quite often and seems to get oftener every time) a clicking sound that seems to come from inside the dash, somewhere around the steering. It sounds just like the contactor of the turn signal, but the signal lights are not on and do not show any light. Who knows the answer to this failure? please let me know.
